Megadeth @ Aftershock Festival

Info

Tickets: $89-$99 (2 days), $54.50 (single day)

 

Megadeth is the main act for Monster Energy's Aftershock Festival on this Saturday (5FDP on Sunday).

Not exactly a metal scene: Korn, Papa Roach, Steel Panther, and other miscellaneous ex-nu-metal and hard rock bands will be sharing the spotlight. Still, being as one of the original and most badass pioneers of metal will be there and it is relatively close to the bay area, I thought would be worthy of a meetup!

    Hey, was wondering how everyone enjoyed the festival. Sorry I didn't get to meet up with anyone, my cell reception was bad. I enjoyed both day. The highlight of day one was meeting Rita, Dimebags' lady. She was a sweetheart, took a pic with her, meeting her was awesome. Highlight of day 2 was during Five Finger Death Punch, when Ivan asked all the people who have served or are currently serving in the military to raise their hands, then told everyone else to thank them for their sacrifice and service. Now THAT was fuckn awesome! Aside from their music, 5FDP are a cool bunch of guys. I had a great weekend, going back next year for sure!

    UPDATE: Meet at the merch booth at 12:30pm! We'll also have sporadic meetups in-between sets at the food and drink vendors to fuel up on all our headbanging. This is subject to change. I will be wearing a bright, orange backpack which should hopefully be easy to spot.

    I retract my previous statement made on Lupa's comment and revise my intro to this even that I suggested. This may not exactly be a metal scene, but there are some veteran and promising hard rock bands i'm excited to see on Sat. Does anyone know a good meetup location inside this venue? I've never been. Also, please note doors open 8am.

    Dave Mustaine is a sad, weak, bible-thumping fuck who is completely irrelevant in today's heavy metal scene. In 2005 he wouldn't play a gig with Rotting Christ because he was saved as a born-again fuckwit.

      Megadeth was my favorite band growing up, and Dave Mustaine is one of my guitar heroes. I had to stick up for him. I'm not a religious person...by any stretch...but I can't hate the man because of his faith. It saved his life.

      Just dropping by to say Rotting Christ rule :)

    It pains me to say no to a Magik Fingers Mustaine show but I explored the set up for this fest and it is not doable for the Metal Crone. The promoters list of don'ts borders on fascism. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an appearance of GIGANTOUR in the SF Bay Area.

    • Annie C.

      So sorry you won't be joining us Lupa! I do hope Mustaine comes back for more shows. I have a feeling he will.

      Just an FYI, the Aftershock Festival is a joining of forces of a few festival tours. Gigantour being one of them. Not all the bands on Gigantour are performing tho. Hellyeah is a hell no for that show. I was bummed about that one.

    I'm going to this one. My spectrum is a little more broader than most when it comes to my rock/metal. Megadeth and Testament are the big bands for me there, but I also like some of the other known bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch. I get my alternative metal taste satisfied at this show too, with Filter, Korn, and Device is good too. So for someone like me, this festival is going to be very enjoyable.

    I got some friends that say they're going, but they never do. I'm usually going to shows solo. I'm hoping to find a group of folks that aren't flakes. If that's you, and you're going to this show, hit me up.

      If not, we can always just meet you there as well!

      @Annie, yeah, sounds great. It might be best for me to just meet you guys at the show. I'm heading up Friday night to meet up with some friends that live in the Sacramento area. They're not going to the show, I'm just trying to get a little visit in with some friends while I'm in the area. I got a room for 3 nights, heading back to the Bay on Monday. I also want to try to make it to the Aftershock pre-party at the Ace of Spades on Friday. It's free to Aftershock ticket holders. I might drag my Sacramento friends to the pre-party. Lol.

      FYI, I'm not a big drinker, not anymore anyways. But I will have a couple beers. I do 420 tho. So just giving a heads up to anyone. If you kick it with me, I might have a beer from time to time. As well as 420, and I don't mind sharing.

      That's just how I roll. :)
