Jarrod and I attended Riotfest in Douglas Park, Chicago, IL! Here’s the lineup:
My main reason for wanting to go was Nine Inch Nails, which I had wanted to see since my high school years – and they were AMAZING! Totally worth the 20-year wait. But Jarrod has gone quite a few years, and has sortof made a tradition out of it. There were many bands there he enjoyed seeing. Hopefully he will write a bit about it so you can hear his point of view.
And just as a bonus, while Jarrod and I were driving around one night after the show was over, trying to find the nearest Wal-Mart in Chicago, I realized at one moment that we were in the neighborhood where the show Shameless takes place… which I was quite excited about! So the next day we stopped at the Gallagher house before we went back to Douglas Park.
Besides the weekend-long concert that was pretty damn awesome, and the Shameless sight-seeing, we had a pretty good time as well. We spent most of the rest of our time in our hotel room, just hanging out, watching Shameless, talking, and eating delivery food. The trip there and back was pretty great too. Jarrod and I always have some pretty intense conversations, and it really makes the time fly!
Also, here’s a link to the entire video playlist of what I recorded while we were there. Enjoy! YouTube videos of Riotfest 2017
