The turnout at Footsies last night was disappointing. I heard an excuse that rent paymets are due, but the Gold Room was overflowing this evening. This guy at the LA Weekly has figured out something special is going on:
Metalheads have it tough. There are few places in L.A. to sip beers at a bar and listen to the awesome aural assault of double bass drums stabbing your earholes. At best you'll hear Motorhead (in Echo Park) or at worst, Disturbed (very prevalent in West L.A.), but never any Nordic Viking Metal nor New Jersey grindcore. Luckily, Metal Mondays at Footsies on N. Figueroa in Cypress Park offers a safe haven for metal enthusiasts. Expect Gothenberg's greatest hits, choice cuts of goregrind and guest DJs from metal bands and labels. No Crabcore allowed.
Why can't you? If not for me, do it for Laurel, the bartender. She's the queen. See you next week.
