I have decided to expand my blog to whats happening in the metal world as a whole. however i will only post events happening with local Minnesota bands and venues.
Now on to the latest news.
British metal band “Asking Alexandria” has been nominated for best uk metal among others like Young Gun, Bring Me The Horizon, You Me At Six, and Enter Shikari. you can vote for your favorite at http://awards.kerrang.com/ .
in other news “As I Lay Dying” frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested for allegedly propositioning an undercover detective to kill his wife. there are no further details yet but the band will keep updating the status of his legal process as it continues to unfold.
We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
Counter Measure, an up and coming band from our own backyard is playing at the Epic Event Center, located at 110 N 5th St Minneapolis, MN on may 12th 2013. Also playing with them is Asking Alexandria, White Chapel (God yes), Motionless in White, Chimaira, and I killed the Prom Queen. Wow what a set, I would hate to miss this “Epic” Show. Doors are at 5pm and it is an all ages show so come out and show some love for our local bands along with everyone else playing that night. Tickets may be found at http://www.leopresents.com and the Epic box office and are 25 bucks, but definitely worth the money for these bands put on one hell of a show. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing a few of these bands perform and i would definitely recommend going out there. Any questions or comments, feel free to post.
Now i know this isn’t a local band, but c’mon, who doesn’t like Bush? They will be playing at First Ave on may 22nd 2013. there are 3 packages to choose from which can be found here. The prices are pretty steep but the experience is worth every penny spent as you will have access to crowd free merch shopping, early entry to show, photo op with the band, and more. tickets are already on sale so get them while you can.
