Offstage With DWP: Rise Against Acoustic Performances + An Exclusive Q&A with Tim McIlrath
Watch the live stream at any link below!
Coming from humble beginnings, punk rock and melodic hardcore legends, Rise Against, have been feeding the musical angst of punk fans across the world since the early 2000’s.
In this special episode of Offstage with DWP, Gary Spivack and Tim McIlrath talk in length about DWP’s breakthrough within the rock music space of the USA festival community and how Rise Against helped bridge the gap to make our lineups well rounded (as seen in many popular European rock festivals). Gary emphasizes that without booking bands like Rise Against, it would not have led us to booking other major acts such as Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and even Metallica.
The cadence between Gary and Tim in this installment of Offstage with DWP is unmatched. Experience it yourself and watch as they reminisce on their history together from Geffen days to past DWP festivals, parenting in this new digital age during a global pandemic, Rise Against music and songwriting, and enjoy one our favorite DWP Encore Rounds yet.
