Engine 88 at Riot Fest 2017

April 19th, 2017

We’ll be opening the Sunday show, September 17, 2017. We hit at noon, Chicago time. Blink and you’ll miss it. Also, a live webcast is planned, details forthcoming. Our first show in almost exactly 11 years.

PS. No webcast. But the festival was kind enough to livecast Drowning. Thanks Riot Fest!

    maybe just plan a secret show for the night before at a club under a made up name that you only tell your friends about (we’re friends now, right? 😉

    seriously, this is exciting news!

    Dearest Engine: I don’t use Facebook or I would comment there — this is the weird woman who flew from Milwaukee to San Francisco to see you play at Bottom of the Hill 11(!?) years ago. I recently found out that I’ll be driving home from a job in southeast Ohio for the duration of your set in Chicago next month… I’ll miss you by about 6 hours. ;(

    I’m still trying to distract myself from the brutal reality of not being able to get to the show in time, so instead of saying “sorry to miss you!” I’ll just say: I and everyone else who was at that BotH show will be at your Sunday afternoon Riot Fest set in spirit, and if you set up a show literally anywhere else at literally any other time, I’ll be there in person, too. For real, you guys are the fucking BEST.

    Thank you so damn much for doing what you do; I hope you’re all well, that life has treated you kindly in the intervening years, and that it isn’t too creepy for me to leave this message here. xo!

    Stephanie! Well, daaaamn we’ll be really sad to miss you, especially since Riot Fest is almost in your backyard, right???? 🙁 Ok, this just cinches the deal, we’re trying to set up a local Bay Area show sometime this fall. We’ll let you know. Hope you’re well, please keep in touch. xo D
    ps, not creepy
