    For a second there, I thought that poster was an Acid Bath album cover. I was freaking out!

    Also of note, for the doomier folks:

    Oct 13: Sons of OTIS 25th anniversary show @ Bovine
    Oct 14: Elder @ Velvet Underground (super-late start–doors @ 11 pm)
    Nov 1: Primitive Man/Bell Witch @ Coalition

    Did not know that Acid Witch was in town on the 14th. I’ve already got a ticket for Elder, though…

      Thanks Greg! Gotta love those doubleheader nights in this beautiful, spoiled little town.
