The Riot Fest came to Denver, Colorado on September 2 for three days of rock, metal, punk, indie and Die Antwoord. Oh, and a rodeo, of course.
The huge weekend bash – which was held at the National Western Complex – included sets by Jane’s Addiction, Death Cab For Cutie, Deftones, Ween, Sleater-Kinney and Rise Against. But the talking point of the weekend was the Misfits reunion, which drew the Sunday evening to a close.
Billed as The Original Misfits – frontman Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only, plus guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and newly-recruited members Dave Lombardo and Acey Slade – stormed through a 25-song set including Last Caress, We Are 138, 20 Eyes and Horror Business.
Check out our gallery of photographs from over the weekend, plus this fan-filmed footage of the Misfits performing She, which originally appeared as a b-side on their 1977 single, Cough/Cool.
The second Riot Fest of the year takes place in Chicago between September 16-18.
