Morbid Angel at MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
MDF

After all of the drama with Baltimore venue Sonar, looks as if Maryland Deathfest will return to the space after all... sort of. The scoop:

In a nutshell, we will be returning to the property formerly known as Sonar, and will be at least doubling the amount of outside space that we've been used to utilizing...The additional space outside will allow us to comfortably accommodate the crowd, and will allow more room for the MDF vendor village, food vendors/food trucks, places to sit, and other new additions like misting tents to escape the possibility of it being hotter than it should be that weekend. There will be two outside stages plus the stage inside. Due to the new configuration outside, the placement of the outside stages will likely be different.

As for the building itself, there are some renovations currently taking place, but the rooms will be used exactly how they have been in the past, and it will be air conditioned throughout.

We would also like to announce the addition of a second inside stage at Baltimore Soundstage, which is a 1/2 mile walk away from the former Sonar (at 124 Market Place), and will be used from Friday-Sunday. This will be a smaller show without a barricade that will feature mostly hardcore and punk bands, and it will be scheduled in a way that should not conflict with anything going on at the former Sonar compound.

Look for more band announcements to emerge in the coming weeks, including details on that hardcore/punk stage.

Oh wow, look who's back from the weekend to start trolling incessantly on BV again.

Wow.. best of all possible outcomes. I don't see how they could schedule the hardcore show so it doesn't conflict with "anything" going on at Sonar.

I think people in Baltimore generally like the Deathfest because it is one of the few things bringing money into their city.

Looking forward to another great year!

Cargo shorts.

Cargo shorts, Fat Bears, 8,000 identical tattoos, and only a few bands worth while since metal heads generally rip each other off musically.

8:31- absolutely. The restaurants in the surrounding area were packed when I was there this year. The city needs any money it can get.

3:13- as opposed to the astoundingly original indie rock landscape these days.

Asking a sausage to put together words to communicate a rational lucid thought is pushing it. Asking them to have wit or wisdom is beyond a reasonable expectation. Just deliver my pizza, fat boy.

I'm laughing at the frowny baby in the picture and all of the people who take him and his band seriously.
