The rain moved on and the sun shone brightly on Day 2 of Riot Fest Chicago 2014. With bands starting at the very un-rock and roll hour of (roughly) Noon, the opportunity to hear and see live music showed up early and stayed late. IE photographer Curt Baran kicked Friday’s dried clay off his boots and muddied them up again while chasing down The Orwells, Tokyo Police Club, Streetlight Manifesto, Television, Pussy Riot, Die Antwoord, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Afghan Whigs, Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies, Wu Tang Clan, Metric and The Flaming Lips.

Still not enough for ya? There was also professional wrestling, a burlesque striptease and (what felt like) a beer tent every ten feet.
