We've kinda tried to have something like that. In 2009 was a 2-day metal/hardcore fest at the Beaumont Club called the American Waste festival. Day One was headlined by Testament and had Unearth, LaZarus AD, Skeletonwitch (last minute replacement for a local band, how awesome is that?), reunion show for The Esoteric, and amazing local bands like Hammerlord, Troglodyte, etc. Day two was headlined by newly reformed Coalesce and a myriad of good hardcore/metalcore bands, but I didn't attend that day. Read my review here

The next year, in lieu of the American Waste fest, they had Hammerween, which was a big local metal show the day before Halloween. The line-up was:

Hammerlord
Troglodyte
Diskreet
Serated
At The Left Hand Of God
Koktopus
The Cast Pattern

Basically a good chunk of Kansas City's (amazing) local metal scene. It was packed. I and some other people gave away so many tickets and there was BBQ at the venue and it was one of the most fun concerts I've been to. Made me fall in love with our scene so much. Read my review here.

Would love another Hammerween, but we'll see.

I was actually at Hammerween. One of the best shows I've been to, I really hope they do it again.

Cool! I'm good friends with Jeff of Troglodyte and Stevie of Hammerlord. Some of the best guys around. I'll definitely put the good word in for another Hammerween.

I met Stevie briefly when they played with Tech N9ne a few months back he seemed like a really cool guy. I seemed a little out of place wearing my denim jacket covered in metal patches . It was great seeing them play a show that big but it was also kind of odd seeing the audiences reaction. Did you go to this show?

Haha, no I didn't but I definitely talked to him about it. He was definitely stoked but knew they wouldn't fit in. Hope they won over some fans! Apparently Tech is a fan.
