Headed to Riot Fest in Chicago next month? Even if you’re not going to be at the fest, but would like a chance to see some of the bands playing, you might be in luck. Riot Fest just announced a series of after-shows taking place leading up to and during the Festival, which takes place from September 16-18. Kicking off on Wednesday, September 14th with Agent Orange, a handful of heavier bands will be part of the after-show schedule. The Dillinger Escape Plan will be playing on Friday the 16th at the Cobra Lounge, which is also where Fu Manchu will be the following evening. Bad Religion will be playing at Concord Music Hall on 9/17 as well. Thursday, who played their first show in five years over the weekend at Atlanta’s Wrecking Ball, will play at the Double Door on the 17th.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale on Friday (16) at 10am here.
