Oh, another show I am hopefully going to attend: The Appleseed Cast is playing in Danbury, Conneticut.

I'd hope to see some of you Conn. goons that like them out there.

I haven't listened to Sea Wolf, but Death Cab and Rogue Wave are amazing bands. Goddamn, you are lucky.

their LP is pretty hard to come by, but i think its worth a listen.

fits in very nicely with the rest of the line up.

I just downloaded Get To the River Before It Runs Too Low. It's pretty good.

Chicks always fall for Death Cab or Modest Mouse tickets.

Truth.

so i missed Symphony X last night because it was sold out, but it's just as well considering Genghis Tron and Baroness put on the best fucking show i've ever seen. the boys in Tron bought themselves some seven foot tall vertical lights like the ones in that Battles video and synched them up with the music. it was so badass; i'd been wondering how they were going to pull off the long electronic parts from Board up the House and they did it all perfectly. Mookie even got himself a keyboard this time around instead of playing his Mac

Baroness were totally everything a rock band should aspire to be. tons of energy, tons of showmanship, and i don't know if it's because Genghis Tron are little dudes or what but all the guys in Baroness looked GIGANTIC. the drummer had the sparsest kit i've seen at a metal show, but you'd NEVER know. dude put on the best show of the night

the Red Chord were a travesty. i can't believe they played after ^ AND that they got to play for like an hour

we stuck around for Converge because my friend is really into them and they put on a super good show. the vocalist has so much positive energy i almost didn't care that every verse contained like three gigantic shouts

so Genghis Tron and Baroness are THE bands to see, separately or together. can't wait until they headline their own shows

Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, Testament and Motorhead touring together in 2008. I must see them, it will be 3rd time priest and 2nd for Heaven and Hell. First for the others... That is if I go.

I actually found out about it on that facebook application.

From Dio's official myspace page.

"After weeks of speculation, Live Nation has put together a killer package that is bound to go down as the heavy metal event of 2008 - Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, Motorhead, and Testament will be touring together for the first time.

Dubbed 'The Metal Masters Tour,' the sixteen date U.S. trek kicks off August 6th at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey.

Judas Priest will be supporting their epic concept album, 'Nostradamus,' which will arrive on June 17th via Epic Records, and tells the tale of the renowned 16th century prophet. A few tracks from 'Nostradamus' will make their in-concert debut on 'The Metal Masters Tour,' but the majority of Priest's set list will include some of metal's all-time classics, as well as fan favorites that span the quintet's entire career. Without a doubt, this will be one of Priest's most powerful sets ever. As a 'sneak peak treat' to fans starved for a musical taster, the first cut off the new album will make its world premiere debut as exclusive free MP3 download starting today exclusively at www.livenation.com/judaspriest.

Heaven & Hell will be supporting the release of The Rules Of Hell, a five-CD boxed set available on July 22nd from Rhino Records which features re-mastered versions of all four Dio-era Black Sabbath albums ('Heaven and Hell,' 'Mob Rules,' 'Live Evil,' and 'Dehumanizer') in a deluxe package with new liner notes.

Perennial road rats Motorhead will be touring strictly for the love of it, offering a fan favorites set spanning more than three decades worth of molar-rattling metal. Motorhead's last album was 2006's 'Kiss of Death' (released via Sanctuary Records), their 19th studio set of their long and highly influential career. A new album is currently in the works as well, which is currently being recorded at their old pal Dave Grohl's studio with a August release date targeted. Lemmy blairs out, "Here it comes everybody, the test of your Metalness in 2008 and the years to come! Come one come all and be abused!"

Rounding out the line-up will be legendary thrash metal titans Testament, whose new album, 'The Formation of Damnation,' (April 29th,) displays Testament as the quintessential modern heavy metal band, whose experience and accumulated skill allows them to attack with reserves of anger, energy and finesse that make them more powerful than ever. Lead singer Chuck Billy says, "Uniting these bands is the heavy metal event of generations. We are so proud to be a part of it."

Although all four bands may represent different subgenres of heavy metal, all four have one thing in common – they have stuck to their stylistic guns through thick and thin, and have remained true to the metal form. And soon, band and fan will be united as one on 'The Metal Masters Tour.'

"As ever, we look forward to screaming out loud with our metal maniac fans when we hit the road," enthuses Priest singer, Rob Halford. "Thank you once again for your devotion and support. The Priest is back!"

This tour will be limited to fifteen very special engagements, and Citi cardmembers will have pre-sale access to tickets through Citi's Private Pass® Program, available to all Citi cardmembers at www.privatepass.citi.com.

Thursday night I saw MUNICIPAL WASTE in this place called the Ottobar in Baltimore. Now the venue is pretty grimy and is in the ghetto. Which made it that much cooler.

Waste had this epic pit, some guy brought a boogie board, and there were hot girls throwing down with the best of them. Pretty amazing time.

Summary: If you don't see WASTE you fail.

I saw an awesome show last night. It was a local noise-rock band with an amazing drummer and an awesome keyboard player who made fucked up sounds with his laptop, too. These two thirds of the band were incredible.

And then there was the guitar player, who, in addition to lacking any sort of skill with feedback manipulation, was completely plastered. He totally sucked, I wanted to go up and play guitar for them...
