Justin Sane and Devils Feedback presents: FreakFest 2 (Freaks and Geeks) @ The Met 1/5/2013
We 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 &Â Dr. Finnegan Circus Sideshow, performing their brand of crazy in between sets and duringÂ theÂ performances. The night also featuredÂ body and face airbrushing,Â special effects make-up, a cartoon sketch artist & a crazyÂ hulaÂ hoop girl (Bethany Bubbles). Show goers were encouraged to dress to theme as either “Freaks” or “Geeks”, with prizes being awarded toÂ theÂ best dressed. Musical acts forÂ theÂ night were, Devils Feedback (Providence/Boston-Rock/
Metal/Hip Hop),Â Dead By Wednesday (CT Hardcore/Metal),Â Sun Of Sound (MA-Funk/Rock/Hip Hop),Â Shred Of Salvation (RI-Metal),Â Mechanical Process (RI-Hardcore),Â Bring The Antidote (MA-Alternative/Post-Hardcore/Punk) & SWC/HorraÂ Â (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 theirÂ FacebookÂ 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 laterÂ thisÂ 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 seenÂ Dead by Wednesday and in that time the band has been touring the country making a name for themselves onÂ theÂ metal scene. Check them out later this spring atÂ theÂ New England Metal Fest, at the Palladium in Worcester, MA.
Devils Feedback opened up their set with frontman Justin Sane being dragged toÂ theÂ stage in a straight jacket by two large men in white coats. From there theyÂ proceededÂ to blow the roof off of the Met with what was one ofÂ theÂ best sets we have seen from this band yet. We predict big things fromÂ thisÂ band in 2013, soÂ keep an eye out.
