Anvil at Fubar 2/19/2015

After dwelling in obscurity since 1987, heavy metal band Anvil was brought back into the limelight with the release of the documentary Anvil: The Story of Anvil in 2006. The band has been touring since and made a stop at Fubar on February 19, 2015 with other metal bands Lord Dying and Sunlord.
