    Here are a few of the upcoming shows that i'm going to... If you want to go or meet up there that would be cool...

    This Saturday, the 17th, Black Label Society @ Amos' South End, Charlotte...
    Saturday, March 24th, Clutch @ Tremont Music Hall, Charlotte...
    Saturday, May 5th, Type O Negative @ Tremont Music Hall, Charlotte...

    The BLS show I will be getting off from work early and I only work a block from the club so I will be walking there and will probably get there about 9pm. The other shows I will be getting the day off from work, so I should be available earlier those evenings...

    Ok, I went to the Black Label Society show on Saturday night. Wow! What a great show. It was sold out, capacity was 1,000 people. There were a few annoying things, having to freeze my butt off for 40 minutes waiting in line to get in, was one of them. It was a little too crowded for me, I'm kind of claustrophobic, and it was way too hot. I was soaked in sweat by the end of the show. But it was totally worth it to see one of the greatest guitar players ever. They played for an hour and forty five minutes straight and they did a good mix of new songs from their new album and older songs. Oh, and it was LOUD! One of the loudest shows I have ever been to. I did not bring a camera because I was not sure if they were allowing them or not. But I found some pics on the bands MySpace page that will kind of give you an idea what it was like.

    BLS1

    BLS2

    BLS5

    BLS6

    Are you looking for some cooler weather? I'll be going to the Clutch show on saturday and I don't think it's going to be as cold as it was last Saturday. At least I hope not... [face_praying]

    Ok, here is some info about an upcoming show. If anyone is interested in going please let me know...

    Who: Southern Culture on the Skids
    When: Friday, June 29th
    Where: The Visulite Theater, Charlotte, NC

    This is a great local band. They are from Chapel Hill, NC. They usually play Charlotte about once per year but for one reason or another I missed the last two time they played. Tickets should be cheap, less than $20. Go to the TV Room and check out a few of their songs... [face_peace]

    Hey all... just wanted to say that I picked up the new Ozzy Osbourne cd Black Rain today and I gotta say this cd is great. It's his first new album in six years and I would say it the best album he's put out since 1991's No More Tears. Most of the songs kick ass although some are ok, so overall I would say the album is really good and worth picking up. Ozzy is, of course, on vocals. Zakk Wylde is, also of course, back shredding on the guitar and Mike Bordin, formally in Faith No More is back on drums. The new addition is Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, who used to be in Rob Zombie's band. Anyone who want's to check out the first single, I Don't Wanna Stop, can go to my MySpace page and listen to it there.

    Hey everyone. I just got back a little while ago from the Southern Culture On The Skids show and it was great. I got a good spot up near the front and I was able to take some pretty good pictures. I also got the band to sign one of their cd booklets for me. And I got my picture taken with the bass player, Mary Huff. I was going to get my picture taken with the other guys in the band but the batteries in my camera died. [face_frustrated] :( Anyway, here is a link to the photos I took tonight. Enjoy...
