Faster Pussycat / Loveblast/ Gino's All Stars /Baby Jayne @ Empire 4/24/2015

I went to see Faster Pussycat at Empire ($13), for one of the last shows ever at the venue! Recently, Empire announced that they would be closing in early May. This really is the end of an era, and I'm not sure where all the shows that came there will go- Baltimore? Maybe DC? I met up with Tony, Nathan and Alie, Jen, Kim, Matt Rice, Beth, and Ruby and Julia there.

Shut Up n ROCK

Jack Russell's Great White at Fish Head Cantina 4/11/2015

I went to see Jack Russell's Great White at Fish Head Cantina ($25) in MD. I met up with Ariel, James, Dwayne, and Rod there. I was reading that it was selling out beforehand, which I was thinking was a bit odd and I didn't really believe it. However, I was in for a surprise when I got there!

KIX @ Empire 3/27/2015

I went to see KIX at Empire ($36! perhaps a little more expensive than I would have preferred), for a highly anticipated club show. The last several times they've come around (to Baltimore I think), they've sold out- so I opted for getting a ticket in advance. I met up with Patricia and Tony, Johnny, and Tony Sr.

Firehouse @ Tally Ho Theater 3/13/2015

I went to see hair band Firehouse ($23.58) up in Leesburg at the lovely Tally Ho Theater. I got my ticket pretty far in advance because the last Tally Ho show was a horrible price gouging affair. Blue Oyster Cult had a date scheduled, and I saw the advance price of $35, but wasn't sure if I could make it or not at the time. About 2 weeks before the event, I determined I was going to go, so I checked the website and noticed the price had DOUBLED. I don't think I've ever seen this sort of behaviour at any other venue, so that and missing BOC really left a sour taste in my mouth (they did sell out the venue that night, I heard). In any event I met up with Ariel and Michelle and Neil there.

1349 / Origin / Wolvhammer / Yesterday's Saints @ Empire 2/24/2015

I went to see black metal monsters 1349 ($18.50) and more at Empire. They brought an odd tour package- sludgy Wolvhammer and death metal band Origin to go along with their black metal. I saw a number of people there- Ariel, Nathan and Alie, Sean, Jason, Renae and her dude, Tom, Lindsey n Blake, Kim, Kris, and of course Metal Chris.

The Contortionist / Revocation / Fallujah @ Empire 2/18/2015

I went to see The Contortionist /Revocation at Empire ($15) this week. I had heard good things about Fallujah and The Contortionist, but wasn't sure about Toothgrinder. I was curious as to how Revocation would be compared to previous shows (2012, 2013) where I thought they were a bit lackluster. I did see a few friends there - Ariel, John H, Sean, Ashley,  and Scott.
