Preview: Agalloch, and The Power of the Riff

Ugh. I’m finally out of that funk that caused me to ignore my beloved blog. Sorry, reader. It won’t happen again. Say… What are you doing Friday and Saturday? If the answer is “nothing,” then you’re fucking up big time. If you haven’t already heard, then I’m here to spread the word of two shows — both different, both rippers, both potentially legendary — at The Echoplex.

Friday – Agalloch offers up a  cold, atmospheric black metal experience that’s sure to remind of you of those hot Summer nights in which you stuck your pillow in the freezer hours before bedtime to combat the night sweats. Don’t fucking lie. You did that. Don’t miss your chance to witness Agalloch’s new EP Faustian Echoes performed in its entirety!! Also on the bill are psychedelic doomsters Taurus, and Oskoreien will kick things off. Be there! Buy tickets here:

Saturday – Southern Lord invades both The Echo, and Echoplex to bring you the 3rd annual Power of the Riff Festival, featuring the likes of Xibalba, Eagle Twin, OFF!, Power Trip, Repulsion, and Sunn O))). Hardcore! Doom! DrO)))ne! Thrash! It’s a melting pot of sub genres, in the melting pot to end all melting pots — Los Angeles! So be quick, L.A.! These tickets are going to sell out before you can get to the door!! Buy tickets here:
