15 years ago at the Hoedown Center in Richland WA the very first Metalwolf Festival took place. Here is some video taken of the band Juba playing at Metalwolf in 2001.
Metalwolf ran 4 years in a row until the last festival happened at 321 Art Space in 2004. This year after a 12 year hiatus Funkytonk is excited to bring back the Metalwolf Festival for it’s 5th installment in the Tri Cities. There will be around 30 bands, art, independent films and a punk yard sale/swap meet. Noon to midnight each day. Meet us at the park, bring your swimming gear and the family. Tickets are name your own price so if you are low on dough than just come anyways. We have set this up so everyone feels welcome. Check out the official Metalwolf page for the schedule and lineup of events and bands and make sure and join us on the facebook event page. See you all there.

And before I forget…make sure and tune into 88.1 KTCV FM every Saturday at 10am and Sunday at 10pm to catch my new radio show called Community Music Pack where I feature 10 homemade songs by artists and bands that maybe you have never heard of. Maybe you have… but still worth checking out as I feel that this music is definitely not available on the airwaves anywhere else in the Tri-Cities.
