Win A Ticket For Ne Obliviscaris @ Gramercy Theatre On 7/29/2016

I’m just back from a visit to family down South but you would never notice unless I mentioned it since I kept the postings from the San Diego Comic Con coming at the readership like a machine gun fire. This morning I put it out there to the powers that be that I had interest in a giveaway for the Ne Obliviscaris show at Gramercy Theatre and the interest was mutual so read more about this sure to be a monster of a show.

The Details: I’ve only caught the band Ne Obliviscaris once in concert and they blew my Metal Mind which was why I was eager to bring a few fans into the mix for this one. I think it’s a great thing to see just how broad the spectrum is for our beloved genre. Their sound is both crushing and creative and seeing them headline will be pretty damned cool. Then there is the direct support band Black Crown Initiate to consider. Wow does this band slam you down onto the ground like a sumo wrestler. I’ve actually seen them the most out of all the bands on this bill and think you must be a part of it if you know what is good for you. Leading off the national supporting bands is Starkill who we also enjoy and a local group of positive note in Winter Nights. Read on below on how to participate since you know you want to.

When and Where: Friday, July 29th @ Gramercy Theatre (127 West 23rd Street, NYC)
