Other awesome bands I saw, missing a lot, but these are the first that come to mind.
Lack of Interest-random note bout LOI, when they opened for Brujeria, everyone was shocked on hearing them in a legit venue with a great sound, they normally play small bars with shitty sound systems.
Black Dahlia Murder
High on Fire
Drink of the year: Fruit Punch Four Loko. I had one before each show
Worst moment of the year: finding out Dio passed RIP
