In the “useless facts that nobody cares about except me” category we have the fact that last month Flotsam and Jetsam broke my record for longest time between seeing a band live at almost 29 years. The record was short lived as yesterday Metal Church became the new record holder at over 32 years. They were great and well worth the wait. Hopefully it won’t be that long before the next time.

Today’s agenda

Krisiun @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

#geflemetalfestival #geflemetal @Krisiun #brutalAssault2019 #brutalassault @metalchurchis1

Followed by Sacred Reich, Metal Church (for the first time since July 2, 1987* at the Omni in Oakland, California!), Kampfar, Windhand, and more.

* If you would have told me 32 years and a month ago that I would see Metal Church next in over 32 years, in the Czech Republic no less, my mind would have exploded. Back in 1987 the Czech Republic didn’t even exist. Back then it was Czechoslovakia and part of the Soviet Union. Boy do I feel old…

2019 Brutal Assault Festival

Brutal Assault has created a fun little app for concert goers to create their own poster. I couldn’t stop at just one. In fact, I could have easily come up with several more, but I restrained myself. If only you could do this for festival shirts so you didn’t end up with bands you can’t stand on your back. 😉
