Riot Night was founded by Justin Chard and Katia Kianpour, two friends from college who connected over their shared love of music. Twelve years and many beers later they decided to throw a party to share their passion with the Arizona scene.
The first Riot Night was September 14, 2016 with little more than a laptop and a microphone but has since grown into a party featuring notable guests from members of Yellowcard, All Time Low, New Found Glory, Underoath, Atreyu, Finch, and many more.
Building on the event itself they’ve branched out into concert party buses, themed parties, listening parties, and promoting local shows. Now partnered with Live Nation’s “The Noise” and ticketing app Bravo Tip or Pay, Riot Night is gaining momentum and both Chard and Kianpour are excited for what is to come!
