The music lineup, art installations, food booths, and overall enthusiastic vibe captured the pulse of what moves the Windy City.

Boston Calling, the bi-annual Boston, MA, music festival, closed out its three-day September line-up with a lunar eclipse to top off a fantastic weekend of music. Each day featured clear skies, abundant sunshine, and crisp fall weather. Crowds were vast and the energy seemed to grow with each act, producing a crowd so thick it became hard to move between the two stages. Committed music fans waited for hours in the same spot in the crowd just to get an up-close view of their favorite bands.

Riot Fest is a festival of extremes. It is not for the faint of heart. It is a three day multi-genre music festival incorporating metal, hip-hop, punk, rock, and alternative music. A decade ago, it started in Chicago, and thankfully has moved to Denver and Toronto as well. It has an old school carnival feel to it with vendors and sideshow performances. This year, it took place at the National Western Complex grounds where they usually host one of the largest stock shows and rodeos in the world. I enjoyed this fit much more than the parking lot at Mile High Stadium.

The rain started early Saturday morning, just after the Umphrey‘s McGee set closed up shop. That dope encore was legit. The intermittent downpours left over 5 inches of rain in their wake on the fields of Oakridge. Personally, my tent was soaked. The air mattress was now officially a floatation device in the wonderfully glassy sea that previously was the tent floor.
