Boooo!

Baroness are one of the few metal acts that I totally love but still haven’t seen live. Their newest, Red Album, was the best metal release that came out last year. So how stoked was I when I saw that they had announced a May 20th gig at the Showbox? Monumentally. But then the icy bitch slap of reality struck me across my face when I saw who they’re opening for - fucking Coheed and Cambria. Boooooooo. Booooo! Booooo!!!! The new Coheed album was arguably the biggest heap of dog shit released in audio form last year. I want to see Baroness is a room full of people there to see Baroness, not a flock of kids in Atreyu hoodies who finished up their math homework in homeroom so their mom would let them go to the show. Boooo!

All is not lost, though. This just means that I will most definitely have to make the road trip down to Portland on April 16th (which I was prolly going to do anyway) to catch one of the best metal lineups possible: Baroness, Genghis Tron, the Red Chord and Converge. It’s a shame that this show isn’t making it’s way up to us, but I figure Converge has had their fill of Seattle lately. I’m willing to make the drive.

I think I might have to make the trip to P-Town as well.

I had the same reaction. I'm not going to be able to make it to that Portland show, and I'm SO desperate to see Baroness, that I think I'm going to end up at the Showbox on May 20th. :(

I got to see Baroness at like, 2nd Ave Pizza in 2004. They played for 45 minutes straight, seriously. Totally worth it.
