See Great Metal Bands At Shaun Luu Horror Fest

If you're in the Syracuse, NY area, there is a really awesome fest to go to this weekend. This fest combines two great things: b-movies and metal/hxc/punk music.

The Shaun Luu Horror Fest is an annual music/movie festival held in memory of Shaun Luu, who died in 2005 from brain cancer. From the fest site:

"Shaun was an amazing guy who was a big part of the Syracuse, NY hardcore/metal community. He sang for Word As A Virus and was a constant face in the crowd at pretty much every kind of show around here. He meant a lot to a lot of people and the fest is our way of remembering him and giving something back.

All the money made gets donated in Shaun's name to fight cancer. The first few years of the festival the money was donated to the American Cancer Society. Last year we decided that the money should stay local so we set up a few funds at University Hospital/Golisano Childrens Hospital in Shaun's name. One of the funds is to support brain cancer treatment and research at University Hospital, one fund is to get some new games and things for the activity room on the cancer ward in the children's hospital (the current activity room is run down and sparse...there are kids there that spend months stuck in the hospital, sick, and depressed as hell...it'd be nice to get some better things in there for them. Keeping peoples spirits up can make all the difference in fighting a disease), and the last fund is to raise money to build a new nurses station in the new children's hospital that will be marked in memory of Shaun."

So you can see eight movies for $20 on Saturday, then for $10 you can see twelve great bands, and at the same time help give some hope to cancer-stricken youth. You'll see the itinerary and all information after the jump.
