Enslaved - where to begin? Viking metal, folk metal, Prog - metal, they change with each album & they are awesome live.
Ancient VVisdom from Austin - songs about the occult & Satan with an acoustic guitar works surprisingly well.
Pallbearer is doom, & seem to be getting alot of good reviews
I don't know if this will sell out but expect a good crowd. Tickets:

I think I saw you near the stage, I was gonna manuever to say hi, then lost you, oops. Looking forward to the photos.
Yeah, it was sooooo crowded & I was shooting so I didn't manage to circulate & look for anyone. Next time....
the concert got better for me progressively with each band
Me too, although I actually thought Ancient VVisdom was awesome, too
That was AWESOME
It totally was! I may have overindulged a bit, but...I REGRET NOTHING!
Feeling it today, but yes, AMAZING!!
Yes, I, too, enjoyed this show and thought all the acts were solid. Also, finally learned how to pronounce Riitiir. ^_^
Awesome show & by far the best meetup turnout we've had! Enslaved = incredible, Royal Thunder was as awesome as I hoped. I'm really hooked on Ancient VVisdom today, kinda like Austin City Limits gone Satanic. I'm useless & tired today but so worth it :)
Great show! Me and Ashlee got to meet all the members of Royal Thunder; Josh (guitar) sold us our shirts, and then at the end of Enslaved's set we met Mlny (vox/bass) and Evan (drums) and got their autographs. Nicest, most humble band I've ever met.
Hey all, my and my plus 1 will be in black Alice in Chains and Motley Crue tees, respectively.

I'll be there shooting for http://chiilliveshows.com/2013/01/shows-on-our-radar-enslaved-pallbearer.html. Look for me and say hey. I have to cover another earlier show so I may just make it for the final 2 bands. I still mostly look like this but with blue/black hair now.
I do still have 1 free guest list/press xtra if they sell out and someone's in a bind, but you have to wait for me to get there and no promises how early I'll be. Private email me [masked] if you need a free ticket & don't mind waiting around.
Hi, I'll be at Reggie's 7:15-7:30. It's going to be crowded. I'm wearing a black Wolvhammer shirt over a blue long sleeve. My txt is[masked] for anyone who wants to meet up.
Im probably gonna go, night off and no other plans, hope isn't sold out.

Glad you can make it! Superbowl might be saving this from selling out, get there early!
I would still buy your ticket ahead of time, as in now, lol. this is a relatively high profile gig and who knows
Enslaved? Wow, haven't seen/hung with them since their first U.S. tour at the Whale with Absu and Katakalysm. Hope the show was good for all you who did make it. Hopefully I'll make the next one.
Hey friends, with the exception of Laura, I haven't met anyone going to this Sun's meet up. My cell is[masked] so keep me posted on when & where ya'll are at. Thanx!
I'll be there around 7:15 - 7:30. It'll take me that long to fuss over the merch table :)
Hi all, we've got a large group of awesome people for a great show!! Just a reminder to change your rsvp if your plans change. Doors are 7pm, show should start 8pm. Alot of you know me, I'll send my text & identifying info tomorrow.
Been a while since I've met up with you guys, too long! Me n the GF are in. Royal Thunder's last album is beastly, can't wait!

Me too. As much as I like Enslaved, I'm so psyched to see RT!

Yeah, almost fell out of my wheelchair when I heard Erik is joining us :)
Hahaha! Oh man.
Good thing Reggie's is wheelchair accessible! :)

Wow, looks like we have a small metal army! So after I research viking battle formations, we will meet, assume our positions & proceed en masse to the front for optimal viewing location :)

Should I bring my drinking horn?
So long as it's filled with mead. And you have to guzzle, no sipping.
No bueno, I work weekends; I'm dying to check out Reggie's tho'!
Just an FYI this is Superbowl Sunday if it matters to you

Metal > all sports all the time always

I agree, but just in case...
Lol, I am right with you guys. I thought no one understood...
Well, you can have the best of both worlds. Reggies is having a SB buffet/party next to the concert venue. Game starts at 5:30 and concert starts at 8. It's win win, really.
Royal Thunder has been added to the bill! FYI, Enslaved, PB & RT are on tons off top lists for the year, so don't snooze & miss out on tickets!

This is seriously looking to be THE concert event of the year this far. There are a ton of great concerts early in the year, but the only other one that comes close to this lineup consistency is the Orange Goblin/Clutch one or maybe the Gojira/Devin Townsend/Atlas Moth one
I've heard great things about all of these bands, but haven't listened to any of them. Word on the street is Pallbearers latest album is one of the best of the year

life is not complete if you don't listen to Enslaved, tho their albums are all so different. I think Decibel rated Pallbearer & Enslaved's "Riitiir" on their top-something list for the year.

Yeah, probably the two best albums I've heard this year.
