Mentor, Ohio – The 5th Annual Spring Bash and Thrash was held a couple of weeks ago at Mentor on The Lakes Music Lynxx with many  eclectic styles of music to delight even the fickle fan . The night had a mix of good , bad and ugly . In true movie review mode ,  we give you our assessment of the night .

The Good-

I  was already a fan of The Bunny The Bear ( The headline artist ) so I was excited about seeing them .One of the best parts of the evening was being pleasantly surprised by some outstanding acts that even thou I never heard of them, I was delighted to see  them perform .Some of the outstanding acts of the night were FayTree , Echo Black ,You Are a Toy and of course The Bunny The Bear . I saw Konipshun Phit a few times in 2006 and 2007 but this was an almost completely new line up and I see major growth in the band .Another good point of the evening was the staff of Support Cleveland Metal Scene ( The Promoter) specifically  Breanna ” Dragonblade ” Hamilton .She worked tirelessly to make sure the bands were paid and well fed and all their needs were taken care of as they were on the road . Hats off to her I wish all promoters were that involved .

The Bad – The really only bad point was that one of the bands  decided to set up outside of the venue and perform , hence drawing fans always from the bands on stage and just being rude in general .

The Ugly- 

The Ugly of the night was the delayed times of the acts as some acts were there on time and others late, it thru the schedule into a black hole never to see the light of day .I mean I’m old so I need my beauty sleep so 130am start time for a band it even too late for me . But I also understand it could not be helped and was not any one persons fault.
