RPM Fest Brings Metal to Massachusetts

The fifth annual RPM Fest united the Western Mass metal scene this past Labor Day in the beautiful outdoors of Montague, Massachusetts. Proudly hosted by the Miller’s Falls Rod and Gun Club, the festival boasted two outdoor stages and one pavilion, still with plenty of room for cornhole tournaments and a vast forest of campers. There was never a dull moment, with over 50 bands spanning three days, tons of unique vendors, and a variety of food trucks. As if that wasn’t enough, each day of the festival scheduled activities both before and after the daytime performances.

Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist, Nick Johnston at Toad's Place July 25th, 2019

This past Thursday, I had the pleasure of catching Between the Buried and Me on their North American Summer Tour. It was supported by fellow proggressive metal artists The Contortionist and Nick Johnston. The show took place on July 25th at Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut, and by the feel of the crowd, I could tell that it was definitely a heavily anticipated event that was not to be missed.
