Archaic Revival Art Show

I went to the gallery opening for Archaic Revival last Thursday at Space Gallery on Polk St. On display were screen prints, drawings and paintings by David D'Andrea, Alan Forbes and Stacie Willoughby. The show only ran for a few days, so it's way too late to go see it, but I wanted to share some of the pieces anyway. My favorite part about this show was seeing D'Andrea's original pen and ink drawings that get used in his screen printed posters.

Upcoming Events:
Buzz Ov*en 12/15 at DNA Lounge
Om 12/16 at The Independent
Agalloch 12/22 at Great American Music Hall

High On Fire

The Sanctioned Annihilation tour was a blast. Bills like this one are why I love going to metal shows. Each band had something unique to offer and had great energy. Kylesa had some really cool lighting effects involving album art from their forthcoming album Spiral Shadow. Torche played decimating riffs and had contagious smiles. Needless to say, High On Fire were exceptional and played a crushing set which ended with new fan favorite "Snakes For the Divine." I can't believe that album's been out for 7 months already.
