When we booked the Sindependence Metal Bash with the great staff at Fontana's Bar, they were concerned that not too many people would show up to the show since it was on Independence Day weekend. We literally told them that with the lineup we had in mind and the devotion of the New York City Heavy Music fans, that we would have a room full of hungry friendly moshpitters. This and more, is exactly what happened. Here is the proof!
