Food and cash donations accepted for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Friends Of The Cleveland Kennel.

Definitely “beyond”, Decibel Geek website editor Rich “The Meister” Dillon will be flying in from Toronto for this awesome event. Who’s joining me? What a great event and for a worthy cause as well. As Decibel Geek readers are probably well aware, I am a rabid Lady Beast fan and just reviewed their forthcoming Vicious Breed album. I’ve always wanted to witness Night Demon live and after reviewing Resistance‘s Metal Machine, they are also on my radar. I’ll be requiring directions to a local grocery store to obtain my non-perishables. Won’t be packing my carry-on with those!
