An all metal January?

January is practically all metal, honoring the gloomy spirit of winter.

Starting off the new year in a new space. Since I am always interested in moving shows around, please be sure to check out the new DIY/Gallery space, QUEEN CITY HALL (adjacent to Queen City Tattoos) which is letting us host this four-band epic crust-metal bill there at the very beginning of January 2012.

This is super far away, but who cares it will be memorable. An early evening winter-time show with New Orleans’ THOU and Providence’s The BODY in the BOWLING ALLEY of Sons of Hermann Hall. This will be their final night on tour together. THOU came through at Good Records earlier this year and The BODY played Bro Fest 2011 and at Bryan St. Tavern in September with Braveyoung and Cough.
