    Gonna be in Seattle

    by Element0s » Fri Nov 09, 2012 3:06 pm

    hey folks, I'll be visiting Seattle for Christmas, I'll be around between the 21st and 31st (possibly stay for new years?) of December, if anyone wants to meet up, get a Gatekeeper demo or whatever, let's do something! Any cool gigs (local or otherwise) happening?

    Cycosurgeon mentioned Paul D'ianno on the 22nd and Alcatrazz on the 28th, I'll go to both if I can. Anything else during that period?

    Hi! Any chance you're a Frank Zappa fan? Hodgy and I will be at this on the 23rd:

    Hey Jeff, not sure this would be your bag but I like this band. So far it looks like this is the only band playing it.


    Saturday, December 29, 2012


    Presales: 8$ / DOS : 10$
    Tickets also available at Flights Pub Cash/Credit w/ no service charge.

    Purchase presales here! : http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/270051

    WITCHBURN is Jamie Nova, Mischa Kianne, Jacy Peckham and Dana Sims.

    Heavy, downtuned, southern fried, whiskey soaked sabbra cadabra. Their live show pulsates with seething and sultry, sweaty energy. Bringing as much groove as brutal thunder, the music is like a hammer straight to your soul, crashing down through the sky... only you welcome its impact the moment they tear into their first song. Spilling their guts on every stage they play, they've opened for Slipknot, Helmet, Crowbar, Saint Vitus, Blue Cheer, Mudvayne, Fu Manchu, 3 Inches of Blood, Trouble, Zeke, Pentagram and Valient Thorr, to name a few. Featuring the soaring, soulful vocal power and prowess of Jamie Nova and the monster riff-crafting of Mischa Kianne on guitar and occasionally violin, along with the unmatched low-end heaviness of Jacy Peckham on bass coupled with the bone-crushing, rock solid groove provided by Dana Sims on drums, Witchburn is the sound of rebellion in the voice of a hate-child conceived during a mythical orgy between Black Sabbath, Janis Joplin, Ronnie James Dio and Heart.

    Witchburn delivers passionate, moody southern metal, made even more potent by the band's fierce energy and considerable musical chops. The smoky grooves are deep and heavy, tapping into a classic rock vein with gritty guitar lines, seamlessly blending vintage rock influence with that of modern metal. Their ready-for-battle anthems, apocalyptic overtones and dirty, doom-laden riffs keep your ears glued while confirming that these are dedicated musicians with genuine love for all that is heavy. Singer Jamie Nova is also well known for her former role as lead vocalist in the all female AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles, in which she portrayed Bon Scott and Brian Johnson with her surprisingly expressive vocal range. Seeing what else this band is capable of becomes even more attractive when the black-dreadlocked guitarist trades her Les Paul for a violin on a song or two. Their mighty riffing, powerful vocals and kick ass, shout-along choruses completely galvanize even the most skeptical listeners, sending them promptly into blissful abandon as they surrender to pumping their fists in the air.

    In the summer of 2010, the band independently released their first full-length album, This is How We Slay Our Demons... which features 13 original tracks and was produced by Seattle's legendary Jack Endino (High on Fire, Zeke, Valient Thorr, 3 Inches of Blood). They followed the release with aggressive touring throughout the western half of the US that summer, the following winter, and into the spring. They are currently planning a European tour for the fall of 2011.


    Witchburn has also garnered strong support from radio, including KISW in their native Seattle. The opening track on their debut offering, "Bleed the Stone", was featured in the KISW 9 O'Clock Cockfight with Jolene, where it went on to win the maximum 7 times in a row before the song was placed in the Cockfight's "Hall of Fame". The station has also featured Witchburn as BJ Shea's Loud and Local Band of the Week on two separate occasions. Pouring their whole hearts into their own bluesy brand of sultry Sabbath sludge, Witchburn commands you to throw your metal horns up high!

    Yeah, Witchburn kicks ass! Glad they are getting so many touring opportunities. I'll be in Phoenix for New Year's, so I won't make it to that show. That kinda sucks, because it's so close to home.

    On the flip side, I get to ride on the back of a Harley across the desert! A new adventure for me! :viking:

    Paul Dianno from Iron Maiden is playing on December 22 at El Corazon. Witchburn is playing that show, too.

    I think I'm gonna go to that one! :cheers:

    Probably not this trip. Only there for 3 days. Going to visit family, and an old high school friend in Prescott and hit Sedona on the bike. :smoking:

    Ok so I think we've covered all the local gig bases. What about...

    - Music stores (records or instruments)
    - cool thrifty stores
    - favorite resteraunts (any style of food)
    - rock-oriented bars/pubs
    - ancient book stores

    etc etc

    also, that WITCHBURN band is pretty wicked, surprised I haven't heard of them before.

    This is one of my favorite spots to eat, especially before or after a show:

    http://the5pointcafe.com/


    It's an iconic Seattle spot! Kind of a dive bar, but it's pretty cool! Interesting characters there.

    Let me know if you guys like to meet there for dinner & drinks before the Paul Dianno show!
