Last year, Riot Fest—which began in Chicago in 2005—set up shop in Philadelphia for the first time, an expansion that evidently succeeded as planned: This year, new versions of the fast-and-loud festival are sprouting up in Toronto, Dallas, and Brooklyn, where globe-tripping gypsy-punk madmen Gogol Bordello and SoCal skate-core lifers the Descendents will headline an all-day show at Williamsburg Park. Also on the bill: post-hardcore rockers Hot Water Music, on tour in support of their first album since 2004; New Brunswick sludge popsters Screaming Females; and the Bronx, who in fact hail from Los Angeles.
