This year, for Riot Fest, we decided that we wanted to do something a little different when it came to interviews. Sure we could grab a seat in the Press Tent, brush shoulders with some of the biggest names in music, and ask them who they can’t wait to see at the festival in the upcoming days. But that’s been done year after year.
So instead, we decided to bring back a game from our youths that everyone loves. You know the one that you always played on long car rides. We bring you BAD LIBS @ Riot Fest 2018 (See what we did there? Eh? Eh?)!
If we made a list of bands that we’ve covered the most on this website, Direct Hit! would be in the top three for sure. The Milwaukee (and kind of Chicago?) based band has everything that I love about a great punk band. Their songs are fast, powerful, and the band is actually made of up nice, intelligent human beings. Each of the four band members has such strikingly different personalities, we decided that we had to let each do their own BAD LIB. Except Devon Kay, who was no where to be found in the Press Tent. So fuck you Devon, also let’s hang out soon.
