After a full first day of Bumbershoot, it’s hard to believe we aren’t even halfway through the weekend yet. But with the new day and a few cups of caffeine, we’re ready for another day jam-packed with great music. We’re thrilled (and we’re sure Seattle Rock Guy is, too) that today features a handful of some great metal bands. Early afternoon isn’t when we usually listen to metal music, but when in Rome.
