Psychedelic apocalyptic, the Crystal Antlers offer you their video for “Andrew.” Lovin’ the imagery. Perhaps the band could score themselves the score for the next installment of the Omen or The Prophecy. Or perhaps a creative scriptwriter could simply give the band a new platform upon which they’ll preach the end of the world. Catch the band live May 4 at the Triple Rock Social Club.
People may say what they please about Loaded, Reloaded, and any other post Black Album release from Metallica. One thing is indisputable; their live performances have never lost an ounce of potency. Wisdom within their years, the video for “Broken, Beat, and Scarred” showcases precisely what the band does best. Kicking you in the eardrum and making you like it live.
Metallica is coming to the Target Center October 13.
It was a cold and rainy March evening in the Twin Cities where glassy reflecting pools made for poor driving conditions. Yet there were those who had decided early on that the 7th Street Entry was offering a night worth braving, and they gradually filed in one after another as the hour struck nine. For some, Greycoats were the attraction, a local band that for more than a couple years have honed their sounds and skills within wine and beer venues alike. But for others, the lure was for something from without. Two bands touring just two days from SXSW, Eulogies and Middle Distance Runner.
I arrived in a bit of a panic. While arranging my schedule I had marked the concert time as 9:00PM, but an 8:00PM listing on the venue website had me second guessing. I had no pen and paper. During my rush out the door I had forgotten the simplest of tools and arrived ill-prepared. Such carelessness.
For some reason I find artist collaborations awkward, especially those that “feature” someone. Is Prince trying to send a message by featuring someone named Q-Tip? C’mon Prince, I’ve been listening for a long time. I don’t need to clear my ears, do I? (/non-witticism)
