ROCK BLOG: 2017 - A PNW Rock year for the books!

March 28, 2017

If you are reading this blog, you are most likely a lover of Rock/Metal.  If you live in Washington State, you are in luck.  Why?  Well, let's see here...  No big deal, but 2017 is looking okay.  OKAY??  Hell, no!  It's looking f**king mind-blowing!

Mastodon, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax, Cheap Trick,Testament, U2, Seether, Starset, Def Leppard, Tool, Korn, Stone Sour, Baby Metal, The Pretty Reckless, Roger Waters, Rise Against, Deftones, Green Day, Metallica, Slayer, Lamb of God, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Primus, Incubus, Clutch, and Guns N' Roses are on their way to us!!  To get full details and tickets, visit our CALENDAR page! 

I wanted to list all the bands in a row like that to give you the full visual impact on just how lucky we are to be living here.  Which bands are your top choices?  Mine of course, is Korn.  Not taking away from any of the other bands, but Korn has a special place in my soul for many reasons.  Korn will be headlining Pain in the Grass, June 24th, at White River Amphitheatre!  Get your tickets HERE starting Friday, March 31st!

Another favorite choice is Starset.  They're playing Showbox Sodo, June 3rd with Seether and Through Fire.  Killer song, "Monster" off their 2nd studio album, Vessels.  Get your tickets HERE.

Of course, I don't NEED to state the obvious, but I will.  METALLICA!!  TOOL!!  GUNS N' ROSES!!  Did I mention how lucky we are to be living here??  

Music is our universal language.  It saves us every day.  Crank Korn when stuck in traffic.  Just got dumped?  Blare Metallica.  Tool is great for when you're feeling lost.  Feeling alone?  Try Incubus, and so on.  These artists spill their hearts and guts through their music, then share it with us.  Makes me think for a brief moment that we're not all that different from one another.  We can relate to a lot of the same music.  Cheers to a righteous 2017!  Much love to you!
