06:35 - Fearmeister Aw shit, that sucks. I got in like, 5 mins before the show started.
06:34 - MetalDoomMaster Drove 11 hours there and back to see it too haha. At least now I know for next time I guess.
06:32 - MetalDoomMaster I'm a fucking retard. I was staying with a friend in Merrillville and neither of us knew it was in a different time zone even though it was in the same state, so we missed the first hour of the show. Just saw the last Aeon song.
