Two very different upcoming shows, but both are worth noting.
Unearthly Trance, Racebannon, Coffinworm
A night of intoxicating frequencies, visuals, and drinks. This is where they put metal!
Wednesday, Feb. 27th 2008
Zanies Too – 5914 E. 10th Street, Indianapolis, IN
Cost: $6 / Time: 8 pm (for real)
Unearthly Trance (Relapse Records) – Blackened sludge/doom from NYC. Hands down one of the best bands to ever spring from the loins of slow and heavy. They keeps it real. http://www.myspace.com/utny
Racebannon (Southern Records) – Bloomington-based, long-time riff rulers. Like the Deathstar, yet indestructible. Chaotic rock meets Black Sabbath. http://www.myspace.com/racebannonrocks
Coffinworm (Indy) – First show. Blackened sludge/doom from members of Black Arrows of Filth & Impurity, Worldeater, and Salvation.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with Steve Winwood – July 3rd at Verizon Wireless Music Center
Tickets go on sale February 4th, right after they play the SuperBowl half-time show! I saw Tom Petty last summer and it was one of the best shows I have seen. The quintessential rock show.
