Sludgeworth reunites for Riot Fest

As if the lineup wasn’t already pretty rock solid, this year’s Riot Fest has another thing going in its favor; the reuniting of Sludgeworth for the show! For those who may not know, Sludgeworth were local legends from the late 1980’s that featured someone from Screeching Weasel in the band. I always thought they were better than Screeching Weasel (a band I never really cared for). They put out a pair of singles and one LP before calling it quits. Now they’ll be playing at Riot Fest and having seen their last reunion quite a few years ago (maybe ten?), I can tell you it is going to be good.

Here’s the lineup for this year’s Riot Fest:

Saturday, November 17
Riot Fest 2007 – Day One Congress Theatre (2135 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, Illinois)

Naked Raygun
Stiff Little Fingers
The Queers
Lower Class Brats
The Methadones
Shot Baker
The Heart Attacks
Shot Baker

Sunday, November 18
Riot Fest 2007 – Day Two Congress Theatre (2135 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, Illinois)

Bad Brains
The Casualties
Dillinger Four
The Bollweevils
Youth Brigade
