I'm for sure going to that tour! I have postcards to pass out to promote it cause I'm on the century records street team. Though I still have about 150 Lacuna Coil cards left from their tour.

Wooo!
Black Lips - I liked them a lot, they were very energetic, entertaining and also very drunk. Mostly it was songs from Let It Be, which is my favourite album by em. Unfortunately, the crowd was crap and weren't getting into it, which kind of ruined it for me. 7/10

Faust - They were mindblowing. It was at a very small venue, and was one of the most openly experimental gigs I've been to, with lots of weird objects used to influence the sound. During one song the drummer and the main vocalist got these pneumatic (sp?) drills from nowhere, and created this really fukced up sound by grating the drill along bits of metal, sending sparks flying through the crowd, while the guitarists slashed away in the background. Vacuum cleaners, screwdrivers, weird eastern looking instruments, and all kinds of weird tape loops were all also used. Truly an incredible experience, but they saved the best for last. Their deranged frontman marched into the crowd, asking for a lighter which a girl next to me gave him. He then lit this litttle bowl thing at the front of the stage, which went on fire. The smoke seemed to rise straight up to the ceiling, then it spread out engulfing the whole room. As this was happening, the song got noisier and noisier, faster and faster, and the last 5 minutes were basically some absolutely mindblowing free-form chaos with the band and audience barely visible through the weird smelling fog. It was like a mythical experience, and one of the best gigs I've ever been at. 10/10

Advice - go out of your way to see Faust live, you won't regret it.

Finntroll in August.
Sonata Arctica in September.
Nightwish in October.

It's the perfect end to summer.

Until then all I have planned is Ozzfest.

I'll be going to that show as well - Down is supporting them, and I think it's $116 per ticket.

The Snake The Cross The Crown tomorrow
The Black Keys 2 days from now
Colourmusic in 3 weeks (local band, awesome stuff, esp live)
All of DFest which is all the local hot shots in OK (Including The Flaming Lips and one of my personal favs, Kunek)
Girl Talk at the end of August
Saw The Hold Steady last night (with Illinois who was surprisingly good.)

I think that's it.
