    Are The Offspring still going?

    It's funny, I've been going through all of my CDs recently, playing a new disc each week in the car and this week's offering is Americana by The Offspring which just happens to be the first album I was ever given

    Saw the Electric Light Orchestra last night...

    All I can say is WOW!


    An absolutely amazing gig, top notch sound, all the classics and a quite brilliant light show.

    Surprisingly high energy gig. In fact, she is mental on stage. No chilled out hippy anymore

    Just announced that Slayer along with Cannibal Corpse, Amon Amarth, and Lamb of God are coming to Ottawa in May..... I'll be buying tickets today.... I think my 13 year old daughter is more excited about the Slayer show than anyone else I know

    Metallica might be my ceiling for metal (if they are even metal enough to be called metal, more kevlar than metal ).

    That said, when it comes to dance I don't have a ceiling. Case in point I'd love to go to a DJ Buzz Fuzz gig https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsqjYKjLhlM

    Slayer is one of my all-time favourite bands (although their recent stuff is kinda meh).... I don't care much about the other bands though

    Went to Picture This last Thursday as part of herself's Birthday (tickets) and Christmas presents (Hotel)

    Great gig. It was like being a bouncer at a teenage disco though

    Read the opening post and thought "what, are Linkin Park still active, did they get a new vocalist?"

    Then I noticed the post was from 2015 😂

    Me and two mates have been putting 5 each on a team to make a 15 treble all season. We signed off with a pot of 910.17, roughly about 300 profit overall I think,

    So with our winnings we've got tickets to a festival at the end of August:
