I waited for this show the entire month, eager to see the finest metal bands Central Florida has to offer. They showed up and rocked it, much to my delight. The Haven in Winter Park was the venue for this free show, small and cozy, but with enough room between the bar and the stage for all the concertgoers to enjoy the show and even enough space for an impromptu mosh pit.
Murderfly and Chris Marsh Productions put together eleven bands from around central Florida for a little thing they call Mayfest. The fifth in a series of annual events, it was held in the same venue as the previous years – County Line Saloon in Melbourne. It was also the last to be held in this location Chris Marsh later stated; due to the building’s state of disrepair, and rumors that it is slated to be demolished.
Join me today, Saturday May 21st at the County Line Saloon, located in Melbourne, as I take in the fifth annual Mayfest, presented by Chris Marsh Productions. A total of eleven local bands will grace the stage, starting at 5pm with genres ranging from hard rock, to heavy metal, and whatever sound the genre-crossing MekaNism claims.
Breathing Theory at House of Blues
Last week, I was lucky enough to receive tickets to a show at House of Blues starring Breathing Theory, Traverser, Kill the Sound, and Meka Nism. The show was at 8pm, so I showed up at Downtown Disney about 7 to avoid the line, my daughter and nephew in tow. After a short wait, the doors opened, and we found our spot near the stage before the house filled up.
