Nothing like a drive through the boringness of the upper Hudson Valley of New York State. Good thing for me, Katatonia is waiting for me when I get to Poughkeepsie tomorrow night. I've gone on about how seriously amazing they are and now I'll get to witness it all, live from the Center of Commerce and overall worldly importance, Poughkeepsie, NY.
I'm expecting a vast array of lunkheads: Hicks, meatheads, old school pre-good Katatonia death metal fans, Cure-ish wallflowers, dudes in black lipstick and some seriously ugly women. The people-watching will be worth the $25 ticket price by itself.
Request of the night is for "Criminals". These fuckers better come through.
Swallow The Sun is also on the bill and I've been hearing so many great things about them. Jonas from Katatonia helps out on vocals on one cut off their recently released LP, Home. Almost like a less proggy Opeth at times.
This makes me happy:
