Tomorrow morning I will be departing Halifax with a small group of other hoodlums for a weekend trip to Toronto. We are making the trek for a very important reason: metal. Me and my friends will be seeing some of our favorite bands all on one ticket . . . Mastodon, Dethklok, Converge and High on Fire. The blog cannot contain my excitement for this stellar line-up.
Most metalheads have a top list of bands they need to see at some point in their life, and this weekend will allow me to mark off the third on mine. Check it out:
2. Queens of the Stone Age
4. Iron Maiden
I’m going to be giving out so many ‘satan fingers’ that my hands will surely be sore by Sunday. And speaking of which, the original version of the graphic above was done by Jon “Bean” Hastings, and I thought it an appropriate addition to this post. Gave me a good laugh.
I’ll be unplugged for the trip, so no email for a couple of days. I will however be mooching off my iPhone pals to update my Twitter as much as I can. So until then, stay heavy.
