Keep on rockin' in the cornfield!

For the Dekalb people...

I see there'll be a cool show at The House tomorrow night. I'm not familiar with the headliners, Fear Before the March of Flames, but they apparently just came off the Sounds of the Underground tour with Clutch, Opeth, High on Fire, and a ton of other cool bands (also , you can and should download Clutch's new video for Burning Beard at the SOTU site). If you can judge a band by the company they keep, well these guys will prolly rock your sox off, bub. At any rate, the name that caught my eye on this bill was Bear vs. Shark. After reading about them recently, on Pitchfork most likely, I decided to check out their album Terrorhawk. There's definitely a few things about the album that rub me the wrong way, for example, I'm not completely sold on the singer when he's in "tormented screaming" mode, but these guys definitely rock. I don't think I'll be able to make it out to the cornfields, although I may have to try. Who'd have imagined a day that I'd be driving from Chicago to DeKalb to see a show? When did the House start booking crazy RAWK shows?

  • What does that mean? Are you jealous because music is my "boy"?

  • Look in the Stolen Mix Tape group for photos from the first time Fear Before The March of Flames played in DeKalb, at The Rodeo.

  • Thanks for the Flickr links, guys. Is the house having rock shows regularly now? Is the Rodeo still a going concern?

  • E:
    Yes, and Yes
    at least im fairly certain the ROdeo is still having shows, if not its being used as a multi band practice space on occasion... wish is pretty much the same thing as a regualr show i guess...
    heh i remember when that was a place only a Vagabon would be caught!
