VENUE INFO:

NOTE: Venue limited to AGES 18+ ONLY

The Local Concert Venue
inside Sidelines Sports Grille
1440 Roswell Road
Marietta, GA 30062
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Local-at-Sidelines/222328006612

This clean, air conditioned, and well-maintained club-sized venue has become the number one hotspot outside the perimeter of metro Atlanta for rock and metal shows over the past four years. Boasting sold-out shows with acts ranging from Stuck Mojo to Mothers Finest to Kings X, the stage, sound, and lights are not equaled in the area.
The intimate 350-capacity room makes for an amazing ‘party’ atmosphere with the no-smoking ordinance and an 18+ rule in effect. The excellent food and drink selection from the attached Sidelines Sports Grille is reasonably priced and available past midnight. The Sports Grille is also smoker friendly, so no standing out in the weather for those who smoke.
The restaurant also has video/bar games, arcade games, several billiard tables, and dozens of televisions pointed to most every sports channel you can imagine. So there is plenty to do before & after the show and in between sets.

“This venue was made for lovers of music and bands. It was designed by musicians and has the best of everything!!”

Fear Factory at the Masquerade

Fear Factory destroyed the Masquerade on September 4th with an amazing set.  Fear Factory was one of the first bands to pioneer industrial metal. It was great to see them back in Atlanta after a long absence.  Fear Factory is on tour promoting their new album Genexas, which lead singer Burton made sure we pronounced correctly (ha). Their show was great and I found myself singing along while I took pictures of the band.  The only thing I didn’t like was the fact I could hardly SEE the band.  Once again the Masquerade didn’t bother to turn up the stage lights for the bands.  This of course makes it very hard to photograph.  Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed watching this band play some of my favorite tunes live like Shock, Edgecrusher, Damaged, and Demanufacture!

2015 Rockstar Mayhem Fest

The 2015 Rockstar Mayhem Fest visited Atlanta on July 26th, with amazing bands like WhiteChapel, and Slayer!

When I walked into Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood it was like a ghost town.  In past years, the Mayhem Fest is usually packed with people, but this year was different.  The entrance I walked into had no venders, no food venders, and no people hanging out between band sets.  I walked clear across to the other side of the venue to find a much smaller side stage than the previous years.

After seeing, maybe a 1000+ people watching the side stage bands, I knew the Rockstar Mayhem was coming to an end.  Also, the beloved Metal Mulisha motorcycle stunt riders were not present at this year’s Mayhem Fest. As for the bands, some of them just were not for me, while a few were amazing to see perform.  It was a sad sight to see the Rockstar Mayhem Fest scaled down to almost nothing, but I still had a good time taking pictures.

Enjoy the pictures for the last Rockstar Mayhem Fest.  Hopefully, some brave soul will pick up the torch and revive the festival!

Pathfinder Promotions and 120 Tavern and Music Hall Present “Marietta Metal Invasion,” a night of hard-hitting, in-your-face Heavy Metal from Atlanta’s Rigorism with their special guests Paladin, and on tour out of Florida: Sons Of Ragnar and Lacerate!

Rigorism formed in 2012 setting out to make music that doesn’t have a million genres, Metal is what is written, played and the adrenaline at a live show is definitely a must see. Strong vocals, powerful riffs, odd syncopated bass and drums make up RIGORISM \m/
