Tour de Force


  • Axl Rosenberg


I’ve never seen Weekend Nachos live, but I would very much like to someday. Relapse Records – who have had a fucking AMAZING 2009* -put out their album Unforgivable earlier this year, and it kills. If the band can do anything to re-create that energy in a live setting, I bet bucket loads of blood, sweat, and healthy releases of raw aggression will ensue.

The band is setting out on a tour at the end of the month, and, just my luck, it’s not coming close to New York – most of the dates are out west. But I implore you to go see Weekend Nachos if you can, so that I can live vicariously through you, my beloved readers.

*With all due respect to all the other labels that did excellent work this year, I think you could reasonably make a year-end top ten list just from Relapse’s ’09 output. Off the top of my head, they put out new records by Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Baroness, Black Anvil, Brutal Truth, Burnt by the Sun, Coalesce, Revocation, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, the aforementioned Weekend Nachos, and probably a bunch more shit I’m forgetting. And they were all awesome. Good job, guys and girls.
