Dammit all.

So if I do decide on going to Uproar tonight, Papa Roach cancelled their appearance and P.O.D. is taking their place. While, P.O.D. would be cool to see, I was REALLY looking forward to seeing Papa Roach. Well, there’s always next time.

For those interested…

I’m definitely excited about this years Uproar Fest. I’ve gone to the past 2, and both of them had some sick line-ups and this one is no different. 

I saw Shinedown and Adelita’s Way 2 weeks ago and both bands deliver strongly.

As for Godsmack and Staind, I’m seeing them in 8 days, but I’ve also seen them before and they always perform well.

And finally, for the last main stage band, Papa Roach, I sadly haven’t gotten the chance to see them yet but I’m definitely excited to finally see them. It’s going to be one hell of a show.

Just looked back at my Uproar Fest 2010 album

There are a TON of badass Stone Sour, Avenged Sevenfold, and Disturbed shots. I feel like Tumblr needs to be graced with the awesomeness that is these shots. Also, I got some really close shots from when I met Stone Sour. 

What does Tumblr think?

Why can’t we have cool shit like this here in the States? I mean yeah, we have things like Mayhem and Uproar but I would love to experience Download, WITHOUT having to go to the UK to do so.

I forgot about all of the pics I took from this show. Looks like I’ll be posting pictures for the rest of the night. Sorry to spam everyone’s Dash.
