Since joining SLUG in March 2011, Megan Kennedy has become our resident metal maven and queen of all things geeky. Despite covering gnarly metal icons such as Opeth and Red Fang, Megan is one of the friendliest darkhearts we have ever had the pleasure of working with. In her time at SLUG, she has interviewed notable locals such as Cornered by Zombies and Gaza, and covered the Mayhem Festival as a writer and photographer in 2011 and 2012. She even managed to score a last-minute interview with As I Lay Dying at the 2012 fest, likely because of her kvlt charm. Megan has also channeled her energy into a budding career as an artist with her project, Abuse of Reason Art and Photography, which will be featured in this year’s Craft Lake City’s DIY Festival as well as the Urban Arts Festival. She is also a talented author, recently publishing the digital novella, Bury Me In Smoke, and will be featured in an upcoming anthology published by Horror Novel Reviews. Megan always goes above and beyond, and we are proud to count her among our local army of minions.
