Aftershock: A Love Story for 19,000 Rock and Metal Fans

Aftershock: A Love Story for 19,000 Rock and Metal Fans

Discovery Park, Sacramento - The heat was stifling and the dust was enough to make any contact-wearer’s eyes flood. Dirt caked the ripped jean vests and sweaty faces of the crowd; regardless of the drought driven conditions, over 19,000 people flocked to Sacramento’s Discovery Park this weekend to thrash, mosh, and headbang to genre and decade-spanning rock.

I made my way to my first show of Saturday: Pepper. It was a classic Sacramento Summer day. The heat accompanying the blend of rock and reggae, with that wonderful ground-shaking bass in full effect and felt full-force from even the very back of the crowd.
