So Chicago gets Morrissey. Denver gets Jane's Addiction. And we all get Ween.

Following up on the news of the Misfits reunion 
that will be taking place at this year’s Denver and Chicago Riot Fests, event organizers this morning announced the first round of bookings for the multi-genre event.

Among the acts who’ll be playing both cities are Ween, Death Cab for Cutie, the Meat Puppets and the aforementioned Misfits.

Other bands will be playing only one city. Like Denver, for instance, where fans can see Jane’s Addiction performing Ritual De Lo Habitual in its full glory, while the Chicago lineup boasts Social Distortion doing a 20th anniversary rendition of White Light, White Heat, White Trash.

NAS, Sleater-Kinney and Tyler, the Creator will all be playing Denver, while Chicago has a lock on Method Man & Redman, Rob Zombie and The Specials.

Meanwhile, Chicago’s Morrissey devotees can swoon over the fact that their beloved idol will be headlining down that way. Up here, their Colorado counterparts can appreciate having one more excuse to feel miserable.

Denver’s Riot Fest will be held at the National Western Complex Sept. 2-4. The Chicago version runs from Sept. 16-18 at Douglas Park.

Look for plenty of details about both events at riotfest.org.
