Danzig and Doyle tonight...

I'm headed down to Providence R.I. tonight to see Danzig and Doyle (from The Misfits). There will be several other bands playing as well in "The Blackest of the Black" tour, but really, I'm just there for Danzig and the Doyle / Misfits 'reunion'.

I'm pretty psyched to see this show. I'm a huge fan of Glenn Danzig's music, including all his stuff from when he was in The Misfits, Samhain, and his solo band of course.

The last time I saw Danzig play was during the Danzig II: Lucifuge tour. I saw him in Boston with Soundgarden and Corrosion of Conformity. That was one of the best shows (if not the best) I have ever seen.

Danzig played in Worcester earlier this year and I missed it, so when I saw he was coming back into the area, I decided I was not going to miss it this time. If the show featured Danzig by himself, that would be enough for me to go, but add in the fact that Doyle will be joining him during the show to do a full-on, real-live, honest to goodness Misfits set, well... that's just going to be incredible.

I'm feeling pretty lucky because it was just about 2 weeks ago that I saw Social Distortion, another one of my all-time favorites, and it's really cool that now I'll be seeing Danzig so soon afterwards. Think about your two favorite bands of all time, then imagine they both come on tour to your neck of the woods less than 2 weeks apart. It could not have been timed any better.

I'll be going to this show, technically, by myself once again (I say technically because I'll be surrounded by hundreds of other Danzig / Misfits fans, I just won't know any of them. Heh.) but I don't care anymore if the people I used to hang out with back in the day don't want to go out and do things.

Going to Social D alone a few weeks ago was a liberating experience. I was by myself and I had an absolutely fantastic time. When I think of all the fun stuff I've missed out on doing because I waited around for somebody to make up their mind if they wanted to go or not, or never heard back from them or they said they didn't feel like going or whatever lame excuse it is, I just get annoyed. Fuck it. I'm not missing out anymore. If some band I want to see play comes around, I'm going. Life's too short to wait around for other people and miss out on stuff that you enjoy doing.

I'm not really planning on getting into the pit tonight. I'm thinking I'll just hang back more and just enjoy the show, but then again, that's what I said the last time and about 1 min after the music started I jumped right in there, so we'll see what happens. Either way, I'm sure it will be fun.

Hey man!

Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. You will have a helluva time tonight. I almost didn't go to the show and my younger brother talked me into going - I'm glad he did.

I'm not a big death metal fan (for whatever reason I never "got it") so I wasn't too into the other bands but seeing Danzig on that stage was awesome. Doyle is huge! Make sure to get up close to the stage to see these guys, then again I ended up jumping into the pit and I didn't see much after that! It was funny I seemed to be the only clean cut 30 year old guy banging around who knew all the lyrics..meh...kids nowadays!. lol.

I was a big fan of metal in the mid to late 80s, which turned into punk in the 90s and now all seems like it's coming back around to metal again. It's weird how that works. I'm glad I'm not growing up (well mentally anyways).

You saw Corrosion of Conformity back in the day? I saw them after they released Deliverance (Vote! is still one of my all time favorite tunes) at the Icon here in Buffalo - they opened for Henry Rollins. This was in '91 or '92 I think

Who'da thought I'd be friendly with a Patriots fan? (Just kidding)

Have a good one and have fun tonight. Take care.
