Justin Sane and Devils Feedback presents: FreakFest 2 (Freaks and Geeks) @ The Met 1/5/2013


DSC_7292We kicked off our 2013 show schedule with a trip to The Met in Pawtucket, Ri for Justin Sane & Devils Feedback’s 2nd annual “Freakfest” show. This years show featured the crazy sideshow stunts of Wyck & Dr. Finnegan Circus Sideshow, performing their brand of crazy in between sets and during the performances. The night also featured body and face airbrushing, special effects make-up, a cartoon sketch artist & a crazy hula hoop girl (Bethany Bubbles). Show goers were encouraged to dress to theme as either “Freaks” or “Geeks”, with prizes being awarded to the best dressed. Musical acts for the night were, Devils Feedback (Providence/Boston-Rock/Metal/Hip Hop), Dead By Wednesday (CT Hardcore/Metal), Sun Of Sound (MA-Funk/Rock/Hip Hop), Shred Of Salvation (RI-Metal), Mechanical Process (RI-Hardcore), Bring The Antidote (MA-Alternative/Post-Hardcore/Punk) & SWC/Horra  (Providence-Hip Hop).

We missed the hip hop act and arrived in time to catch the last couple songs from Bring The Antidote. This was supposed to be their last show, but you never know. Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates.

Mechanical Process hit the stage for one last show before they roll into the studio to work on their full length album. We were treated to a sneak peek of a couple new tunes that will hopefully make their way onto the album, due out later this spring.

We haven’t caught Shred Of Salvation since early last summer. It was great to see them back on stage and sounding better than ever.

WBRU’s Rockhunt 2012 Semi-Finalists Sun Of Sound were up next. Blending a bit of jazz, hip hop & alt rock into a sound that is as unique as it is good.

It had been about a year and a 1/2 since we last seen Dead by Wednesday and in that time the band has been touring the country making a name for themselves on the metal scene. Check them out later this spring at the New England Metal Fest, at the Palladium in Worcester, MA.

Devils Feedback opened up their set with frontman Justin Sane being dragged to the stage in a straight jacket by two large men in white coats. From there they proceeded to blow the roof off of the Met with what was one of the best sets we have seen from this band yet. We predict big things from this band in 2013, so keep an eye out.
