The return of warm weather always also means the return of great metal tours, as bands take advantage of a time of year when they can sleep in their vans or not run up a huge heat or AC bill on their bus and take to the roads after a long winters hibernation writing riffs and drinking beers. This week packs a powerful punch with one of the legendary women of heavy metal, a blistering metal/hardcore crossover show, and a crushing doom/black metal show, and this is just the tip of the melting iceberg.
DORO @The Bluebird – Wednesday, March 11
Metal goddess of classic metal band Warlock fame, Doro Pesch, is gracing us with her presence this Wednesday under the moniker of DORO.
