The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

It is about time to chill out a bit this weekend after all the crazy punk rock last weekend. Thanks to another edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator you can find a mellow weekend ahead with acoustic sets from The Green, Mishka, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, and of course plenty more reggae shows!

But if you want another crazy weekend head out to Denver for three full days of punk, rock, alternative, metal, hip-hop, and so much more! The Annual Riot Fest and Rodeo returns to Denver again for another year of music, carnival rides, food vendors, and sideshow performers. This year’s Riot Fest has found a new venue and will be held on 5 stages spread across the National Western Complex and will again will continue to tour across North America to Chicago and Toronto as well.

All the fun starts Friday with a lineup too massive to list in full. To name a few, Friday’s lineup includes System Of A Down, Iggy Pop, Ice Cube, Motorhead, Cypress Hill, Anthrax, De La Soul, and 88 Fingers Louie. Saturday is headlined by Modest Mouse with the Iration, Pixies, Run DMC, Rancid, Alkaline Trio, Thrice, Cold War Kids, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Vandals, and Less Than Jake. Finally, Riot Fest will close out Sunday with headliners The Prodigy following Snoop Dogg, Tenacious D, Flogging Molly, The Lawrence Arms, Nada Surf, Andrew W.K., and Reverend Horton Heat. And if that’s not enough music for the weekend then make sure to catch all the official after shows being held throughout the city. Party each nightafter the festival at Summit Music Hall and Marquis Theater with additional sets by Thrice on Friday, The Lawrence Arms on Saturday, and Rancid on Sunday.

In addition to all the music, Riot Fest and Rodeo is also well-known for all the extra fun. The carnival atmosphere provides a sometimes needed break from the music. Attendees will have plenty of choices when hungry and thirsty with tons of food vendors, food trucks, and bars. But careful how much you consume! An adult playground awaits with carnival and fair rides and the Riot Putt mini-golf course. And then last but not least, make sure to catch Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow, an underground rock-n-roll traveling freak show. Catch all the fun of sword swallowing, a “pain-proof” pinup, a half man, and of course Mr. Buggles the dog will be there.

Remember to come by here every single Thursday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
