Coal Chamber Reunion Tour
with Filter, Chombichrist, & American Head Charge
3-11-2015 at The Showbox

There were just the right amount of people at The Showbox last Wednesday night. It wasn’t sold out, but not freakishly lean either. Just enough room for moshing, jumping, and twirling your neck off with that bad-ass long hair of yours! And everyone was there to see different bands, any of which could’ve been headlining.

American Head Charge started out the night! And speaking of reunions, AHC has been back together since mid to late 2011. They have a four album catalog, most recently Tango Umbrella that was just released earlier this year.

Chombichrist blew up the stage next. This is a one man band except for live shows! Andy LaPlegua is the brain and voice behind Chombichrist. But on stage he’s accompanied by Joe Letz (drums), Z Marr (electronics & percussion), Abbey Nex (bass), and Eric 13 (guitar). And together they are an amazing industrial treat for both your eyeballs & earholes.

Then it was Filters turn. Now they had a rough start. They played the entire first song with no vocals coming out! And since they wear earpieces to hear each other, the band was clueless. However, they recovered quickly and just started over. The booing was quickly turned into horns & fists in the air and everyone singing along. Phew… Filters’ set was saved!

Coal Chamber headlined, taking the stage at about 10:30. Everyone on stage was part of their break-up in 2003. They came out blazing with “Loco” and “Big Truck”. Then lead singer, Dez Fafara, told everyone in listing distance to make up with people that we have rocky pasts with, that grudges take too much energy, and that reconciling differences is so worth it. That’s not a direct quote, but it did set the tone for the rest of the night. They even looked happy on stage!

Charming America Tour: In Flames
With All That Remains & Wovenwar
At The Showbox Sodo March 7, 2015

Last Saturday faces were melted at the Showbox Sodo when Wovenwar, All That Remains, and In Flames took the stage! It was a full house from the beginning to the end. A band out of San Diego, Wovenwar kicked off the evening with heavy metal tracks from their self-titled debut album. It was just released last August. All 15 tracks are available on iTunes and don’t forget to look them up on Facebook.

All That Remains was in full swing promoting their newest album, The Order Of Things. Their 11 song set included two from the new album and nine old favorites, including What If I Was Nothing. The Order Of Things is available on iTunes, Amazon, & Google. Or give it a listen on Spotify.

In Flames came out with a blazing intro and by the second song, had invited everybody to crowd surf! Security definitely got their work-out in with the waves & waves of guys & girls alike, surfing their way to the front. This pretty much set the tone for the rest of the night. Their 17 song set included three from their newest release, Siren Charms. It too, can be downloaded from iTunes or streamed for free, through Spotify.

This indeed, was a great metal show. From start to finish. If you missed any of these bands, be sure to catch them next time they’re in town!

Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Washington State, people have a lot of questions:

  • Where can I buy it for recreational purposes?
  • Where can I smoke it?
