There was something in the air during Riot Fest in Denver, CO this weekend. Dirt and dust (the event took place on a farm), and something a bit skunkier, thanks to Colorado’s legalization of a certain plant. A carnival theme took over the festival grounds, boasting rides, games, and even a boxing ring. Bands ran the musical spectrum, from Iggy And The Stooges and The Replacements to Best Coast and AFI, captivating the all-ages crowd. And aside from those potent puffs of smoke, there wasn’t a cloud in sight.
