8-bit Metal Mondays: Happy Memorial Day!!!

Enjoy the day off, and give a thought to the troops out there. As for those outside the U.S., enjoy your morning coffee or tea before you go to work as you read this.

The end of next week starts a pretty big double header for the site. First, on Friday, June 7th, will be the return of Baroness to Detroit after their awful bus crash last year. They've replaced their entire rhythm section and are looking to getting back into their old groove. The show itself is actually being pimped by the Orion fest as a pre-show, so attendance will probably be pretty good. I'm also trying to secure an interview with lead singer John Baizley, so we'll see how that goes.

The day after Baroness, the Orion fest starts proper, with two full days of an eclectic mix again. I was able to obtain a media pass for the event, so I'll be getting to do a few interviews there too. Oh, and Metallica as well. The festival itself has a lot more activities there than I originally thought. As a taste, here's a map of the area.


Then, after Orion, I fly out to Los Angeles for E3. The unfortunate thing here is that I'll have to miss attending the actual press events in person, as there's just not enough time. I won't even be able to watch Sony's show, as I'll be in the air at that time. Unless we have wi-fi on the plane (which I doubt), then I'll be playing catch-up after I land. Even then, I might just get an early sleep, as E3 is gonna be hella busy this year.

Well, that's all the current plans so far. It's now time for bleepy stuff. We'll do Dillinger Escape Plan, since they're playing at Orion this year.
