Daily Riot Fest RoundupMonday, June 5th, 2017
Today is National Veggie Burger Day, but thankfully it’s also National Moonshine Day.
Richmond, VA-based Style Weekly has an update on the GWAR-Kathy Griffin beef we reported on last Friday. Looks like Griffin (improperly) name-checked the band at her press conference later that afternoon, and Beefcake the Mighty responded by inviting the comic on stage with the band to help decapitate the president, and to then be killed herself. “We kill everyone,” Mighty added. Read the full story here.
Superchunk just released a new 7″ and digital single via the Merge Records Bandcamp to benefit Planned Parenthood South Atlantic. These two tunes are powerful and raw, one is new (Chelsea Manning’s even name-dropped) and one’s a cover of the Tom Robinson Band. Have a listen go support a good cause.
System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian joined Prophets of Rage on stage at the Rock im Park Festival in Nuremberg, Germany to pay tribute to Chris Cornell. Serj sang the Audioslave single “Like A Stone” with the band, and you can see the emotional tribute for yourself right here.
Hot Water Music released the prophetically-named A Flight and A Crash on this day in 2001. Check out the video for “Paper Thin” in case they leave it off the set list at Riot Fest this year.
We’d like to thank AV Club for quenching our thirst by introducing us to the bubbly joy that is “La Croix Boi,” by Big Dipper.
Noisey’s Dan Ozzi is O.G.S.I.
‘Wu-Tang Forever’ came out 20 years ago today. I grew up in Staten Island. There was no one in school that day. Everyone cut to go buy it.

So don’t even ask.
What’s important to Action Bronson?
River Monsters, Ancient Aliens and Fuck that’s Delicious are the only shows that matter to me.

The Dalai Lama seems like a good hang.
Protecting our environment is not a luxury we can choose to enjoy, but a simple matter of survival.
