Boris at The El Rey Theatre

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A little while back, Omeed and I caught Boris at The El Rey Theatre here in Los Angeles. I had never before had the opportunity to see them live. We were so excited, the entire drive there we were just talking about how the show might be: if they brought their own gear to the states, did they borrow a bus from sunn O))), etc. The opening act, Red Sparrowes, was another band I had not seen live.

Torche US Tour 2010 + 10″ Split w/ Boris

The mighty Torche have announced that they will be bringing their sludge-pop anthems to the masses this year on a US tour in support of Coheed and Cambria. Why is this good news? Well, it kind of isn’t; but hey, it’s Torche. It’s great for them, not so great for us. Tickets for all the dates haven’t gone on sale yet but the prices seem to be in the $30 range before the extra ticketmaster/livenation we-can-charge-whatever-we-feel-like-fees. However, Torche are badass live and it would be fun to see them in bigger clubs, even if they probably only get to play a 30-minute set.

If you haven’t seen these guys live and you have the extra cash, I say go for it. And if you have seen them before, then you know how good they are and you’re already counting whatever’s in your wallet. Continue reading
