Riot Roundup: Cool Local Shit Going On This Week 9/7 – 9/13

“When I get mad… and I get pissed…”

Riot Roundup is a weekly feature detailing fun upcoming events in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Have an event that you want mentioned in a future column? Drop us an email and let us know!


Monday 9/7

It’s Labor Day, so uh… go have a kid or something. That’s what that means, right?


Tuesday 9/8

As far back as I could remember I always wanted to see Goodfellas at the Troc, at a special Movie Tueday event, presumably due to the holiday. As always $3 gets you in and goes towards a snack or drink, and the event is 21 and over. Check out their site for more info. Now go home and get your fuckin’ shine box!

Recently reactivated New Orleans doom sludge legends Eyehategod return to the area at Underground Arts, with direct support from Philly noise punk favorites Fight Amp, celebrating the release of their new 7”. Click here for more info and tickets.
