People who don’t know me that well or just meet me randomly wouldn’t guess that I would like metal/hardcore rock music. I love it!! It is what I have grown up with and when I found out that Korn and Avenged Sevenfold were headlining I just had to go. Mayhem fest was last week at the Verizon amphitheater; this was my second Mayhem experience and it is my favorite. It was so much fun and all of the bands were really good. The weather was so perfect, only high in the 70′s. Thank you! The last Mayhem fest I went to was the Chicago one four years ago and it was SUPER hot. Phew, dodged a bullet on that.

I had a few interesting experiences. For the band Miss May I, my friends and I were up close to the stage, which I knew might have been a bad idea for small people like myself. Yeah, it was. People like to crowd surf at these things and of course they were coming in my direction. Trying to push people double or even triple your size is tough. I went down a couple of times, but got right up to push more people out of the way so they wouldn’t fall on the concrete. I was more concerned with their safety than mine. After Miss May I the next band was Suicide Silence, which I love but there was no way I was staying in that crowd. I needed a break. I am glad I was on the sideline because Ice T walked passed me! He was performing with one of the bands. I am a huge Law and Order:SVU fan so when I saw him I almost died (not really, but you know what I mean).

It was such a fun day. Totally worth my $32. I got to see on of my favorite bands (Avenged Sevenfold) and had a great time with my friends.

in In Saint Louis

Over the weekend I went to a show for my internship. It was crazy! The bands were awesome. I saw: Stray from the path, Like Moths to Flames and For Today. It was at the Fubar. If you have ever been there, you know it is a small venue. The line to get in was wrapped around the building and it was already really crowded inside. Standing in like I knew it was going to be really rowdy. It was. The mosh pit was intense. I would of went in myself put I had all my promo stuff with me. Then people were jumping of the stage and speakers to crowd surf. The bands didn’t care, they actually encouraged it. I was tempted to do it. I really wanted too. YOLO right? I had so much fun and met some cool people. For Today, which was the band I was promoting is going to be at warped tour this summer. I CANT WAIT. Warped Tour 2014 here I come!

So from a metal show on saturday this wednesday I have a country show to go to at the old rock house. A group called Whiskey Myers. Interested? http://oldrockhouse.com/event/whiskey-myers/
