Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since I didn’t manage to get to last year’s event I can’t say much more than that this does sound very interesting. If I am able to work out the time in the always shifting schedule I might try to do this one or at least keep track of any interesting Metal bands that might be doing one of the showcases. What about you readers? Does this seem like something that you’d be interested in participating in? Chime in down below.
