A lot of recent travel has prevented me from posting, but tonight is a big night of metal if you're looking to get out. First, barring any last-minute fiascoes like the aborted show at Cabooze in Minneapolis a couple years ago, Danzig performs tonight at Myth in St. Paul with support from Scar The Martyr (featuring Joey Jordison of Slipknot), Huntress, local hardcore band In Defence. This is part of Danzig's 25th Anniversary Tour and will feature a special Misfits set with guitarist Doyle. It's an all ages show that starts at 6:30, and tickets are $25 at the door.
In Minneapolis, tonight you can catch death metal band Wretched with Abiotic, Allegaeon, Rivers Of Nihil, and Solar Slaughter at Studio B in the Skyway Theater. This is an 18+ show with doors early at 5:00 and tickets $10 at the door.
Lastly, if you're in the east metro area or western Wisconsin, it's not far to Eau Claire to see Finland's Wintersun as they embark on their first North American headlining tour at The Oxford Theater. There's strong support from Fleshgod Apocalypse, Arsis, and Starkill, making this well worth the drive. It's an all ages show that starts at 7:00, and tickets are $20 at the door.
