About

S.C.U.M. is a collective project by Santa Cruz Underground Metal bands to energize and bring together the metal community in Santa Cruz County in two parts: (1) the "S.C.U.M. Vol.1: Dark Side of the Cross" Compilation CD, featuring 10 local bands, which we will distribute for FREE at local stores like Street Light Records, Game Stop, and Hot Topic, to name a few, and (2) S.C.U.M. Fest 2010--a totally FREE metal music festival and release party for the CD, taking place on a private property in Watsonville, CA on June 19th, 2010. S.C.U.M. Fest features 9 out of 10 bands on the CD, plus other SC County bands and a few regional bands from Sacrament and the Bay Area, for a total of 22!

Everything is being provided or built by the bands and their friends for the fans. For example, the compilation bands paid $200 each to have Kevin Lemon of Slow Roasted Recording roll his mobile unit into their rehearsal space and record their song and help pay for the duplication of the cds. Each band participating in S.C.U.M. Fest contributed a little money for stage-building materials, and will contribute equipment and labor to running the festival.

All of this is a conscious effort to build the metal scene to a point that we can start attracting national and international touring acts to playing in Santa Cruz. That way, our local bands get more opportunity to share the stage with top-tier acts and thereby strengthen their own acts. Also, I'd personally really like to NOT have to drive to San Francisco every time a band I'd like to see goes on tour, and I know many other metal-heads in Santa Cruz share that sentiment!

If you'd like to help support the bands and the fans of Santa Cruz Underground Metal, then make a pledge for as little as $1. Every little bit helps, so go for it!

Thanks to everyone who has supported and who continue to support independent music in our community!
