This shit makes me feel 20 again

Just circle pits.
NIK TURNER is 73 years old and has traveled through more galaxies than Capt. Kirk and Douglas Adams combined. Mr. Turner is a founding member of HAWKWIND, the sci-fi space-metal kings of the 1970's. Interesting fact: this is where Lemmy started his music career as a roadie (he later became the bass player, and was fired for preferring meth instead of hallucinogenics). Nic Turner (sax, flute, wackiness) and his band will be playing HAWKWIND's all-time, hashtacular Space Ritual at the Echoplex this Sunday. Special "psychedelic friends" are promised on the bill, along with Arcata, California's WHITE MANNA, who according to their website, play "space rock using a scorched-earth policy." Fire up the "Orgone Accumulator", and get ready to travel a billion light years from Earth.
Congrats to local eastsiders GYPSYHAWK as they prepare to embark on their headlining tour next month with a penultimate stop at The Joint on April 4th before finishing off, as every tour should, in the birthplace of KORN.
Some shots of last Thursday's IDES OF GEMINI set at The Satellite by the one and only Ken Jodder. The next time they're on stage will be opening for GHOST on the Haze Over North America tour this spring.
Farron (aka Autarch) of LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH clearly worked his ass off on this. Inspiring all these folks to participate and help execute his vision says all you need to know about the man.
Come out and welcome the unstoppable BORIS all the way from the Land of the Rising Sun, for two nights at the Echoplex in May, the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day. First night "the band will perform its all-time classics along with many new songs never before played in the US." The next they take on "most of Boris' cult classic album Flood along with a noise/drone/experimental set." DEAFHEAVEN provides all the support you need. And then Saturday it's BOLT THROWER.
THE SHRINE play the El Rey tomorrow night with Graveyard, part of a month-long tour that takes them around the country with the Swedish upstarts. Here they sit down to talk with one of their early supporters, Chuck Dukowski, about the usual stuff - the process and their influences.
Wide Open WoundHate won't hide these woundsNo coming back from your abuseI'm the wreckage you leftI'm the wreckage that crushed youNo cause; caught in your violent tideThe effect will be your demiseYou expect faith but parade as a whoreYou got your fair share but you took moreYou inflict pain with every touchYou have abandoned everything you've loved
