Lillian Axe/ Streetlight Circus/ Wrecking Crew @ Empire 6/28/2013

I went to see Lillian Axe at Empire last night. I only was familiar with a couple songs, but it was mostly a 'blind' show for me. It was a long week at work and about a week since my last show (longer if you only include heavy shows), so I figured for $15, they'd probably be alright. I saw Neil and Michelle there... and met a few people as well~

Zac Brown Band @ Merriweather Post Pavilion 6/22/2013

Andrew, Bret, and I went to see Zac Brown and his band at Merriweather Post Pavilion with about 19,000 other people. I always seem to forget how popular these country shows are- white people as far as the eye could see!  (Yes, I do go to some non metal shows)

Lamb of God/ Decapitated/ The Acacia Strain @ Rams Head Live 6/19/2013

We went to see Lamb of God up at Ram's Head Live. We also wanted to make sure we saw Decapitated (who we had thought were on first), so we got there a little early. We saw Scott and maybe someone else there!

Alice Cooper/ Marylin Manson/ GWAR @ Merriweather Post Pavilion 6/17/2013

Went to see Alice Cooper w/ John and Kate. Met up with Shabba n Michelle, Bobbie and her dude, Tom, and even Ms. Lindsey and Zach! So many people! I was convinced to get some pit tickets ($80), which were about double the lawn. I was a bit hesitant, mainly cause I am not a Manson fan- but Alice is always great.

Killswitch Engage/ Miss May I/ Darkest Hour @ The Fillmore, Silver Spring 6/12/2013

We went to see Killswitch Engage at the Fillmore, and met up with Tony and a couple of his buddies. We saw Scott and Dorothy there as well! This was not a sold out show, but pretty damn close. I love Killswitch- they are one of the few metalcore bands that I really dig, but their choice of tourmates IMO was.... lacking. Note that some bands replaced As I Lay Dying, due to Tim Lambesis' ... recent legal troubles... forcing them to drop off the tour. I would have been fine with Shadows Fall instead....

We went to see A Sound of Thunder's album release show for their just released "Time's Arrow."
Saw Bobbie, Dave, Sako + Greg, Neil + Michelle (and their brood), Matt, Zachary, Ray, and Heavy Metal Chris! Great company!

Project Pitchfork/ Ayria/ Spider Lillies @ Empire 6/2/2013

Went with John and Kate to see goth/electronic/industrial/whatever group Project Pitchfork ($20).  I was only somewhat familiar with Project Pitchfork ("Timekiller"), and not much or other with the others, but I've def been pleasantly surprised at these electronic shows before. There was some horrible on and off rain, and that kind of set the mood a little...darker. There were a good amount of people there, a lot of the same people from the Night Shift event the previous week- Joanna, Dar K Ness, most of Ego Likeness, among others.
