While we did not manage to make it out to both days of Forever Deaf Fest, I assume we may have been paying for hearing aids had we gone to day two as well. This was the debut Forever Deaf Fest hosted by the intimate and beloved hole-in-the-wall Beat Kitchen of Chicago. Though that may sound snarky, some of the best metal shows I have seen have been at Beat Kitchen and venues similar to it. We picked up a few killer draft beers and wiggled our way through the crowd like Ace Ventura at a Cannibal Corpse show. Unfortunately, we literally walked in as Bloodletter was getting off the stage.
