Show in Review: The Black Flag Raises at HOB

Black Flag Show Review August 30th, 2019 House of Blues   “I’m gonna use your shoulder for a sec!” a stranger lady mosher yelled at me over the scrambling crowd as she fixed her boot that has been “flat-tired” in the midst of the pit. I kindly posted up to give her something to lean...

Pre-Show Shenanigans After a night of girly face masks , care bear onsies and horror flicks in a cabin up in Big Bear, CA, I ventured back into Vegas with enough time to spruce myself up and change before venturing out to the venue. Upon arrival I parked Ernest in my usual lot behind the...

Show In Review: For the Folk’n Glory of Power Metal

Pre-Show Shenanigans I didn’t really do much before the show that was note worthy.

Show in Review: Devastation of the Nation Tour

Pre-show Shenanigans I spent half the day sleeping off the road trip from Vegas the day before.
