Riot Fest 2017 – Chicago, IL

Nine Inch Nails at Riot Fest 2017, by Omar Cordy/OJC PICS

Riot Fest was started a few years back in the grand spirit of the old school one-off festivals of lore. It was intended to be special from the get-go and they have done a reasonable job of sandwiching themselves into a busy summer of Lollapalooza, Chicago Open Air, and many other destination festival shows. Having a mix of alternative rock, metal, Hip-Hop, indie rock, and more has helped carve out its own niche, and between special performances, varied food and beer options, late-night after parties, and basically the cool factor Chicago offers as one of the best cities in America, it’s no wonder fans flocked to the event from all over the world.

Letlive Front Man Launches Lifestyle Brand

Gentlemen in real life

Jason Aalon Butler, the front man of letlive has announced the launch of his lifestyle line Gentle Men In Real Life (G.I.R.L.). Butler himself outlined the culture of the brand meaning to espouse one that:

 

“…encourages uniqueness and nurtures the desire to do and be more. We believe that there is no such thing as the average man (or woman, for that matter). This is our mantra and you will find it as an accompaniment to all we do as a brand. The inevitable disparities that lie between all of us as people, are what grant us that particular uniqueness and a chance to be something special. Something more than average. If you possess the desire to excel and a belief in yourself, then Gentlemen In Real Life is your catalyst; offering products that are made with your same intentions. “

The first items rolled out in the line offer high quality hair oil, a high quality beard oil, and a range of apparel. From the designs to the actual screen printing and embroidery of the shirts and knit caps, these are all truly handmade items created by Butler and his team.

letlive. Removed From Upcoming House of Blues Show in Lake Buena Vista, FL

letlive.

Los Angeles post hardcore/rock outfit letlive. has been removed from their April 3rd show with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers at House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

The band issued the following statement:

Ladies and Gentlemen that were planning on attending the Lake Buena Vista, Florida date at the House Of Blues on the upcoming tour with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers and expecting to see ll.- due to reasons we cannot control, we will not be permitted to play said date. We have just been notified by the people at Disney Orlando/HOB that we have been pulled from the event. We cannot offer any details as to why since we were given none ourselves. Rumor has it that Goofy, Pluto, and most of Toontown were in protest against the decision, but Chairman Mouse exercised veto powers and struck down the proposition in the end. In the meantime, we will be trying to set up a one off at another venue in place of the this. Thank you so much for the unwavering support. It’s moments like these we deeply appreciate it/you.

Yours,
ll.
