Kowloon Walled City, Sod Hauler, Dark Castle @ Hemlock, 3/21/09

Black Label Society, Dope @ The Fillmore, 3/6/09

It’s cock rock night at The Fillmore. That’s about the only way I can describe the two bands that shouldn’t really be sharing the bill. Kinda like Slayer and Manson– I find it weird. Walking into The Fillmore was like entering a motorcycle rally where the gang is called Black Label Society. The fans are […]
