Rebreather, Lo-Pan, Vulture, The Ravenna Arsenal and More Playing Blackout Cookout IV

Generally notable for its sick lineup culling together some of Ohio’s best in heavy from the rarely-seen Rebreather on through Mockingbird and Venomin James, the roster of acts for The Blackout Cookout IV gains even more traction for being one of the last shows Pittsburgh’s Vulture will play prior to their recently-announced disbanding. Between that and reported bevvy of smoked meats, it doesn’t seem like there’s really any way to lose out. Blackout Cookout IV is set for Aug. 24 at The Outpost in Kent, Ohio.

The PR wire sends urgings:

Here we go again! It’s time for another drunken summer bash at The Outpost. We have some new comers to the lineup this year along with some bands returning to fuck shit up once again. Aaron Schultz (Schultzs Smokin Pit) will be BBQing a ton of food for all of us to eat. Presale entry is available at for $10.00 or at the door day of show for $13.00. You do not want to miss this show. Good times will be had by all. Get to the Post!!!

On August 24th in Kent, OH we will be throwing The Blackout Cookout IV. It is a party at The Outpost that has grown every year since its creation. Last year we had KEELHAUL and LO-PAN, VULTURE, and many other great sludge and doom bands.

This year we have LO-PAN returning along with REBREATHER, MOCKINGBIRD, THE UNCLEAN, THE RAVENNA ARSENAL, and VULTURE! What makes this year special is it is the first of VULTURE’s last two shows ever.

Schultzs Smokin Pit smokes meat all day to eat and 12 bands will be alternating on 2 stages. This year’s lineup is…LYCOSA, SUPER PREDATOR, SHOWBOY, VENOMIN JAMES, FULLY CONSUMED, DEATHCRAWL, VULTURE, THE RAVENNA ARSENAL, THE UNCLEAN, MOCKINGBIRD, LO-PAN, and REBREATHER.

Anyone from the area or anyone who would like to travel should come check out this great food and music. If not at least help spread the word.
