Riot Fest Chicago 2012 (pictorial)

This year's Riot Fest was, well, a Riot! Actually maybe it more resembled a three-ringed circus, as there were clowns, freakshows, randomly roving  and scantily clad marching bands, professional wrasslin', carnival rides (and of course that means carnies). Add to that 50+ punk (or punkish) bands that played on (something like) 8 different stages, factor in the copious amounts of booze and its not hard to imagine the rock'n'roll weekend that ensued. 

 Our livers are on the decline, so we opted for "Riot Fest Light" package, skipping the after-parties and just attending the Saturday and Sunday Humboldt Park shows.
