My First Black Metal Show
Last night, my good friend Wm. M Berger, DJ extraordinaire on WFMU, brought me to see Bone Awl and Akitsa play at Fontana's in NYC. I had never seen music like this played live and although much beer was spilled on me, and I got punched in the stomach, I had a great time. The vocalist for Akitsa had the most amazing range I've ever heard and besides some idiots near the front the crowd was very cool. The genre is new to me and I've been listening to a lot of great stuff, spanning decades. But I may just have to attend another of these soul searing shows, if I can't find the right outlet for my rage, at least I can watch O.T. do it for me.
