Sat-r-dee Alunah

Got in from the Truckfighters show a little before 3AM last night, so rather than even open the laptop to post something, I just went to bed. I’ll have a full review of that show come Monday, but yeah, it was something else. The tour dates are here; if they’re coming by you, you should go. Especially if Valley of the Sun are on the bill too. I imagine the two of them together makes for some pretty formidable fuzz.

Coming off that gig last night, I wanted to cap this week with something thickly toned, next-gen and mightily grooved, and UK outfit Alunah seemed just right. Alunah will release their next album through PsycheDOOMelic in 2012, but “Call of Avernus” is the title cut from their 2010 full-length. Good band, good song. Hope you dig it.

Next week, The Patient Mrs. and I are headed west to Detroit to loaf around and see what’s what. I kind of put in the June numbers post that we were thinking about moving, and it’s not entirely untrue, but it’s more of a backup plan than anything else. Either way, we leave Wednesday night, and I don’t know what that does for posting after that, but if I have time to get anything up, I will. I’ll be seeing Clutch in Flint while we’re out there, so hopefully I’ll be able to do something on that.

I also want to get that YOB interview posted before I split, so hopefully that’ll be Wednesday. That, reviews of Admiral Browning and the aforementioned Valley of the Sun, and a look at Eagle‘s new Deep Purple reissues are all forthcoming, so there’s much to stay tuned for. I’m also headed down to see YOB and Dark Castle at Kung Fu Necktie in Philly tonight, and I don’t think I’ll give the show another full review, but I’ll have my camera on me, and maybe able to post some pictures if I come out with any decent ones. Kind of a crap shoot, as far as that goes.

If you’re going to that, or to Clamfight and Rukut afterwards at JR’s Bar, or if you’re not, I hope you have a great and safe weekend. I’ll see you on the forum and back here Monday.

    Detroit? Back up plan for what? Armageddon? I thought people were fleeing Detroit?

    Anyway, good luck, have fun, stay safe and YES to the Yob interview sooner rather than later.
