Naked Raygun to reunite at Chicago's Riot Fest

Chicago's annual Riot Fest organizers recently announced the lineup they've culled for this year's festivities to be held at the Congress Theatre in Chicago on Sunday, November 5. Listed amid a number of reunion acts (Blue Meanies, The Bollweevils) is Chicago's very own Naked Raygun.

Think about it: 2006 brings a Naked Raygun show (the first since 1997, I think) and, before you see them at the Riot Fest, you can catch ex-Naked Raygunners, Pegboy, at Touch and Go's 25th Anniversary. Be careful what you wish for; this one came true.

In addition to the reunited groups, Naked Raygun will be sharing the Riot Fest bill with the Bollweevils, the Toasters, the Business, Mustard Plug and many others. For more information on additional lineup announcements, ticket sales and the like, check out
