Bloodlet, Sinister Purpose, Unmaker – Free at Champion RVA

BLOODLET (Orlando metal/hc vets w/ original lineup!)

Thursday May 24th, 2018
@ Champion Brewery RVA
6PM Doors // 7PM Sounds

On the final FREE THURSDAY Music Series (at least until Fall), Champion Brewing Company RVA had to do it big as a humble thank you to those who have supported while we built up the room enough to host national talent. For this one we have Orlando metallic-hardcore/sludge veterans BLOODLET headlining with their ORIGINAL LINEUP! They put out four of the genre’s most diverse pioneering LPs between 1992-2002 covering grounds from goth to punk hardcore to sludge to experimental soundscapes and truly pushed the sound to levels it’d never been before. They’ll be accompanied by two RVA rulers who have also yet to play here including the rock and roll hardcore annihilation of SINISTER PURPOSE and the crushing-yet-soothing post-punk of UNMAKER!!

The rumors are true! After honing our sound and events in HARD since the end of last summer, Champion Brewing Company RVA will be stepping back from the FREE Thursday series for the summer. While there are plans to come back to doing them more after the vacation, the format may change BUT in the interim we’ll still host events put on by other local creatives and continue to support live music and VA music particularly. That said, we ain’t going nowhere and look forward to several Summer bookings, they just won’t be weekly or free. Thanks for the love for the 8 months of the series and stay tuned for the May 11th and 17th editions to be announced any day now!
