MetalView: Metal News Making an Impact

Mike Vanek

This month I would like to talk about
a few subjects that have popped up in
Modesto’s metal scene.
First of all as I write this I prepare to
be a stage hand at the biggest metal show
in Modesto History. Rob Zombie at the
Fat Cat!! Probably the most anticipated
moment in Fat Cat history. After a last
minute announcement on Rock 96.7 the
phone started ringing off the hook with
questions about the show and just a few
days later when the tickets went on sale
they sold out in 10 minutes! I will be
reviewing the show for Modesto View
so look out next month!
Next is amazing news!! We are proud
to announce that we have an 18+ venue
in Modesto with all the proper permits!!
The Melody Ballroom at King Kabob
2307 Oakdale Rd kicked off last month
and it’s the perfect venue for metal!!
We bring the metal to King Kabob June
18th! It is an 18+ show but Families are
welcome so bring the kids!! 209Productions
is proud to present in no particular
order…The Revelation, Nothing
but Losers, California Medication,
Mneumonik, Stigmurder, Cursed, Azazel,
and the Bay Area’s Dissipate. It will
be a RAD show at a RAD venue. King
Kabob is a full service Mid-Eastern
Restaurant with awesome food and full
bar for 21+ w/ $3 Drafts and $8 Pitchers
of Sierra Nevada and other premium
beers! This will be an epic event and
will be the first of many to come!!
Next I must give some props and
love to our Brothers in Metal Better Left
Unsaid!! These guys are currently on a
nationwide tour with National Touring
acts Mushroom Head & Hed PE!! They
have never stopped working hard and
this latest nationwide run proves it!!
Mad props to our friends from Modesto
as they embark across the nation doing
what they love!!
Finally we want to thank everyone
for supporting my column here in
Modesto View!! If you are in a band
and want me to write about you or book
your band just hit me up on facebook or text

Thanks guys Keep one foot in the gutter
and one fist in the gold!!
