WOMAN TRIES TO STOP SLIPKNOT SHOW IN UPSTATE NEW YORK

A woman named Susan Balfour is trying to stop the Aggressive Music Festival, scheduled for July 17th and 18th in Glens Falls, New York, according to local news channel Capital News 9. The concert will feature Slipknot, Slayer, Hatebreed, Killswitch Engage, Superjoint Ritual, and other extreme bands. Balfour, who said, "People have no idea what these lyrics are. How powerful they are to young children," is reportedly going around the Glens Falls area, showing people the lyrics of some of the groups, and asking them to sign a petition to have the concert canceled.

Balfour has collected around 300 signatures and plans to present them to city officials. Some residents who signed the petition said that young children shouldn't be attending the show.

Others in the area disagreed, saying that no one is forced to go to the show and that it's up to parents to decide whether their own children attend.

Spokespersons for the Glens Falls Civic Center, where the concert will take place, said the show will go on as planned and that a huge turnout is expected.

Slipknot's new album, titled Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), arrives in stores tomorrow (May 25th).
