Hatebreed Bring 25th Anniversary To Clarksville

Clarksville, TN, sitting around 40 minutes north of Nashville, is known mostly as being a military town as it is home to Fort Campbell. Lately it has been the stop of choice for metal tours, and this time around O’Connor’s Irish Pub was the home for the night for Cane Hill, Hatebreed, and Clutch. While we were only able to photograph Hatebreed this night, we stuck around for a jam packed night of heavy metal.

Three friends in Los Angeles created an iconic event in a small dive bar that has become a full-blown phenomenon among those in the alternative scene.

The Abbey in Downtown Orlando, Florida is a well-known venue with the locals and music enthusiasts alike. The small building gets frequented by bands fairly often but generally hosts small crowds.
