Riot Fest 2015 saw The OBGMs take the main stage to screaming fans and trolling friends; the shit weather didn’t stop them from giving it all during their set.
Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal seemed to lay it all out and hold nothing back when we interviewed him at Riot Fest 215 in Toronto, with the help of Reano Films.
A Toronto favourite, The Dirty Nil took the stage at Riot Fest 2015 and continued making their hometown proud.
Partycat drew a bitchin’ crowd at Riot Fest 2015 in Toronto and it’s no wonder why, they keep it tight and put on one hell of a show!
Alexisonfire had one hell of a reunion show at Toronto’s Riot Fest, which only served to reiterate the fact that “they’ve still got it!”
I’ve been waiting for Marmozets to come to Canada for what feels like forever, and on their pass through, I finally got to see them perform and have a wee chat with them.
The Glorious Sons shot their official video for “Lightning,” off their debut full-length album The Union, in a freezing cold silo at a dead end road in Scarborough, Ontario.
The Flaming Lips were obviously one hell of a band to watch. All the glitter and lights add to an already amazing set.
It was muddy as hell at that first day of Riot Fest ’14. Walking between stages was like walking on black ice, but way messier if you actually fell. I made it to the Rock Stage safely and mostly clean (RIP shoes) in time to catch Glassjaw’s set. First time I’ve seen these guys in nearly a decade and they definitely rocked my face off. It was totally worth walking through ankle deep mud to see them, and damnit! I’d do it again in a heartbeat; those tunes and Daryl’s dance moves had me falling in love.
In the less muddy area of Riot Fest, New Found Glory took the Riot Stage and had everybody moving and feeling super nostalgic, and old, in no time. These dudes put on one hell of a show and really know how to work a crowd. They definitely know how to use the stage.
Body Count rocked a solid set at Mayhem Festival playing “Cop Killer,” tunes from Manslaughter, and covering some Slayer.
Suicide Silence did their thang at Mayhem Festival in Toronto; I was stoked to hear them live with Eddie fronting the band. These guys know how to rock out, and they can get a crowd going wild.
I haven’t seen Emmure in nearly a decade, I was pumped to be able to see their set and shoot it. A huge crowd was waiting before their set even began, and the photo pit filled up fast. Emmure put on an amazing show; these dudes have amazing stage presence. I still don’t know how Frankie was able to wear that windbreaker and long-johns without passing out from the heat.
