Hey FLObserver. Just noticed your location. What part of Jax do you live in? We have a group that gets together to watch the games at Players Grille on Hendricks. Would love to have more people come out. The more the merrier. :cheers:...

Yes it was. And I RARELY get that feeling from anything in any movie. But that one kinda made my guts wrench a little.
The first scene that came to mind for me was the desert scene in Natural Born Killers with Nine Inch Nails, Something I Can Neve...

This is cool. Figured I'd search just in case and sure enough there's this video from the show here in Jax last week. The guy filming this was literally right next to me to my right.

That's great!! I swear a long time ago one of my shitty dreams about running late to the game involved something being wrong with Tiger Stadium and the game taking place at Olympia Stadium on Kenilworth at...

My dreams involving LSU games always suck. I'm running way late and trying to get to the stadium. Usually gets to halftime and I'm still nowhere near the stadium. Like trudging through mud. Definitely a great feeling to wake up....

Yep. In fact I was gonna volunteer that info to you next. We do have a local group. We've moved around a few times over the last 10 years. We had spent two and a half seasons at Hurricane Grill & Wings until we had a falling out with management during the Florida game last season (manager was an...

Freebird is a GREAT venue. They don't get quite as many heavy shows as I might like but I've seen Clutch there twice, COC and Crowbar together, Soulfly, Cannibal Corpse, and a few more. So they do bring some heaviness, but not in great numbers. They bring a lot of different genres though. So the...

Great news gentlemen. When I got the venue last night, I found out that for some reason Filter was no longer on the bill. Pretty strange for a headliner but boy was I ecstatic!!! Obviously it meant Helmet was now the headliner.
***Super crazy side note: I wouldn't be ridiculous enough to ca...

Yeah it is. And I work the next day. That's alright though. Plus, I'm not sure I really see it being as late as 11. Maybe 10:30. There are five bands total and the doors open at 6, so show probably starts around 7. I'm thinking I'll stay for Filter. I actually enjoyed Short Bus back in the 90...

I freaking LOVE Helmet. In fact I only found this thread through a search. Missed it the first time around. They'll be here in J-ville in two nights. Can't wait!! Kinda hard to find setlists for them for this tour. Have only found one. I'm thinking it may be a fairly Betty heavy set, since the...

America with Bob Welch opening -- June 1st, 1979 at the Centroplex.
My first heavy shows were April Wine at the Centroplex on June 26th, 1981, and then Blue Oyster Cult with Foghat opening on Oct. 4th, 1981 at the Centroplex, and I was HOOKED after that!!!...

Great pics and I think it will look pretty cool when full of people. Just now noticed one thing though for the first time and have not seen mentioned before. It looks like the folks in the upper southern corners of the east and west upper decks will not be able to see either video board. The fifth ...

No way to pick just one on any of these types of lists, for me at least. Here's another fricking gorgeous one. I'm sure a bunch of MB posters have heard this one at some point. Ironically, fairly heavy lyrical content here as well.

Getting back to Exodus. It's a damn shame just how underrated they are. They were right there with the "Big Four" at the forefront of the thrash movement. They never gained the popularity of those four but man, they sure have put out some phenomenal metal over their careers and especially the last...

My absolute favorite band in the early 80's. Was a big fan in the Breaker and Restless & Wild days, before they gained some moderate popularity with Balls To The Wall. Their headlining show at the Saenger in '85 is still today one of the three best shows I've eve...
