If you're a fan of live rock shows, this spring in Springfield it's gonna be a bit off the hook. Several shows have been lined up and there's more to come. First up, prepare for Pop Evil taking over at Boondocks off N. Dirsken Wednesday March 27th. They'll be joined by Otherwise and Crackjaw. Tickets are only 10 bux! That's three bands for $10! Then, the following day at Boondocks, one of the goddesses of metal Maria Brink and her band In This Moment will tear up the stage. They'll be joined by Love and Death and All Hail the Yeti. That show, Thursday March 28th, is $15 in advance, $17 day of. Tickets are on sale now! Get them while you can. We're told there will be more announcements in the very near future, so keep it close with Springfield's Concert Leader, 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station!
Keep the mill going
In fine Maynard style, he's ignited the rumor mill on the possibility of new Tool sometime, but just last week he said there will be nothing new in 2013. Speaking to SPIN magazine, who is hosting Puscifer's latest EP, Maynard says there are a basket of noodles when it comes to Tool jamming sessions, just noodles, no dishes. That'll keep the Maynard maggots busy for a bit.
There's trouble on team Van Halen. It appears David Lee Roth is sharing his concerns with the media that he wants to welcome back original bassist Michael Anthony, though he acknowledges that Eddie has his own vision which includes having his son Wolfgang get some of that Van Halen money. Roth tells Rolling Stone that Anthony had a great voice for back up harmonies. He also wants the band to write some real new music and not just rehash old demos and he wants the band to travel to more countries.
