Overall the event has been disappointing through the first two days.  Friday night was great up until about 10:00, although the crowd was smaller than I expected.  Junkyard sounded good and were really nice guys.  Winger and LA Guns both sounded great, but just when Tracii and the guys were starting to roll along, the sound was cut.  From what I was told there was an issue with a sound ordinance with it being an outdoor show and the permit only allowed music to go until 10  :angry:.  Why would you not have the bands start earlier with knowing this?!?!  Saturday was full of even bigger disappointments.   My wife and I noticed the band lineup info had changed.  We heard rumors that Ted Poley, Enuff Z' Nuff and Jetboy were cancelled.  Based on what I was told, it was the promoters who did the cancelling, not the bands who were already in town and wanted to play.  Lynch Mob was the highlight for us on day 2 and sounded really good with Robert Mason, but it wasn't enough to salvage the day.   I am worried that as a result of the promoter screwing over bands and the fans, many of which traveled from out of state, this might be the last event like this in the area.  Despite all the issues we plan on going back today since we've already paid for the 3 day reserved pass and it is a fairly short drive there and back.  As far as I know Romeo Riot, Lillian Axe and HOL are all still scheduled to perform today.

Thanks!  :drink:  We hope so too.  We heard this morning that Enuff Z Nuff is in fact performing today and Jetboy played at the after party last night.  Still stinks how things have been handled especially with Ted's band.

I wish I could see Junkyard one day though!

Been following the uproar over this fest via Facebook. Sounded like it turned into quite the dumpster fire.

Day 3 ended the event on a high note at least, no last minute lineup changes and the bands sounded good.

    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
