The Lakewood metal club the Foundry has just announced the lineup for the Big Show 2016
, an annual concert that features 20 bands and a slew of vendors. The show takes place on April 23. The big news: local hardcore heroes Run Devil Run will play what the promoters say will be the band's first local concert since 2002. That's 14 long years.
Fronted by Don Foose, Run Devil Run built a reputation based on fierce live performances at places like the Agora and the now-shuttered Peabody's Down Under.
Other acts on the bill include the Eddie Leeway Show, Lifeless, Drowning, Homewrecker, Steel Nation and more. Bands will perform at both the Foundry and at the Symposium Niteclub. The merch and vendor marketplace will open at noon; doors for the show open at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
