Riot Fest Photo Story!!!!

 

Riot Fest 2013 was AWESOME! We want to thank all you crazy hooligans for coming out and joining us in the madness! Iggy & The Stooges kicked some serious ass, and we’re still recovering. Was anybody else amazed by how awesome The Replacements were, considering their long break since 1991? If you’re already missing our delicious Riot Fries, have no fear! Riot Fries are still on the menu!!! In the meantime, check out these wicked shots taken by Geoff Stairs! Got some Riot Fest pics of your own? Post them on our wall HERE!

 

These good looking dude’s were serving up food for all you hooligans!

We also had our best serving up some Ribs in the VIP area. #Babes

So it’s safe to say there were a lot of you there!

Oh and Iggy and The Stooges played an UNREAL set. Did you catch it? We still can’t get over it!

And The Ghost Inside was pretty fucking epic.

And we threw down SO hard in the circle pit for Every Time I Die!!

Flashback Friday

“Back in my day you had to walk through a blizzard, uphill both ways, to get to Sneaky Dee’s for some King’s Crown nachos!”

We found this picture of College & Bathurst back in the day before Dee’s was Dee’s and knew you had to see it!

Now that we’re feeling all nostalgic, why don’t you join us on this journey through time, and check out a few of the wicked artists that have made their mark at Sneaky Dee’s in the past few years!

 
Remember when GOB came to play for our 25th anniversary? Tom Thacker saluted Toronto with “I love this fuckin’ city!”  followed by a “Here’s to you, fuckin’ TO!” from Theo Goutzinakis, right before busting out “Prescription”. It had been over three years since they were in town, and they were so stoked to be back at Dee’s!



This was probably the sweatiest mid-December night that we’ve ever seen! Monotonix made quite the entrance crowdsurfing from the men’s room to the stage. We’ve heard stories of people “banging” in the bathroom, but never on a travelling drum kit…




Were you there when Fucked Up packed the house in October 2008? Damian’s “Thaaank youuu!” at the end is oh so gracious.
