With the exception of 2 people, no one knows who the heck the bands are I’m seeing tonight. I must admit, I had never heard of Combichrist before I bought the tickets, but I’ve checked them out and they seem ok. A little more techno than I like, but eh, they’ll be on stage for like 45 minutes. Course, I was in the same situation when I saw Flogging Molly open years ago for The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and now I’m going to see them headline in a few weeks.
My main reason for going though is K.M.F.D.M.. I’ve been listening to them since the early 1990’s, and I certainly never thought they would be coming through my neck of the woods, but well. You can read all about them at Wikipedia. They were one of the first, if not the first, to really bring industrial music about. Check out an older video of them.
If you haven’t guessed by yet, my music tastes are all over the place. The funny thing is, this is my first concert since October 16th, 2000. Why do I remember the exact day? I got out of the Flogging Molly/Bosstones show to the news that our governor, Mel Carnahan, had died in a plane crash. Great way to remember huh?
