Loudwire Live was an absolute blast and there was so much going on inside the gates even before they were open to the public. Take a look at the Genesee County Fairgrounds just before the party started.

Loudwire Live turned out to be quite the party! In addition to killer performances from Rob Zombie, Theory of a Deadman, Devour the Day, Art of Dying and Citizen Zero -- there was so much awesomeness that we didn't even expect! There was zombie paintball, badass tacos, fire-breathing chicks, 8-foot-tall clowns with chainsaws... there was just a lot to take in. Good thing we snapped a bunch of pics before 6,000 people flooded the E.A. Cummings Center.
