Last weekend was the 10th anniversary of Chicago’s punk-rock festival, Riot Fest. Walking around the perimeter of Humboldt Park, I mused about the festival’s rampant growth. Initially, the festival hosted a handful of acts, subtly strewn across the city in cheaply rented-out music venues. Now, the festival unfurls itself upon the city. In typical punk rock fashion, it unabashedly spans multiple blocks of expensive city real-estate, temporarily creating a nebulous of gnashing guitars and angst-driven lyrics.
