Full of Hell’s GoFundMe Goal for Stolen Van Reach, Remaining Funds Go to Charity

In a good twist on a terrible story, Full of Hell’s GoFundMe for their stolen van with all of their gear, merch and most of their clothing has met its goal of $20,000 USD in just a few hours yesterday. But not only that, they surpassed the goal quickly and raised $37,092 dollars at the time they turned off the crowdfunding page, and are figuring out what charity to give the excess monies to. The band had been on tour for only a week opening for Cattle Decapitation, and they now are forced to drop off the tour. Below is a link to the list of their stolen gear. The list of musical instruments stolen includes 3 orange amps, 4 fender basses, and guitars, a custom-built aluminum neck guitar, 23 effects pedals, a full drum set and more. The band has been supporting their exceptional album from earlier this year, Weeping Choir, out now on Relapse Records. Please give what you can to support these guys. Please keep buying their albums, merch and supporting this band as much as you can.

REVIEW: Psycho Las Vegas 2019 – Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino

As far as large multi-day fests go, Psycho Las Vegas is still pretty wet behind the ears having only just had their fourth annual incarnation this August but already it has begun growing into what will likely continue to be the summer juggernaut of partying and music. New this year, to the dismay of many, was the location change from the off the strip and perfectly themed haunt, The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, to the megaplex that is Mandalay Bay. Gone is the feeling of a true fest take over and in its place, a sprawling amalgamation of “psychos” and people from any town USA or abroad there simply to gamble, throw pre-wedding bashes, get drunk or maybe attend a conference (*ahem* “conference”). Once everyone got their bearings and navigated through this corporate mega casino/hotel/shopping mall, pushed back a few drinks or whatever preferred substances they were into, and found the locations of the four stages, the complaining ebbed and instead, people experienced the fest for what it is. A gigantic party with a great combination of bands playing for four days. Continue reading
