Friends, this already completely bitchin year of live music somehow keeps getting even more amazing. Since my last very brief update, four more outstanding shows have been announced, 3 of which I will absolutely be attending (the other is a very long long shot).
Before I get into that, though, I wanna mention that my virgin Metallica experience is nigh (only 7 more sleeps!), and I’m getting giddy as a schoolboy at a nudie bar. A detailed account of my experience will surely be posted here sometime thereafter, but for now, on with the shows!
First up, the mighty Death Angel is headlining a show in Indianapolis in April the week before their show with Overkill in Louisville! I’m gonna see Death Angel two times in less than 7 days! Holy shit!
Looking into the distance, the relentless touring machine that is D.R.I. will be stopping in Indy again this September, like they do almost every year, but my work situation this year will allow me to finally get back up there and see them, and that is some exciting news. I managed to see them once a few years back, and it was an absolutely killer show. I have no reason to assume that this show will be otherwise.
But the biggest and arguably most exciting news just came along this morning: motherfucking Sacred Reich added a headlining show in Indianapolis in May! I’M FINALLY GONNA SEE SACRED MOTHERFUCKING REICH LIVE! I sincerely don’t think I could be more excited about this one. Plus (PLUS!), it comes 5 days after The Mountain Goats show in Bloomington and 2 days before the EyeHateGod show in Indianapolis! Holy week of kickass live music, Batman!
As for the very long long shot, this year’s Full Terror Assault in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois added the newly re-formed Vio-Lence to the lineup, but I’m not likely to be in attendance for that one, as it falls very close to Mrs. Stay Heavy’s birthday, and camping and attending a metal festival is not on her birthday wishlist. However, the news that the band is playing shows again is encouraging, so I may still get a chance to see them someday. For now, that’s good enough.
And speaking of good enough for now, I think this post is. Thanks for reading, and stay heavy, friends.
