Bad Copy’s infamous BAD LIBS are back for another year of Riot Fest! Our Bad Copy team spent the music-packed weekend running rampant all over Douglas Park in Chicago watching bands and then sprinting back to the Press Area for beers, hard seltzers, and round after round of one of our favorite childhood games. We felt like last year, while fun and hilarious, was missing something. While we got to see all these amazing bands and artists read their BAD LIBS, you didn’t get the same chance. That’s why we’ve included videos this year!
We didn’t know what to expect when we wandered over to catch Austin’s Drakulas play their set on Saturday afternoon. What we saw left our jaws on the Douglas Park grass. They seethed energy all over the stage playing catchy and jangly songs while magically fighting off heat exhaustion while being draped in all black long-sleeved turtlenecks. We met them in the Press Area after their set for a round of BAD LIBS. Check it out below!
You can also watch them read their version of “A Guided Tour of Chicago” into our technologically savvy and totally adult recorder here:
