    Will be my first time for both bands as well.

    I'm sure we can rope something Disney related into this trip just for shits and giggles as well Steph. I wonder if the south florida brethren will venture up north for this ?

    You bet man. I'll be there like nobody's business. I haven't seen Opeth in several years, and I've never had the chance to see Katatonia; Both are fantastic!
    Shame its on a Tuesday, but oh well! :beerwink:

    I'm sure we can! If you think of anything, let me know. I actually haven't been to Disney since like 2004 lol. That's what happens when you live 45 min from Busch Gardens though :lol: I suppose Dave might show up, pretty sure I'll see him at ProgPower so I'll ask him then. Maybe Captain Metal will join us as well :beerwink:

    Good grief - I got so lost in the Black Metal thread walls of texts and links, I barely noticed this one. :lol: :beerhorns:

    Well, OF COURSE I'm going to the Chicago gig - The Vic is a great venue too - very few metal bands play there. I may even go to the Milwaukee gig as well.

    Oh, and by the Opeth way - I had The Drapery Falls on my mind when I woke up this morning. :cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBn7GDwc ... re=related

    this puts me in a tough spot, because I don't know my move date, and the shows will certainly sell out... they are here on Halloween, but I really hope to be in Florida by then... Florida on my birthday, but no guarantee I'll be there... WHAT TO DO?!

    His name screen name is warrior86, he's from Boca Raton, FL, and he's been to Teotihuacan, Mexico. :beerwink:

    Kevin - you commented lately that I have a good memory. Indeed, I do. Here's a funny - he posted a picture very early on in the pic thread of himself at Teotihuacan viewtopic.php?f=4&t=233&start=200 (coincidentally a place Kate has been to and a place on my bucket list - we discussed this at dinner in fact) - well that stuck in my mind and when I met him on the cruise (or was it the Transit Lounge - that part I don't remember due to way TOO much alcohol :party: )....I said hello and that I remembered him from the Teotihuacan picture on the forum. I think he was pretty surprised I remembered that. ;) :P

    :lol: Too funny. I just made a total "stab in the dark JOKE" and it's actually true. I just figured he was a dude with long hair so you had to go GAGA over him. Little did I know. :heavydrink:

    You memory comes and goes. I haven't forgotten the John Muir incident :mrgreen:

    Detroit on Oct 29! Another great Halloween weekend show in the D! There's only one other Detroit area cruiser I know of on the forums, but I've run into about a dozen or so fellow 70k tons-ers at shows afterwards. I'm sure just about every metalhead in the area will be there that night!

    Sept 28 for Nashville. I haven't see either live so definitely looking forward to this one. :headbanger:
    Wed night so my boss is just going to have to put up with me stumbling in bleary eyed on Thursday.

    Laura: The Vic is indeed an awesome venue. I caught a great gig there back in 2003. Nile, Naplam Death, Strapping Young Lad, Dark Tranquillity and The Beserker. I didn't even realize there was a balcony until just before the headliners came on.
    Life would be tragic if it weren't funny.

    Hmm... Seen Opeth three times and I sort of got over Katatonia a few years ago. But an opportunity to meet some cruisers before January? Sounds like fun! Anybody hitting up the LA, Pomona, or San Diego dates?

    Hey Steve, I am going to the show in San Diego. I believe you are rooming with Debb and Eric. They are both good friends of mine. :D I will talk to Eric and see if he is also going. :headbanger:

    Nice! Yeah it would be good to meet my roommates before we're all cramped in a tiny cabin together. I don't need much of an excuse to go to San Diego either.

    I've come *this* close to seeing Opeth a bunch of times over the years but have never actually made it for reasons of timing or money or both. Will be going this time in October in Edmonton! (Who knows? Might be a "local" show for me by then.) I'm looking forward to it!

    I saw Katatonia on their tour with Swallow the Sun and Orphaned Land in Arizona last year (both Mesa and Tuscon actually) and I'll share what I think is probably not a common sentiment: I thought the performance was kinda "so-so". I actually left in the middle of their set in Tucson, as I still had a couple hours of driving to do that night to make it to Bisbee. I wasn't familiar with their newer material and I think I may have been thinking too much along the lines of their older stuff. Ah well, I guess they'll get another shot in October! :D

    That sound like a great gig! None of those bands were on my radar in 2003, but would def. see a show with that line up today - I've never seen the first three in the list. I saw The Bezerker a few years ago as an opener - didn't know them at all but really liked them - bought an awesome shirt of theirs and I wore it on the cruise. It seems many people don't know who they are. Yep - looking forward to going back to The Vic - I lived in an apartment across the street when it was still a pretty bombed out neighborhood - it's real nice around there now. I've only seen a small mixed bag of shows there in recent years - Bauhaus, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Porcupine Tree.

    Yep. Would have been great to know some other folks! I have a tendency to help make this world REALLY small by traveling a fair amount. :) My parents were living in Utah 'til recently so last fall I flew form here to Vegas, hung out with them for a week, then went back and spent day with a friend in Vegas. I rented a car (put 900 miles on it in 5 days) and took some much needed "me time" and drove by myself from Vegas to Bisbee to visit another friend. Worked perfectly that the Katatonia/StS/Orphaned Land shows were placed right in between so I hit them both. I would have been the rather out-of-place girl in the Kreator denim vest sweating her ass off in 117 degree weather (IN SEPTEMBER) wandering aimlessly between sets who didn't have any friends to talk to!

    It's still a pretty fresh idea, but it's solid. I think I'm going to move to Edmonton in the fall. This big fish is feeling cramped in the small pond that is Saskatoon. Figure I might give E-town a try since I already did Calgary, but I'm looking forward to Calgary being MUCH closer if I do this! :D

    Well Kevin already knows through Facebook that Diana and I will be going to this (It's two of her favorite bands). makes for a good excuse to get out of town for a couple of days.

    As for Metal Dave (as we call him around here), I informed him of the show, but haven't heard back from him as of yet. I can think of a few others that'll be going as well (some from the cruise and some not). We may very well form some sort of Metal Caravan for the trek North. This is still months away, so there's plenty of time to plan.

    And I'll be damned, if that Firewind/Arsis/White Wizzard/Nightrage tour isn't hitting St. Pete a week later. Not sure I'll be able to make that one.

    [quote="Deathbringer"][quote="shaneos"]Sept 28 for Nashville. I haven't see either live so definitely looking forward to this one. :headbanger:
    Wed night so my boss is just going to have to put up with me stumbling in bleary eyed on Thursday.

    Another Nashvillian on the forum! I live in Murfreesboro. I will definitely be there.[/quote]

    Cool, It's at the Cannery too and not Rocketown which is great, won't have to smuggle in my mini JD bottles :cheers:

    Yep, the Cannery is pretty sweet. I haven't been to Rocketown in years. I think the only times I have been is when my former band played there.... what a horrible place.

    That's awesome Anika! Can't imagine how you do it in Saskatoon, ughhh Saskatchewan... yes can definitely see how the small pond thing applies! I've been told that Edmontonia has a better metal scene than Calgary, sounds like it will be a good change of pace for you! How does this affect your Derby stuff since you're so involved with it there?

    I've been to the Vic a few times myself. I seen Savatage and Trouble there back in '90 or '91 and some guy fell off the balcony and landed on the cement floor. I think he laid there for about a half hour before the paramedics came and took him out on a stretcher.
    It's one of my favorite Chicago venues, I may have to go to the Opeth show also. Would be my 4th time seeing them. Seen Katatonia once in Cleveland a few years ago.

    Such a shame we didn't know each other yet! I also went solo, though I did make some gig friends while there. Next time, let me know if you're ever around, even if it's not a gig I want to see I'll join ya :)

    I actually REALLY like Saskatoon in lots of ways. It's starting to really suck being single (my ex and I bought a house here and moved together then broke off the 8 year relationship within 12 months) and having to do everything by myself and for myself in a place where a solid partnership is really the only way to be effective. That's how it seems to me, anyway. (Nevermind trying to actually go about finding a future partner with pickins' like this, but thats another story....) The metal scene in Edmonton does appear to be thriving and the show aspect is a HUGE HUGE draw. There's LOTS of derby going on in and around Edmonton so I'm sure I'll be able to find somewhere I fit into a team there. I did just get re-elected media/merch director and will have to resign that duty mid-term, but shhhhhhh on that one for now! ;)

    You've got yourself a deal! :D I actually ended up engaging in a few good conversations at the shows too. It's always fun to talk to people about what's going on in their scene, and of course all us metalheads love to talk about bands and shows and stuff, so though I have wall-flower tendencies when solo, starting conversations is always easy!

    By all means Stan - come to The Vic Opeth gig! It will be my 4th time seeing them as well (would be my 5th had I not missed :evil: the last time they were in town with Enslaved). We can talk RUSH before and/or after the show! :D Btw, can't believe it is nearly a year ago (July 6?) we both sat in that torrential rainstorm waiting for Rush to come out for so long, only for it ultimately to be cancelled. :evil:
