The (unintended) time away flies quick, and I’ve gradually been bringing the concert calendar (right) fully up to date. After previewing all of the shows coming up this week, I’ll highlight other new concerts in three separate posts for the remainder of October, November, and December and beyond. There’s a ton of great bands coming to the area so brace yourself. As usual, I’ve got a backlog of album reviews, concert reviews, pictures, audio downloads, and fun tales that I’ll get posted as time allows. Your patience and continued support is appreciated!
Built-for-radio hard rock band Three Days Grace plays a sold out show at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis tonight, Friday, October 12.
Tomorrow, Saturday, October 13 thrash gods Exodus play the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis with local support from Impaler, Black Rainbow, and Mördwolf. The bad news is that this is part of the annual Zombie Pub Crawl. Go visit their website for full details, but purchase of a wristband ($23 advance/$40 day of) does not guarantee admission to the venue. This venue is too small for Exodus for this type of event, so if you really must endure an annoying zombie crowd you better get to the Triple Rock early when doors open at 5. You decide whether it’s worth the hassle.
