This morning A Perfect Circle have been announced as part of the lineup for the 2017 Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California. They will play on October 21st with acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Mastodon, Gojira and Code Orange. Not a bad lineup at all!
has Blair been sacked?
Hope springs eternal…
*itching, scratching* I need my newsletter fix even if it is pointless … Blair … type something … anything …
Nice lineup indeed. Except festival setlists usually aren’t great.
Has Blair been tea-bagged?
Beer choices at last years Aftershock were coors light & blue moon.
Also if you judged Sacramento on the people that showed up to this festival, you’d never visit this god forsaken shithole….
It’s not as bad as it looks.
I didn’t make it to Aftershock last year but have been several other years. Yeah I’d have to agree with you on some of the people that show up. Fortunately by the looks of the Sunday lineup, they will be in higher concentration that day… I’m probably wrong about that. Furthermore, in prior years I’ve had some pretty good beers there. There’s usually a micro-brew setup out there that is local like ‘Track 7’? Maybe you didn’t have any interest in looking or they just simply didn’t have anything else. As for calling Sacramento a shit hole… were you born… Read more »
i had fun. had never been to an aftershock fest before…. but it was easy to get in and easy to get out. the crowd actually seemed fairly friendly to me. but i only went for the one day. beer was meh, and food i thought was actually the worst thing. but as music festivals go. it was well
run in my opinion.
and SAC is not a shithole. so can’t tell if you’re an actual californian or someone from out of state…..
Concert-goers at aftershock looked like rejects from a Mad Max Fury Road extras casting call. I guess people like to gear up and show how hardcore they are, or something.
Didn’t say sack town was a shithole. I said if you judged based off the people there and the horrible “beer”.
Yeah that festival brings people from all over California. Although with the shit lineup this year I think it’s going to be sparse compared to prior years. What you may not know… while we were in the drought they weren’t able to water the grass adequately at Discovery park for a few summers straight. This resulted in tons of dust a couple years in a row and everybody I know that went to Aftershock got fucking sick because of inhaling the dust (including myself) . People started wearing masks and bandanas to the shows to keep some sort of barrier… Read more »
I do have to say though… there have been some unsavory looking people at every Aftershock and when it’s 110 degrees outside the wrong people take their clothes off. That’s any festival though to be honest.
I’m glad they moved it later in October finally. We’ve all been complaining about the September and early October shows since it started. Too fucking hot around these parts.
The drawback is, a lot of bands for some reason take off to Europe this time of year for touring. Maybe that’s why the lineup sucks this year?
i’m a weed guy anyway.. so the craft beer scene is lost on me. but a few friends all said beer sucked and i don’t even remember what i had. i think it was a blue moon. i know what you mean by the bandanas and drought but frankly. all fests get dusty as hell once the crowd gets over a certain size. it’s dusty at coachella, and dusty at FYF in LA. i thought the crowd seemed slightly more farmerish and red necky but i didn’t mind it and people were all nice to my group. it was at… Read more »
Discovery park was cool when we weren’t in a drought but when I say “dusty” I mean unusually high levels of dust where it’s a fog almost. You’re just breathing that shit in because you can’t help it. It was awful and at Discovery Park one year they shut down the water fountains so you had to buy water. That’s a huge health concern and the first aid people made an announcement that they had free ice cold water all day long to anybody that needed it. When I went up to the first aid booth we talked about how… Read more »
