Scream-OH Fest coming to Elyria

A festival full of emotive hard-core, or emo, music will make its way to Elyria on Aug. 7 for the city’s first ever Scream-OH Fest.

Nine bands from across the country will play from 6 to 11 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 300 3rd St.

Scream-OH Fest will feature acts that are the best and brightest for a single night, according to Eddy Marflak, co-founder and chief booking coordinator of music and arts venue for Blank Slate Elyria.

The acts include Shizune, Lytic, Hundreds of AU, Coma Regalia, Worst Days, V-Trigger, Indisposed, Sonnets and Frail Body.

Blank Slate has brought a wide-variety of art and musical acts to downtown Elyria through its venue on Kerstetter Way since opening in 2016.

Admission to attend Scream-OH Fest is $12.

Funds raised will go toward keeping the touring bands on the road, with a small portion going to St. Andrew’s and Blank Slate, Marflak said.
