Riot Fest East 2012

Last year’s Riot Fest East was a dream come true. To see so many of my favorite bands from the past reunited as well current faves all on a single day, let alone it all happening on my birthday, was a one I would never forget.

This year’s Riot Fest lineup surely does not disappoint. With the recent announcement of Refused, The Promise Ring & Boy Sets Fire (all recently reunited) as well as OFF! (former Circle Jerks/Black Flag singer Keith Morris’ new band) as well as Lancaster, PA’s own August Burns Red. More details to come as the dates gets closer.
