WJCU 88.7 FM and Auburn Records will host a food drive for the Cleveland Foodbank and Friends of the Cleveland Kennel with a benefit concert on Friday, December 23rd at The Saw Concert Club (formerly the Jigsaw) in Parma, Ohio. Parma's own Eternal Legacy and Soulles will headline a 7-band billing. The free admission benefit runs from 6:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. with doors opening at 6:00 p.m.
Fans attending the third annual Iron Ingo Cleveland Metal Holiday Food Drive are encouraged to bring canned or non-perishable foods to help those in need this holiday season. A donation will be made from the Cleveland Metal community to the Cleveland Foodbank and Friends of the Cleveland Kennel (dogs and cats). The Saw, a popular Cleveland-area music club formerly known as the Jigsaw, had been on hiatus in booking original heavy metal bands since 2009 but recently reopened its doors on December 3rd with a new name and a return to a heavy metal format.
"I am absolutely thrilled to play at the old Jigsaw again," adds Eternal Legacy guitarist Shaun Vanek. "This club had become our home in previous years and we were all very saddened when it closed. We always packed this house full with pure diehard metal heads and I just want to say welcome back to the party. Expect one hell of a return. This show is going to be off the hook."
"We are delighted to once again be doing a show in our defacto hometown of Parma, Ohio," says Soulless frontman Jim Lippucci. "It's been several years since we've been able to thrash in Parma and we are confident that any DNA evidence has long since deteriorated, and that any outstanding warrants are long expired. The fact that the gig is a benefit for not one, but two great causes makes it even sweeter and has nothing to do with confidential settlements or court ordered community service. We encourage, no, we command all ye faithful Cleveland area metalheads to come forth with your canned goods and cash donations! Help a family down on their luck, or even a hungry pup or feline. Support the Cleveland Food Bank and Friends of the Cleveland Kennel by crushing skulls...with kindness!" More...
Seattle Metal Online will celebrate four years of helping local metal bands network and learn about the music business with its fourth annual Seattle Metal Online Anniversary Festival on Saturday, September 18 at Studio 7 in Seattle.
Seattle Metal Online (SMO) is an organization created by Carrie and Joe Jauregui in August of 2000, out of a love for metal music. They had a desire to help local metal bands network and learn the music business. The organization has been interviewed by Seattle Weekly, as well as many other local newspapers. As of August 2004, approximately 250 local metal bands are part of the Seattle Metal Online "Brotherhood."
When asked how the organization had changed over the last four years, Carrie replied, "In the beginning, there were less than 25 bands on SMO, and we had a much more of a 'family' type feeling. That is when the 'Brotherhood' started. Now the scene is SO huge, that in all these years, I still haven't met all of the 'family' yet! I love the fact that there are so many metal styles to choose from now. I was just looking at some old promo shots from a couple bands from years ago....those bands are no more, but I had to sit and look at the faces of those guys and remember those times and how far we have come since then.....it's amazing really...."
Event organizer Geri Nahrgang has spent many hours lining up the venue, lighting, sound, bands, and sponsors. When asked how to choose 14 bands out of 250 on SMO to play the festival, Geri responded, "Lisa Bonner of Syren Spawn and I listed all the bands, then we decided who had given the most help and support to SMO overall. We ended up with a list of 37 bands, to fit into 14 slots! After that we drew names out of a hat because all of these bands were so good."
The fourth annual Seattle Metal Online Anniversary Festival is being held Saturday, September 18, 2004 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at Studio 7, 110 South Horton, Seattle, WA. (one block north of Spokane Street, between 1st Ave South and Occidental). The cost is $7 before 4 p.m. and $10 after 4 p.m. The show is all ages, but an upstairs bar for 21+ (must have ID) is stocked with beer to enjoy while watching the show.
Local metal bands scheduled to play the SMO Anniversary Fest include: The Almighty Needledick, NME, Enkrya, Just Karma, Immoral Intent, Ground Zero, Prozak Staple, Dissonance, Dorgan Onor, Weight of the World, The Braindead, M.T.F., Expiration Date and the Seatown Manglers.
