I Predict a Riot



I love autumn. The chill in the air, the subtle hues of a gray sky juxtaposed with the vivid oranges, flaming reds and golden yellows of the leaves, watching the squirrels quicken their pace as they prepare for winter, the two days of chaotic, clamorous music blasting from the Congress stage...

November 17th and 18th are the two days of Riot Fest this year. Headlining day one is none other than my hometown heroes, Naked Raygun. Day two will be headlined by the infamous and seminal band Bad Brains. Some of the other bands on the bill are Stiff Little Fingers, 7 Seconds, Nekromantix, The Casualties, The Bollweevils and so much more. All of this in the fabulous Congress Theater.

So here's where I say we invoke a gathering of the tribe. I know many of you enjoy destroying your hearing as much as I do. Let's unite for this great event! Two whole days of drinking beer, hanging out and listening to some great music. That's what I call heaven on earth. Go to the Riot Fest webpage for all the info on tickets, bands and times and then let me know who's in. Don't make me call you a chicken!

I'd like to make it this year--last year our eldest attended without us. We'll let you know soon.

I've resolved to have more fun in my life in the coming two years. I shitcanned my plans for grad school and I plan to go out and booze it up as often as I can.

Good choice if you are trying to have more fun. Nothing sucks the joy out of life quite like the pressure of school. I have to plan weekends like this. I view them like the steam valve on a pressure cooker. Without them, I'd explode.

I'm looking forward to working myself to death... That or drinking...

Tenacious S said...

Um, if I had to die, I choose death by drink, not work.

Narcissus said...

T, if one predicts a riot, should not law enforcement be notified as part of one's civic duty? Just asking...

I look forward to your formal response.

Yours in battle,

If the riot is one I invoke, I sure as hell am not notifying authorities. Just sayin'.

Too late.

Bubs, wait a minute. I thought you were joining us!

If I weren't sitting in a tropical paradise right now, I'd be jealous.






I'm still jealous.
