Here's another festival alert! Montebello Rockfest goes down June 22-25 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. This is a big one with a lot of famous bands. Headliners include Rammstein, Queens of the Stone Age, Megadeth, Iggy Pop and many more.
Rammstein is a band I've never seen live. When I was in high school, there was a kid who sat behind me in a couple classes who was just obsessed with Rammstein. Like, he wanted to move to Germany to be closer to this band. I think they are a solid metal band for sure but I don't think I'd move around the world for them. Different strokes I guess.
Tickets for the fest are cheap - just $123 bucks. VIP packages also available too.
The Rise Above Fest is set for Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine.
The "crud" is going around my neck of the woods. Now my husband is sick and that is very rare. He actually left work early and that never happens. I certainly hope this "crud" doesn't morph in to the flu. I'm being run ragged, waiting on him hand and foot and let's just say he's a "whiner" when ill. So it's another day I've missed the metal news. If anything good happened in the past 48 hours, just let me know in the comments. Here's hoping I don't get sick. I got the flu shot (but so did Eric)!

Last night I couldn't sleep, tossed and turned and now I feel like garbage. So I'm at my desk, trying to get some motivation to get the week going and I stumble across this: rare Sebastian Bach footage, circa 2002. Go now, watch, watch, watch!
