Southern Lord Records presented the Power of the Riff festival over two days, Dec. 17-18, at the Regent Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The all-day, all-ages event aims to “blur the lines between metal, hardcore, punk and rock music” with a lineup whose one common denominator is the almighty power of cranked-up electric guitars. Oakland's legendary Neurosis headlined, and Wolves in the Throne Room, Nails, Pelican, Bloodclot, Kowloon Walled City and many more appeared on the stacked lineup for the two-day fest.
