Some of the biggest names in Heavy Metal music brought 50,000 people to the sixth annual Aftershock Music Festival in Sacramento. A cold front moved through the region days before the event began, blowing away the smokey skies that had engulfed Sacramento from the devastating fires in the nearby wine country. The cold front gave way to nearly perfect weather for the two-day festival, with warm sunny days and cool nights prevailing.
