Matt O'Brien of SentinelandEnterprise.com reports that over 15,000 rock fans crowded the Fitchburg Municipal Airport Sunday (September 28) for Locobazooka, an all-day festival featuring performances by STAIND, SEVENDUST, and Italy's LACUNA COIL, among others.

Seventeen-year-old Nick Peluso of Blackstone arrived at the airport at 7:45 a.m, over two hours before the concert began.
Locobazooka promoter John Carnegie, of 3-D Entertainment, boasted that concertgoers like Peluso who arrived from across New England on Sunday helped "take Fitchburg out of the entertainment blackhole and put it back on the map."
Peluso was one of thousands who lined up for the loud heavy metal show before the doors opened, avoiding the burgeoning traffic snarls that later left festivalgoers moving through stop-and-go traffic on Airport Road and beyond. Read more.
