Daily Riot Fest RoundupThursday, October 5th, 2017
Our festival merch sold out during the festival, but we ordered more, friends! Get it all before somebody else does and then you’re not as cool as them! Stock up at RiotBrand.org.
We interviewed the Regrettes about how to interview the Regrettes.
Santa Claus is dead.
Speaking of old people, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame announced this year’s nominees.
And speaking of the brass ring of the Rock Hall, here are a couple of great Tom Petty covers from this week.
Against Me! is “Running Down A Dream”:
While Kesha heads “Into the Great Wide Open”:
It’s been a banner week for new music from ’90s alt-nerd-ative bands. First it was the Breeders, then yesterday we got the Rentals, and today Weezer blesses us (because we sneezed because we’re nerds) with “Weekend Woman,” from their forthcoming new album, Pacific Daydream, due out later this month.
PunkNews.org premiered a new video from Juiceboxxx. It’s hard to explain this dude, so just watch for yourself. He’s awesome, that’s for sure. “Destruction and Redemption” is from Freaked Out American Loser, out now via Dangerbird.
Sunny Day Real Estate frontman Jeremy Enigk is releasing Ghosts, his first solo album in eight years, on October 16th. Here’s a new song from it!
In honor of the new album M A N I A (I just like typing that), Fall Out Boy just released a… Bluetooth-driven light-up fidget spinner, of course! Order yours now on their webstore before you get distracted and forget!
No, Benmont Tench, thank you.
I just want to thank everybody for everything they’ve written. For all the love for Tom, his family, and all of us. It counts. A lot. Xxo
