Cursor, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 12, 2021

Cursor is an alternative metal band with a strong post-rock attitude that is front and center during their performances. Add a little grunge in there as well and you have a dominating combination.

The Impurity, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 11, 2021

The Impurity gave the crowd a healthy dose of straight-up heavy metal on late Saturday afternoon at the festival. They are another band I hadn’t seen before and was glad to catch. Great show.

Miss May I ~ Volbeat ~ The Lonely Ones Photo Gallery

Sometimes I don’t get enough usable photos to throw up by themselves. Totally my fault, but sometimes shit happens. Still, there might be a couple good ones and I hate to leave them in the vault. This is one of those.

Three completely unrelated bands: Miss May I at Blue Ridge Rock Festival (Danville, Virginia), Volbeat at Louder Than Life (Louisville, Kentucky), and The Lonely Ones at Higher Ground (Burlington, Vermont). The Volbeat photo is a crowd shot but I like it so I have included it anyway. Rock on.

Suicidal Tendencies, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 11, 2021

Mike Muir brought along a couple of new musicians for the set in Danville – see if you can spot them. It is always great to hear a little metal and punk smashed together.

Pigweed, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 11, 2021

This is a band that was completely new to me coming into Blue Ridge Rock Festival. They have an outlandish look to them and they are all kinds of wild on stage. Keep an eye out.

Hatebreed, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 11, 2021

I have been listening to Hatebreed closely for a few years now. Their most recent album, The Weight of the False Self, had a big impact on me and so they were one of the bands I was most looking forward to seeing at the festival.

10 Years’ modern rock take on heavy music is always a winner in the live forum. Violent Allies is the place to start listening if you are new to their music.
