Since then, the secret arts of crafting swords have been passed down from generation to generation. Both shows are sold out, but tickets are selling on Stubhub and broker sites for about face values + fees.
On April 1, Albuquerque’s own Launchpad presents The Casualties, Goatwhore, and Havok. Doors for this all-ages show open at 7 p.m., with the first band taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. Entry is only $15 but is subject to change at the door.
Wednesday, March 23rd: Volbeat at Irving Plaza. The Danish-based Volbeat has slowly but surely worked their way up the hard rock ladder, culminating in an opening slot on a Metallica tour a few years ago. The tiny Irving Plaza will be a great place to see this band up and close.
Allison Bender would then make her graceful exit without any acknowledgement of Fred’s existence, and then IT would begin: THE lesson with Mr. Grimes.
“Come on, kid, everybody’s been waiting for your big debut. Haven’t you all?” Sol Grosse waved his drink at his drinking buddies and they all raised their drinks in hearty agreement.
No, he decided at that tender age, he would have to play the licorice stick like that Mensch Benny Goodman in order to finally get a word of praise from his tireless father, the exalted Solomon “Sol” Grosse.
When I listen to Moth and Somnus back-to-back I would not say Somnus sounds any heavier at all; in fact it might be the other way around. It’s tough and probably unnecessary to compare these two bands. I have always been very open to music outside death, doom and black metal though. I dig jazz fusion, new wave, classic rock, prog, some power metal, etc.
The great William King “tickled his stick” with amazing expression and breath control, and, of course, flawless embouchure, and Fred was so moved and inspired that when Mssrs. King, Peshlakai, and Auler played their final notes, he lept to his feet at once and led a sustained and heartfelt standing ovation.
The metal cruise promoters have Moth CDs (I was passing them out all over those ships) and one of the people working there even likes us a lot, but I believe that most if not all of the bands who get asked to do those cruises are under professional band management. I don’t even know if self-managed bands can get on a cruise, but we’d LOVE to do it, I can tell you that! I’m certainly doing what I can to look into it if it is even possible!!!
