Hellyeah, All That Remains, Nonpoint, Sunflower Dead concert report
All That Remains
Club Fever, South Bend, Indiana
This show had a great line-up worth seeing live. The line outside Club Fever reflected that as it went half a block or more outside and kept getting longer. The line was packed full of loyal hard rock and metal fans.
Each person had their own story to tell about seeing concerts like the legendary Pantera all the way to Metallica. While you wait in line most of the people in line enjoy passing the time talking about music or playing guitar. It was a pleasant 79 degrees in South Bend, Indiana which was perfect for waiting in line.
The temperature difference was a pleasant surprise because in Michigan it was mid-50 and raining where we came from. You could feel the excitement growing in line as it started to move. There were many diehard fans of metal in line that showed up on a work day including myself.
