Bands like Swallow the Sun, Ihsahn, and Enslaved are heavy as hell – the synth is a great addition. Thursday, March 3rd: Motorhead at Starland Ballroom. What band or musician would you have loved tour with from the past & why?
While the tradition is to exchange gold rings at a wedding, black titanium wedding bands for men have been making a real splash these days. The metal rings are ideal for the groom who prefers to go with something classier and less flashy than gold. Previously, platinum was the unique metal chosen, but now, titanium is the way to go.
Fred clutched the case to his sunken chest, but Mr. Grimes pulled it away. When he opened it, the shattered remains of Fred’s clarinet tumbled to the cement floor.
I might not have even become aware of the band, had I not previously been acquainted with its keyboard player, Rhiannon Wisniewski, who was an integral component to the now-defunct, Cleveland-based underground black metal band Somnus.
Fallon Bowman: Nirvana. Just to meet KC would be mind numbingly awesome. His songwriting blows my mind sometimes, simple, yet totally weird. They were the band that made me want to be a musician. Along with Hole, funnily enough.
Saturday, March 26th: Tribute Wars XXXVIII at Mercury Lounge. Tool tribute Schism will be teaming up once again with Alice in Chains tribute Facelift for a night of each band’s best songs, played with eerie accuracy. Check out my review of Tribute Wars XXXVII in December here for an idea of what to expect.
Friday, March 25th: Queens of the Stone Age at Terminal 5: The desert rock band has been awfully quiet for a few years, with side projects and rumors of a new record coming and going, and suddenly this tour came out of nowhere. Naturally the 5,000 capacity T5 sold out almost instantly, and right now tickets will cost you upwards of $100 on the secondary market. That said, keeping an eye on Stubhub might show tickets trending downwards a couple of days before the show, so vigilance is key if you want to get in at a fair price.
These sites are cool because they don’t just offer swords, but they offer other things you enthusiasts might be interested as well such as helmets, axes, shields, and daggers! I’m actually really partial to the official helmet and shield from Gladiator myself, but whatever you like, they probably have! And the prices are as aforementioned are seriously ridiculous!
