1. June 1 @ Uncle Samís | BJ Annette Memorial Show
Topping off my list is one of the most memorable shows of the year, the First Annual BJ Annette Memorial "Fest". This was an all day fest organized by WADM/NYDM to pay tribute to one of the nicest, most caring, and greatest guys in the metal community, BJ. I was really great friends with him, and he helped me through some rough times. He was also great friends with our singer, who mentioned that if it weren't for BJ, he wouldn't have a band. So it was awesome to play such a great and meaningful show. Plus, it was outside, which has a whole different feeling than playing inside a building!
