“Riot Fest 2021 is almost here. Finally. It’s really happening. Unfortunately, Nine Inch Nails has cancelled all 2021 shows, including this year’s fest—with that, Morrissey will play Thursday curated with very special guests, and Slipknot will close out on Sunday.

All 3-day and Sunday ticket holders now get access to our Thursday Preview Party! And to benefit our Chicago community, tickets are on sale now for Thursday with all proceeds going to Chicago Coalition for the Homeless and other TBA organizations.

Stay tuned for more info and announcements, including a second wave of Riot Fest Late Night shows which will be announced this Friday, August 20th.

Our fans deserve something amazing and we can’t wait to be together again. We’ve been working around the clock to make 2021 even more special—so that hopefully for one weekend, we can escape the world and find comfort in the music and people we hold dear.”

Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) To Perform At Four Seasons Total Landscaping In Philadelphia

Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) and Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms) will be performing at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia, PA on August 21. That business, which sits between a crematorium and an erotic book store, previously made headlines after Rudy Giuliani infamously held a press conference there for Donald Trump in November 2020. You can purchase tickets HERE and commemorative shirts HERE. Grace commented:

“This will be the first and last time Brendan and I will play in front of a landscaping company and we promise it will be better than that MAGA shit show.”

Kelly added:

“Ever since I saw my personal hero Rudy Giuliani humiliate himself for the good of the nation at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, I knew I wanted to go there and follow in his footsteps, then shop at the porn store, and eventually move off this mortal coil by being burned at the neighboring crematorium. It’s not often you get to touch history, but that’s what Laura and I will be doing in this most hallowed of political and mulching grounds.”
