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!
Over the last few years, Stupid Rad Merch Co. and it’s founder Simeon Meyer have been crafting a merch empire. Ever since I met Simeon and his lovely wife Becky outside of a Bad Cop / Bad Cop show a year or two ago, I began to see the company’s name and memorable logo, Skully, everywhere I went from the internet to Fest to local Chicago shows all the way up to Milwaukee. When we passed by the Stupid Rad Merch tent at Riot Fest, we knew we had to give the head of the Stupid Rad Claw Crew a shot. Check out Simeon’s BAD LIB below:
You can also watch Simeon read his version of “A Guided Tour of Chicago” into our technologically savvy and totally adult recorder here:
