GOING LIVE: UPROAR Festival 2011

PROTEST THE HERO, AVENGED SEVENFOLD
MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE, TORONTO / SEPT. 15

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK UPROAR FESTIVAL. Though the name and a few of the acts on the bill (see SEETHER, THREE DAYS GRACE, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) make the festival sound like a hard rock creation gone wrong, the tour itself drew a rather large crowd at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto and in turn, delivered a few captivating performances. Contrary to belief, groups such as PROTEST THE HERO, ESCAPE THE FATE and AVENGED SEVENFOLD exhibited their brand of metal, melting ears with chord riffage, piercing vocals and breakdowns that made preconceived opinions about UPROAR Festival look.. well, rather childish.
