Aftershock Festival - Awards

Triple digit temperatures, enough white trash kicking up dust to constitute a rbiohazard, $30 rrparking ($15 each day), shit sound guys for the early bands... rwhat can I say, it was a rock rrfestival. Didn't stay for headliners either night, rno regrets
Violence and Destruction

Band that Sounded the Least Like I Expected: You could say I was disappointed. They didn't sound like this album. They sounded like POD meets metalcore. What the hell? Singer lost his voice too.

Best Band That No One Had Ever Heard Of: These guys were good, 4/5
3Memphis May Fire

Best Metalcore Band: Could be meaningless since I didn't see We Came as Romans or Of Mice & Men. Atreyu won a different award.
Broken Compass

Band that the Sound Guy Hated Most: All your treble mix belong to us
5Dead Sara
Dead Sara

Best Band With Only One Song I Knew: They were decent. Nothing more to say. Song is "Weatherman" and I recommend checking it if you haven't heard it.
Puppet Strings

Worst Band
Kona Town

Best Band: I had heard a bit of Pepper but really didn't know what to expect. These guys knew what they were doing and they were damn good. Stole the show in my opinion.
8Nothing More
Nothing More

Loudest Band: Doesn't really count since I was basically in the second row back. Third time seeing them and they've kicked ass every time, although the sound guy for this stage still couldn't get his shit together. Wish they could play a longer set but they played "Jenny" and it was predictably great.
La Gargola

Second Best Band: First song they played was "An Island" and it was flawless. Rest of their set was just as great. Second time seeing them and I wish they'd come back to Sacramento more often.
Megalithic Symphony

Band That Sounded Cool When I Was Leaving
A Death-Grip on Yesterday

Best Band I Heard but Didn't See: Got there a little too late. Heard them walking to the show but their short set (fuck the guy who put that together and gave Atreyu a mere 30 minute set) ended as soon as we arrived. Managed to hear "Blow", their cover of "You Give Love a Bad Name", and I think "Bleeding Mascara"
12Black Stone Cherry
Magic Mountain

Second Best Band I Heard but Didn't See: Resting in the shade, didn't really care to see them
13 Unlocking the Truth

Best Kid Band: No really this band is a trio made up of 13 year olds
14Theory of a Deadman

Band That I Expected to Suck but Didn't Suck as Bad as I Expected

Best Quote: "we've got a new album out, it's called.....................................fuck........"
Isolate and Medicate

Third Best Band I Heard but Didn't See
Blood Mountain

Best Hair
18Rise Against
The Black Market

The Least Pretentious Band by a Mile: Drummer had one of the smallest kits I've seen for a rock band that wasn't local or indie.
19Five Finger Death Punch
The Wrong Side of Heaven and The Righteous Side...

Best Reason to Leave the Festival Early
20Bad Religion
True North

Honorable Mention: Yeah these guys are out of place on the list and I forgot. They played between Nothing More and Chevelle and sounded pretty good but I wasn't paying much attention. I'm sure their fans loved it
