Brent Porche

Afternoons 3PM - 7PM

Our very own Brent Porche went to Rise Above Fest to sit stage side for amazing bands like Korn, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Seether, Halestorm, and many more. Let us take a journey for the full recap of a rockin’ weekend, bringing you Complete Concert Coverage all the way from Bangor, Maine!

First stop was to see Skillet rock the Main Stage…

Then came front row for Seether

Then to finish the night, Korn and Stone Sour, who recently played together at the BB&T on 7/26!

Brent saw local boy Christian Martucci on the vibrant stage filled with wacky-wavy-inflatable-tube-dudes!


Day two of the Rise Above Fest started with Hellyeah!

Chad Grey definitely wins outfit of the festival with his trademark blood-stained ensemble. Vinnie Paul is also in the running for coolest kit.

Brent got to snap a photo with Dustin Bates of Starset before they went on. Directly following them was All That Remains.

Theory of a Deadman went on at 6:30, followed by Halestorm on the main stage at 7:35! But before they went on stage they each had time to catch up with Brent!!

If you thought Brent couldn’t get any closer to the action… think again–

And finally, to cap off the entire festival, there was the always-amazing Shinedown from stage side.
