Safety of our community is our highest priority
These are obviously not ordinary times. 2020 has seen cancellations of major US festivals like Psycho Las Vegas, and Maryland Deathfest. Hospitalizations and deaths in the US continue to climb. Regulations seem to change from week-to-week, regarding nearly all facets of our public life. Metal Swap Meet has always been about the metal community. We want our attendees, vendors, staff, and bands to have a great experience, and to be safe. The thought of any of our metal family getting sick, or worse, is terrifying. We have decided to cancel the Metal Swap Meet for 2020. Your continued support is so inspiring. We plan to have the next Metal Swap Meet in October 2021. We really appreciate the support from our hosts Setting Sun Sake. Please support them in this time of need by ordering some sake online. We hope to be back at their location for the next one!
Many of our vendors rely on the Metal Swap Meet for income, and if you are a vendor, and would like a mention on our social media platforms, contact us. If you would like to support our vendors, buy from them online. If you don’t remember who they are, feel free to contact us, and we will try to track down their information for you.
Metal Killing Hunger
In more positive news, we have teamed up with Norm Leggio (Psychotic Waltz, Nukem), who was owner of Blue Meannie Records, and have been auctioning off some rare metal merch on our Facebook page. All proceeds go to San Diego Food Bank. We have had so many generous bidders, and there are still more to come.
Speaking of Facebook, we have been live streaming metal trivia on about a bi-weekly basis. Come hang out with Brian, Israel, Vince and Luis, as we try to stump your metal knowledge. We respond to your comments, and it’s just a fun time in general. We tend to do it every other Thursday. Check your local listings on our page.
