Concert Announcements: Mastodon/Baroness,
Arctic Monkeys & more...

Another fantastic Spring show in Lawrence as my two favorite metal bands around right now will be heading through town on tour together. On Sunday, May 16th Atlanta's Mastodon will headline a show with Savannah's own Baroness opening. Both Georgian metal monsters landed in the top 20 of my Top 50 Albums of 2009 list, with Baroness' Blue Album landing at the #3 spot. Valient Thorr and The Buried And Me will also open the show.

That's not the only metal show of note announced recently, and this time the bill features Lawrence's own Coalesce. They'll be opening for another great metal band in Converge at The Bottleneck on May 10th in Lawrence.

Finally, Arctic Monkeys will also be making their way through Lawrence. They will be at Liberty Hall on April 12th.

Hey! Thanks for the comment. Your blog is pretty sweet as well. :)

Between The Buried And Me (or "BTBAM") are direct support for the Mastodon tour. They're progressive metalcore, and I highly recommend their last two albums "The Great Misdirect" and "Colors". As for Valient Thorr, they're just sorta silly. :P

Keep up the good work!
