Speedbump Fest

When: Sat., March 5 2016

Jaclyn Wright, the organizer of Speedbump Fest, a memorial concert to friend Garrett Janos, a suicide victim, says she would like to think of the event as “aimed at not only celebrating his life but also building trust and an openness to our community.” “We have done some fundraising and my hope is that this will grow into a larger event in the years to come and continue to honor Garrett,” she says in a press release. She’s recruited six punk rock and metal bands, including Rhomer, Rabid Reason, Nullum, Smash N Grab, FYPM and Feral Children, to perform. The event starts at 9 p.m. at Annabell’s in Akron. Tickets are $5. (Niesel)
