In the Company of Serpents @ The Marquis – Friday Jan. 16th

This Friday brings a real treat for local fans: local doom greats In the Company of Serpents are having a party for the release of their new album, Merging in Light, which is really good. I’ve been listening to the promo nonstop since getting it last month, and I can’t wait for the show. They will be joined by some good openers, including The Flight of Sleipnir and Ghosts of Glaciers, and Trve brewery will be serving up beer on tap at the show. This is one to make it to for sure, as there will be some special edition merch, some rare brews, and tons of good times.
