Festivals!: Border Assault 2020- Laredo, TX USA

Metal Festival season is in full swing. Although it seems as of late that there is less of a season and more of a year-round celebration of brutality if you know where to look domestically and abroad. With that said, I wanted to highlight Border Assault 2020 as it is the first year that Rick...

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: Metal Mosh & Melee take over FCC

PRE-SHOW SHENANIGANS It was a late night at In Flames,  we passed out around 230 am and didn’t start the day until about 11 running errands, sacrificing veggies to the circle piggies (my personal all Guinea Pig Slayer Tribute band) before making some bomb ass french toast. I wrapped up my In Flames Review from...

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: Naked City Collective Closes

This year has brought interesting avenues for entertainment to Vegas. While Raider stadium was being built up, other venues of a different breed began sprouting up like the weeds that conservative, law-abiding society tries to yank out. I speak of course of Naked City Collective, Vegas’s local warehouse venue that stood as an underground oasis...

Show In Review: Amon Amarth Goes Berserk at HoB Las Vegas

Pre-Show Shenanigans I could not contain my excitement while I was at my office. I was ecstatic to be meeting Amon Amarth in a mere matter of hours. My focus on other things was there but the 1.5 liter drinking horn I had purchased specifically for them to sign was sitting on my desk staring...

Show in Review: Kobra and The Lotus

Pre-Show Shenanigans While everyone else was at Black Veil Brides I wanted to show my support for the local bands and see Kobra & The Lotus at least one more time. Before the show it was work work work work work (yeah …get that Rhianna song stuck in your head…or whoever sings it). I went...

Show In Review: Despised Icon Invades Fremont Street

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: The Black Dahlia Murdered FCC

Pre-show Shenanigans My morning started with breakfast at Egg Works before heading across town to my favorite used book store (Dragon Castle Books) to pick up some Tolkein and Classic Literature gems. I can’t be allowed alone in book stores because I will buy so many books its not even funny. I left with a...

Show In Review: GOJIRA takes over HoB Las Vegas

No pre-show shenanigans this time around… The Venue Much like the Static X show a few days before I got to the House of Blues early to stand in line with the masses. I spotted a person I knew from a local band and chatted him up while we waited for them to allow people...
