Charlottesville has increasingly become a home and a haven to more and more bands & traveling musicians. Many of those in and around the Charlottesville area have a large field of music styles to choose from, including punk, rock, indie, folk, electronica, and bluegrass. Another style to include in the list is metalcore, a fusion of extreme metal and hardcore punk.
This Tuesday, Reliquis Productions will be presenting the Mercy Scream Farewell Tour, at The Garden from 7pm – 10pm ($10 at the door). Along with the band Mercy Screams, the lineup will include Endeavor, For the Broken, & local band The Decay Theory. Although Mercy Screams has been playing since 2006, this will be their last show in Charlottesville as well as their last tour as a band. Even if you’re not a fan of the bands, devotees of metal and loud music are strongly encouraged in come out for a raucous and sound-packed evening.
So in short: if you’re metalcore, love metalcore, don’t know what it is, or just love all things Cville music, come on out!
