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 .
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 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.
All in all if was a good evening and I hope to get to to see future shows put on by them . Please see the official Facebook page for further info https://www.facebook.com/SupportClevelandMetalScene/
