I won passes to see the preview screening of Global Metal last night. If you even have a passing interest in metal, I highly suggest that you check it out (regular release opens today). I was going to describe it, but you can get a better idea by clicking the link up there and checking out the trailer. The only downside to watching it was that all I want to listen to today is Slayer, and that's not really work appropriate.
Also worth a note is District 319, which was where the screened the film. Located in this familiar part of town, the place sticks out like a sore thumb. In fact, I've been wondering what the building was for awhile. Inside, in addition to a bar, the theatre boasts loungers and footrests. The screen was no hell (though also not a detriment), but it was definitely the most comfortable movie going experience I've had.
Entropia played a few songs before/after. The songs on their MySpace aren't really doing anything for me, but they sounded pretty good live.
Sigur Ros are at the Chan Centre on October 7th. My interest in them sort of waned, but they'll sound amazing in there.
John Vanderslice is at the Media Club on September 3rd.
Chad VanGaalen is at Richard's on October 9th.
In opening band news, No Gold supports the Dodos show on June 26th and Twin Crystals start things off before Girl Talk on July 24th. If you've got tickets to either, make sure you show up early.
now playing: the NHL entry draft
the new sigur ros album is actually not bad. it might be the first one they've done that's substantially different from their other ones.
I'd agree with that. I thought there was a pretty big jump quality-wise between Von and however-your-supposed-to-spell-the-second-one, but it's been mostly the same, but not as good, since then, until this one.
Any idea when the Sigur Ros tickets will go on sale, and where to buy them from?

the Chan is a ticketmaster venue so they will be available from the usual TM outlets....in general if you buy tickets at the Chan Box office, there is no service charge...
