Show in Review: Suicide Silence, Impending Doom, Pathology and More

Pre-Show Shenanigans After waking up from our post show coma from seeing Nile the night before i watched the movies that made us docu-series on netflix and then proceeded to get ready to head out from Vegas. On the way we hit traffic from holiday Vegas visitors to people who simply didn’t know how to...

Show In Review: Slayer of Dreams

Pre-Show Shenanigans I spent my morning grabbing some turkey day needs from Great Buns Bakery before heading home to munch on some fresh pastries and write to kill time before getting ready. Picking where to park was a debate. Taking a Lyft or Uber would cost just as much if not more than the $20+...

Show In Review: Chaos & Carnage Tour

Pre-show Shenanigans After a day full of non-stop napping to recover from Slayer, I made my way to my free hotel breakfast munching on bagels and chugging orange juice like it was nectar from the gods before settling down to sew more patches on my battle vest while watching Star Wars. Not too long after...

Show in Review: Throw Down At The Merrow (San Diego)

Pre-Show Shenanigans I finished cleaning out the back of Ernest to make room for additional passengers before heading out to meet with the band homies from Mynas. After some Google maps mishaps turning me in all the wrong directions fathomable, I was finally retrieved by drummer Mauricio. After which I was able to witness the...
