Official press release:
New England Metal And Hardcore Festival is stoked to announce that we teaming up with MI Annex and headed back to Austin, TX. For a third straight year we are bringing some amazing metal and hardcore bands to MI Annex on Friday March 16. Last year this event was packed to capacity with lines of people outside still trying to get in. This year it's bigger and better with the All In Merch Stage. Once again this event is open to the public - no wristband or badge needed, it's ALL AGES and more importantly FREE. The insanity starts at Noon. Make sure you follow us on our social media sites (listed below) as we will be posting exclusive updates all through our Boston to Austin trip.
"We are livin the dream in Austin! It's all about Music, BBQ and having a good time" says festival co-founder Scott Lee. "The SXSW Day Party lineup we put together has to be a true representation of what the festival is all about and I think we've done it again this year with bands like iwrestledabearonce, Holy Grail, Lionheart, Cancer Bats, Volumes, Molotov Solution, Gideon, Betrayal, To Each His Own, To Speak Of Wolves and Surrounded By Monsters."
Sponsors this year include All In Merch, Iron Fist Clothing, Soundrink, Break Thru Music, MassConcerts, Plug Your Holes, Green Vans, Century Media Records, Prosthetic Records, Mediaskare Records, Metal Blade Records, Blk Heart Group, Facedown Records, Solid State Records and Rock And Shock Horror & Music Convention. They are the ones who make it possible for this show to be FREE. So please check them out!

Safe to say the place will be empty after Lionheart, except for gays.
2/29/2012 7:16:42 PM
Jesus this is an awful awful lineup.
As for the place emptying out after Lionheart, I really think lambgoat is the only place they have fans. In the multiple times I've seen them, virtually no one gives a fuck, except people who will "mosh" to any band.

Yo dawg I heard you liked fests. So I put a fest within a fest so that you can listen to shit music while listening to shit music.
3/1/2012 6:22:46 AM
Yes nothing better than to have Iwrestledthegayonce bringing the ultimate motherfucking homoerotic party for all you fucking gays
3/1/2012 7:19:57 AM
Lionheart and Gideon. other than that, NOCAREEVER
3/1/2012 7:45:09 AM
Their fucking sets are 20 minutes long. Why even come? That's a waste of fucking gas just to play 3 godamn songs!
3/1/2012 7:58:14 AM
Actually, 20 minutes is about 12-14 songs for most of these bands. And none of them are grind.
