Gallery: Riot Fest 2019

Chicago’s three-day, punk-rock carnival was host to Slayer, Jawbreaker, Raconteurs, Patti Smith, Rise Against, Bob Mould, Rancid, Bikini Kill, Lucero, the Struts, and more. Here are our favorite guitar-related moments from the 15th annual gathering.


Lucero’s John C. Stubblefield

On any given night in a sweaty, sticky club, you’d see the Lucero low-ender rock three different classes of instruments—an upright, a semi-hollow, and a solidbody. For this outdoor barn-burner set full of rockin’ tunes, he went solely with his 1978 P that he bought off former Against Me! bassist Andrew Seward back in 2011.
