DftUnderground Episode 334

RIOT FEST: Chicago coverage PART DUEX. This is the second half of our Dispatches coverage of RIOT FEST CHICAGO. Steve, Al, and I went to Riot Fest and all we have to show for it is these huge smiles, and a ton of shit talking (and these shirts that prove we were there.)

This episode we talk shit about a bunch of bands, but honestly mostly about Dee Snyder. And we also get into some of the bands who really surprised us with incredible sets. 

Then we listen to some tunes from THE FAR EAST, The SWINGING UTTERS, WAR ON WOMEN, and OFF WITH THEIR HEADS.
