The Coming Month

This April seems to be shaping up to be a good one for me, there's a couple of good shows coming through Texas which is almost a rarity these days. I don't know why, but it just seems a lot of artists avoid Texas at all costs. It was really cool when the Aquabats came through though.
Gogol Bordello is coming through. I LOVE these guys, their style is very unique and their shows are always full of energy and a blast to go to. They're a Ukrainian gypsy punk band that will rock your pants off.
Not to mention that Eugene Hutz is one interesting dude. He's been the base for a couple of characters in movies and books like the ukrainian guy in Wristcutters: a Love Story. He's even acted in a few movies.


Sometime after that I'll going to see a Protest the Hero, a prog metal band out of Canada. I've recently been introduced to these guys, but I really like their sound.
I'm pretty excited to check these guys out especially since they'll be touring with Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. I've been told those guys have sick sets

Mixed in there will probably be a few shows of my own, one with local hardcore/metal favorite Kublai Khan, maybe hop on a few with On the Shoulders of Giants, and would be EPIC if we could get one of my personal favorites out of north Texas to come out: Informant

  7. Lucky you.. you're going to listen to Gogoll :D
    Sometimes they remind me of Kultur Shock. Could be 'cause they are playing gipsy punk rock etc.
