When I read the wiki description of Dark Tranquility as "Swedish Melodic Death Metal", I was like I so have to experience that! And then I saw the price at the LVCS as $23 for a total of five bands, I was like absolutely!
Here's a couple of videos to get your blood going:
Leading up to Dark Tranquility are Omnium Gatherum, Exmortus, Scicosis and Pillars of Creation. This is 21+ and tix are $23. They might be a few dollars cheaper if you get them in advance. Doors are at 8pm and they say show will start at 8pm. But, I suspect the first band won't go on until at least 830pm. As this will be a long night, let's meet at 845pm. But, I am open to getting there earlier if anyone would prefer to make sure and not miss any of the opening acts.
If you haven't been to the LVCS, it can be a little hard to find. LVCS stands for Las Vegas Country Saloon, although I have never known them to have country music. Here's their web site:
They are on Fremont Street right next to that new launch pad for the zip line, which is also now the world's largest slot machine. They are on the second floor and describe their location as, "The LVCS is located on Las Vegas Blvd and Fremont Street on the second floor of the World's Largest Pint."
Let's meet just outside on the ground floor. I will provide more details day of show.
