The cat’s out of the festival bag. This morning before the eggs were ready off the skillet, Riot Fest got out their line up news following yesterday’s cryptic teaser videos ("Been Caught Stealin" was one hint). Jane's Addiction fans should be happy to hear the band will perform the classic album, Ritual de lo Habitual, in its entirety, and the Hold Steady will break out the beloved tracks from Boys and Girls in America, with with Franz Nicolay no less, for the Denver (September 2 - 4) and Chicago (September 16 - 18) girls and boys.
If there’s ever been a reason to get to a show early to catch the opening act, Funeral Party is it. On tour with Deftones in support of the long-awaited debut release on RCA, The Golden Age of Knowhere, Funeral Party has an overflowing dance card that began at the end of March in New York City – includes an instore performance at Independent Records in Denver on April 22, two nights at the Ogden April 22 & 23 - and keeps going non-stop across the country through the end of June.
