This past weekend we loaded up our guitar-covered van with tees, onesies and The Final Hurrahs and headed to Chicago for our Riot Fest debut.
The National, The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, Weezer, Modern Baseball, Kurt Vile and The Cure were just a few of the bands’ tunes that we tapped our toes to while spreading the good word of The Good Ones.
The reaction from shoppers in The Good Ones booth was overwhelming. It was so motivating to see the excitement of moms, dads, aunts, uncles and friends of little ones who bought TGO to take home to the pint-sized good ones in their lives as their Riot Fest souvenirs.
It was so much fun to tell the enthusiastic Riot Fest attendees the story of TGO and The Final Hurrahs. Seeing their faces light up as we told them about this fictional band of dogs who have all their own original music and that all the clothing coordinates with their song lyrics and fictional tour stops was such a wonderful experience.
Making friends was a big part of the weekend as well. We had so many repeat visits from Riot Fest attendees and vendors alike. The community was amazingly diverse, very supportive and definitely a fun crowd.
The Gentleman’s Western, the Anything Ever ¾ Raglan, The Roadtrip Hoodie and the Heroville Comics Tee were among the fan faves at Riot Fest Chicago. The World Tour Jacket was also in high demand and was a sell-out item.
Overall it was a weekend filled with good music and even better friends who came together for high fives, good times and great memories. Thanks for the love, Riot Fest Chicago!
