So nice to get all the bands that have played here in the past two years.

All over Beale St?

I went to the 2009 event in Atlanta and while this lineup, what we can see of it anyway, doesn't really compare, it wasn't as overly corporate as one might think for a free day of great music. The only thing I remember being disappointed about, that was probably due to the complete corporate sponsorship, was Nachtmystium getting stricken off the bill because an earlier album had been distributed by a National Socialist imprint. Besides that, it was about as good a time you can have for free.

Didn't the Oblivians play one of Scion's Garage Fests a few years ago? And Jay Reatard?

I'd assume its the New Daisy / Old Daisy.

I too went to the '09 show. Great time and not corporate at all. My problem is the lineup this year isn't special. We have had most of these bands here in the past year or so. Sure I love the Melvins but if they are only playing that Scion EP again, I'll pass.

I've heard some of the ones that we haven't seen yet might be:

CoC,orange goblin, black breath, doomriders, struck by lightning, the atlas moth, testament

weird and boring.

Yeah, looking at that pic, Testament is definitely the big name that has been redacted for dramatic effect and CoC is the next biggest.

As to the line-up, yeah, even if they hadn't played here within the last couple of years, there's nothing there that makes you say GODDAMN like other Scion festival lineups I've seen. Memphis gets the short end of the stick, again (and probably forever, amen).

Still time to book Autograph.

Hot Lunch and Pallbearer are great.

I LOVE THIS BAND!

Whew!

All right, I'll take this Scion. Here's my credit card.

Looks like Negative Approach is no longer on the poster.

Tickets available for pick up at Goner, if you RSVP'd or whatever.

I shipped my Scion there, can you get Hoppe to autograph and detail it before I pick it up?
Posted: May 7, 2013 9:57 pm
 
Hoppe don't detail.
Posted: May 9, 2013 3:13 pm
 
Lots of people coming through to pick up tickets, folks are excited. All right.

Are they buying anything?

"Dang, we're fresh out of Tool cds!"
Posted: May 10, 2013 8:47 pm
 
Yeah, actually the people have been pretty cool, checking out stuff and buying... not necessarily metal. Actually not so much metal. Mostly rock and kinda mainstream stuff. I'm sure it's a trip coming into Goner for them, I give 'em props.

This was a fine time. Wino rules. And I got free socks!
Posted: Jun 3, 2013 4:34 pm
 
Good turnout? Hope so. We did have some metal dudes come by and buy Earth records. Could not get down. There.
Posted: Jun 4, 2013 9:22 am
 
Not too bad. Other than having to run around towards the end with the headliners, I'd say it went well.

I spent most of the day in the doom room/Club 152 - which was the only 21+ venue. It never got too crowded. New Daisy seemed to keep a pretty solid crowd all day. It was about 3/4 capacity for Testament. The sound in there was pretty terrible, though. Guess you get what you pay for. Nyuk nyuk.

Beale St bystanders seemed to get a kick from the death and grind booked on the Handy Park stage. I'm sure Impaled won over a lot of new fans.

In addition to the swank socks, picked up free Scion vinyl from Gates of Slumber and St. Vitus.

I wasn't totally stoked on the lineup beforehand. But it turned out to be a really good day. Ice Dragon, Pallbearer, The Obsessed, The Shrine, CoC, and Testament were all great.

And this guy got arrested.
