Chillicothe, IL (Saturday, August 27th) - BLACK FAST, a metal band hailing from St. Louis, MO with Central Illinois roots, is set to shred Crazy Charley’s Rock n’ Roll Oasis from 8pm - 12am, as they continue their impressive rise and wave-making in the metal music scene. Cost is $5 at the door.

This quad of proficient metal musicians made up of Aaron Akin (guitar/vox), Trevor Johanson (guitar), Ross Burnett (drums), and Ryan Thompson (bass) have been using their collective talents to gain attention from extreme ends of the St. Louis metal spectrum, and have been playing metal the way metal is...Black and Fast.

This event will feature three bands with BLACK FAST as the headlining act. The opening acts will be (TBD) and Secret of the Seven Thunders (Pekin, IL).

BLACK FAST has been referred to as “Iron Maiden waking from a twenty-year hibernation and wailing away on Mastodon’s gear.” (R. Wasoba, Rivefront Times). Having played venues of multiple stature, BLACK FAST is thrilled to play the small town of Chillicothe. For drummer Ross Burnett, it brings him back to his hometown where he grew up playing drums, adding sentimental value to this show. BLACK FAST is sure to bring the energy when the hometown crew packs Crazy Charley’s Rock n’ Roll Oasis for a night of music.
