If you want more nostalgia-packed fun once Riot Fest packs it in each night, you’re in luck: the festival has announced 15 excellent aftershows. Several are already sold out, but tickets can still be had for the rest—those concerts are listed below. Tonight also features two screenings of Descendents documentary Filmage at the Vic, accompanied by Q&As with the filmmakers. And tomorrow through Sun 9/14, both locations of Emporium Arcade Bar (1366 N. Milwaukee and 2363 N. Milwaukee) host free afterparties.
