Welcome to Ryan's Rock n' Roll Reviews where it is my sole priority to provide you with honest helpful reviews on venues that host rock shows. I will thoroughly review the largest of concerts to the smallest hole in the walls hosting locals and grade each on a unique scale. Our number one goal is to spread information on experiences at venues, so everyone can have a positive experience when going to see live music. ▪ Please follow my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RyansRocknRollReviews/ ▪ & Youtube: link in bio ▪ Watch The Machine Shop Review on my YouTube channel. ▪ #rock #rocknroll #pun#punk #punk #music #concert #rockandroll #guitar #metal #mxpx #rockout #concertreview #review #follow #ryansrocknrollreviews #metalhead #rocker #exitinn #louisville #nashville #metallica #nirvana #alternative #musician #drums #instamusician #machineshop #fli#flintmichigan #flint #themachineshop

#throwback to one of my overall best looks, I think, at the #arnoldclassic in 2017. Definitely not stage condition, but very aesthetic in my opinion. Now only if I could walk around like that 24/7. . #bodybuilding #tbt #throwbackthursday #aesthetic #abs #flex #beastmode #shredded #gains #crushit #502wreckingcrew #louisville #selfie #gymselfie #mirrorselfie #positivevibes
