Photo Gallery: Alcest @ The Ready Room (STL,Mo)

When it comes to St. Louis, underground metal shows can be few and far between. When I first found out that French act Alcest was going to be playing at the Ready Room in January, I thought I was dreaming. As the day grew closer and the show was still on the Ready Room website,…

Photo Album: Neal Morse Band @ Delmar Hall

It’s not very often that we get to cover a once in a lifetime event like we did with the Neal Morse Band playing their Similitude of a Dream album in its entirety at St. Louis’ Delmar Hall. This show was announced a few months back and immediately we knew it would be one not…

Photo Gallery: Full Terror Assault II

Three days of Metal, Booze, Camping and Extreme Heat. And you know what, we would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Full Terror Assault II went off without a hitch, well almost. Nothing wrong with the fest or anything, no it was more mishaps on our own accord; Missing tent poles and what…

Photo Gallery: Black Crown Initiate

Early last month, Pennsylvania’s Black Crown Initiate graced us with their presence after nearly two years since their last time here.

Photo Album: The Faceless @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

It’s not too often that the right local acts are thrown on a bill to open up for some touring acts in St. Louis. However there are those few select shows where someone got their head out of their ass and did it right. When I went to see The Faceless at Fubar a couple…

Photo Gallery: Abigail Williams @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

The mighty Abigail Williams came back to see us recently on their tour where they played only songs off the first couple albums. This was a show not to be missed, well tour really. It was great to see Ken and crew playing all the old school stuff that everyone loves. I missed the first…

Photo Gallery: Sunn o))) @ The Ready Room (STL, MO 6/6/16)

Anticipation grew as soon as this show got announced and I was finally going to get to see the lords of Drone music, Sunn o))). I never really listened to them, but just hearing about their shows, the loudness and the cathartic release that comes from their set enthralled me enough to add them to…

Photo Gallery: Black Pussy

So, we know the name of the article is misleading for some, however we can assure you that there are in fact photos of Black Pussy in this gallery. Now that we have your hopes up, we are talking about the Psychedelic Rock band from Portland, Oregon and not actual Black Pussy. As unfortunate as…
