Trivium and Toothgrinder Announce Brief Tour


Speaking of Trivium…

Of course it’s great when you pay to see a show and every band on the bill is killer. But they can’t all be winners, and it’s also great when you can leave early and beat traffic.

So even though this tour is technically being headlined by Bullet for My Valentine, who I’ve always thought of as the poor man’s Trivium, I think it’s worth going. I unfortunately missed out on Trivium the last time they came to town, but Vince tells me they’re better live now than they’ve ever been before. And Toothgrinder are always a treat. If the fact that you’re also giving money to Matt Tuck bothers you that much, I dunno, donate some extra cash to charity to offset the negative karma or whatever.
