In this episode, the mates explore and cover the 2nd annual Chicago Open Air festival (COA) where the sound of metal music blasts through the air and the food is gourmet, and the beer is craft. The mates speak to fans, vendors, Riki Rachtman, a up-and-coming band called Aversed, and much, much more! Once again, thank you for listening to another edition of My So Called Mates!
