Riot Fest 2018: Bad Libs with Dodger the Dog

Photo: Mat Stokes

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?)!

We saved the best BAD LIBS for last! Dodger the dog has been a staple in the Riot Fest press area for as long as I have been covering the event. He is one of those creatures that just exudes calm, despite the chaos (and loud noises) that are consistently occurring around him all weekend. He spent most of his weekend perched on a small chair under a tent in the shade, people watching. We were lucky enough to be granted an interview with him before the day was over. I tried to sign his name, but I only made it to the ‘g’ before he demanded a paw print signature instead. You’re the best, Dodger! <3
