Carnival Of Madness

Carnival Of Madness
Rock The Rapids,
Grand Rapids, Michigan

I decided to surprise my family with vip passes to the Carnival Of Madness tour.  The closest show was at Rock The Rapids, Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Which we covered Uproar Festival 08-21-2012 and knew how good it was and where everything was located.

I mainly bought the vip passes as part of my daughter’s birthday present for her 17th birthday.  Her favorite groups Cavo, Halestorm, Chevelle, and Evanescence were all going to be there.  They all inspire her to play guitar and violin, but most of all Amy Lee of Evanescence and Lizzie Hale of Halestorm.

Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival

Rockstar Energy Drink
Uproar Festival
Rock The Rapids, Grand Rapids Michigan.

My Son and I never went to the outdoor festival called Rock The Rapids.  Rock The Rapids is located behind the VanAndel Arena, in the large open parking lot.  This location makes for a great outdoor event.

We both wanted to see the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.  Because of the great line-up of five great sounding bands it made the show complete and amazing.  The first thing I have to say is that all the bands could have headlined each other.

Hank III Performs at The House of Blues in San Diego

Hank III, also know as Shelton Hank Williams, is the son of Hank Williams Jr. and grandson of Hank Williams. While Hank III has country in his blood, he also has a healthy dose of Punk, Rock-a-Billy, Honky Tonk and Metal up his sleeves. This week has been quite long after working Phish and Outside Lands in San Francisco. My intention on covering Hank III was to get my photos done and leave to go get some well deserved rest. I found myself watching the entire show as the crowd and the band leaves you yearning for more. Hank III delivered catchy riffs, a diverse and talented set with the antics of a full on rock star. If you enjoy any of the genres previously mentioned, Hank III is a must see show.
