Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend Riot Fest and Exposition in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. While the weekend turned out to be a muddy affair, it was still a tremendous experience and one that I will remember fondly for a very long time. I saw some really fantastic performance including those by Andrew WK, Thrice, and Weezer. Hit the replies to read about the exhausting and exciting weekend I had.

The Riot Fest and Carnival in Chicago, the flagship festival of the Riot Fest brand, may be over, but the party hasn’t yet ended. Toronto may as well be Europe, because it’s the final countdown! (Sorry about that, I couldn’t help myself). Riot Fest and Expo Toronto returns this Saturday, and myself and Lueda Alia will be on site bringing you coverage from the ground of the final weekend of Riot Fest. I thought it would be fun to kick things off, however with a countdown of the Top 10 Things to See and Do at Riot Fest Toronto. Hit the replies to see the list, and remember you can still pick up tickets to Riot Fest Toronto here.

The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. Today, I've probably got the opposite to last weeks gym playlist by Jake Denning. I've been on holiday for the past week and I like sea gazing (and having a little existential crisis whilst doing so) and semi enjoying the sun and breeze that comes with being on a tropical island so I put together a playlist to bring a little bit of sunshine to your weekend. This is the part party, part "chill and watch the waves come in" playlist.

With the excitement surrounding Nightmare of You and Armor For Sleep playing shows again, I recently found myself inspired to look back on bands that left us all too soon. So today's playlist, brought to you by yours truly, is a hazy trip down memory lane.

Check out the playlist in the replies and break out the tissues - this might be a hard one to get through.

Kayla and Jono’s article ‘Pop Punk and Feminism: Intersectionality And Microaggressions’ got me thinking a lot about intersectionality in rock music.

This notion of rock music being for white people only is not only damaging to the genre and “scenes” which people belong to, but extremely exclusionary to people of colour who actually enjoy the music. Going to gigs to be a part of the musical experience is normal but when you feel like you don’t belong in a place, I’ve found that it prevents you from even going to the shows in the first place. This ends up creating a genre where it only feels welcoming to one specific type of people. It’s become a very common thing to say “no sexism, no...

Every year seems like "the best year for music since (insert year here)," and 2015 is no different. As we put our Mid-Year Top 10 albums together, many writers had to make changes at the last minute - there is too much good music out there. First world problems aside, we have listened to an abundance of great albums this year, so we picked our Top 10 favourites for you all to check out. From Kendrick Lamar to The Sidekicks to Jamie xx, you can expect to find all sorts of albums in our collective or individual lists. Head over to the replies to check it all out, and make sure to join the discussion - we would love to hear about your favourite albums of 2015. Enjoy!

Update: The "Feel Good Hits of the Summer" playlist is now available in the replies!

Today is the first Friday of the Summer. As if on cue, the weather in the Northeast has opened up, the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill have finally stopped tormenting us, and the sun has been shining all week here. Most importantly, though, today has been a monumental, long-awaited day in United States history. That landmark decision, among other reasons, has us filled with joy today. While we weren't able to put together a playlist to share with you all today, we will be back next Friday with our weekly installments of staff-curated Summer Playlists. Today, though, we want to create an open discussion....
