Comments:
Corrections House is something of a super group, consisting of Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Mike Williams of Eyehategod, Bruce Lamont of Yakuza and Sanford Parker of Minsk. Their show is unusual in that each member gets a portion of the set to be featured but by the end they’re all blending their unique styles together in something that seems more free form than your typical live show. Statiqbloom is an electronic/industrial project by Fade Kainer who metal heads will recognize as the vocalist of Batillus.

Corsair is a great band from Charlottesville, Virginia and they play a really catchy style of metal with clean vocals somewhat reminiscent of Thin Lizzy. They’re playing this show with some top local talent as well, including one of the area’s best prog bands Iris Divine, thrashers Rat Infested, and stoner band Caustic Casanova. That’s a pretty great line up for just $8!

Dominium 11:00
Acheron 12:00

Comments:
Acheron was one of the old school death metal bands rising out of Tampa, Florida in the early 90s. The band has since relocated to Ohio, and vocalist Vince Crowley is no longer a reverend in the Church Of Satan, but the band marches on with their distinct brand of Satanic death metal and this will be their only stop in our area on their current tour. There’s a lot of regional support bands on this bill, mostly of the death metal or black/death variety. And remember, all women get in free before 9pm.

Comments:
This is one hell of a stoner rock/metal line up! Weed Is Weed is the current project of Dave Sherman, best known for his roles in Spirit Caravan and Earthride. Sixty Watt Shaman has been putting on great shows since reforming a year or so ago. Volume IV is coming up from Atlanda, Georgia to play this. Borracho is DC’s premiere stoner band and openers Foghound are definitely worth getting there early to see.

DC’s own Clutch is known to play shows at the 9:30 Club during the holiday season, but this year they’ll be playing their on New Year’s Eve. Also on the bill is Miami, Florida’s Torche and locals Lionize. Everyone in attendance will get a complimentary glass of champagne just before midnight as well. Despite the high ticket cost on this one, it will probably sell out. To save yourself the fees you can always buy from the 9:30 Club’s box office in person and they’ll only charge you a $1 per ticket fee.

The opener is Revenge, and excellent band from Edmonton, Canada and definitely worth getting there early enough to see.

Karma To Burn is a killer instrumental trio from West Virginia that you gotta see if you love great metal riffage. Sierra is an instrumental band too and while the Canadian band only has one album out, they should be a perfect opener for Karma To Burn.

Machine Head has rescheduled their tour to support their new album, Bloodstone & Diamonds but this time it is coming to the Baltimore Soundstage instead of the Fillmore Silver Spring. Not sure who else will be playing but I think it’s a safe bet that it won’t be Children Of Bodom.
