OK, so I have been at my firewalker retreat and have totally let everyone down on keeping up to date on the great things the world of metal has given us. Here in Texas, we just regurgitated another SXSW onto unsuspecting music industry types. Riots. Beer. Probably a couple of lucky people out there got to witness Agalloch, Pentagram and St. Vitus. Records have been uploaded and downloaded from Brooklyn to here to Iceland.
I had a couple of cool gigs come thru my part of this whacked out state and will share some of my experience with you a little later. In the meantime:
Listening: Owen Hart-Owen Hart// Melvins- the Maggot// Isis- the Absence of Truth//Jesus Lizard- Goat// Fugazi-Repeater
Watched: Until the Light Takes Us and a bunch of Bourdain’s No Reservations
and I had Pho for the first time. Not bad.
