Don Jamieson inked a deal with legendary metal label Metal Blade Records to release the comedian’s debut stand-up album titled “Live and Hilarious.” The nineteen track effort was recorded during Don’s performance at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como, NJ on January 30. When asked about why he chose Jersey as the location for his performance for the upcoming stand-up album, Don had this to say; “I’m a Jersey boy and there’s nowhere better to record my first ever live comedy CD than good old Dirty Jerz! Malls, mullets and metal!!”

Another year, another Cali Metalfest. This years event took place at the Grove in Anaheim. Pretty swell venue.

We arrived early for set up and to check out the digs and spotted a pretty killer line before doors!

The main stage set up was legit. Tons of room for thrashin’ and mashin’. Check the Indie banners!

Our booth! Great spot near the entrance to mainstage so we could people watch all day and watch all the drunk kids run to the bathroom. Kevin is hard at work!

The IndieMerch giveaway tee! If you mentioned twitter/facebook, bought two tees at the booth, or were an all around badass, you got hooked up with one of these limited edition beauties. Designed by Dan Mumford!

Black Dahlia Murder tee! One of the hottest sellers of the day.

Darkest Hour tee! This dude picked it up at their booth before they shredded faces.

Check out this insane Between The Buried And Me tattoo! This dude was amped on their new album. He preordered it and you can as well RIGHT HERE!

Huge Despised Icon fan! This dude ruled and repped this band hard. Thanks for stopping by!

Halfway through the day. The main hall was filling up fast with metalheads and creepers!

Party animal surpreme! This dude and his friends were ragin’ hard with their IndieMerch cups!

Darkest Hour straight ripping the threads of space and time. SO many kids watching their set and head banging. Definitely one of the highlights of the day.

Last but not least, a sweet collage of a few of the lucky kids who received the free IndieMerch tee. Thanks heaps for your support. It pays to shop with IndieMerch!

Big thanks to Noah, Andy, and the Metalfest crew for having us, Darkest Hour, Metal Blade, Hot Topic, Detox, Division Divide, ESP guitars, and the Novelli Creation crews for hanging out at the booth with us. You guys rule. Thanks to everyone else who stopped by, bought a shirt, or snagged some of our free promo items. See you next year!
