Another edition of Bucketfest was amongst us and boy was it a messy one. And we mean that in a good way.

Bucketlist boss lady, Liz Imperiale has a few words:

“I’d like to say thank you to all the bands, Procyon Lotor, Hellbent, Chemical Way, Voltang, and Indian Handcrafts for coming out for this and celebrating our 6th birthday with us. They all did a solid job not only on this night, but throughout this entire process. I am of course biased, because not only do I love these bands, they have been part of our family for years and supported us tremendously. But I also have gotten lots of amazing positive crowd reactions which makes me even prouder.

Thank you to the Piranha Bar staff, and my minions for helping me out throughout the night; Jason Greenberg for stage managing, Syd Ghan for merch, Michael Kovacs for photos, Eva Perlman for door, and Tony Colgan (CNS Studios) for sound.

I’d especially like to thank everyone who came out. We work hard all year round, and to see those few people we have supported in the scene give a little something back to help keep this project going is an enormous appreciation. We look at that and never forget it.

This is a night not to be forgotten. We had a fucking great time, and I am stoked to see you next year!”
