Tour de Force



nightwish cutter

Some bands are obnoxiously bad, and some bands are just kinda annoying; like, if you’re at a bar and the DJ puts on Oceano, that shit could disrupt your conversation, but if that same DJ were to put on Nightwish, you could probably at least kinda-sorta block it out. I think that’s why I so rarely feel compelled to make fun of them; I can honestly forget that they’re there.

As for Kamelot, I know everything I need to know about Kamelot based on the fact that their name is Kamelot. They even spelled it with a fucking “K” to make extra sure that all anyone had to do to know what they sound like was was look at their name. And I actually appreciate such truth in advertising; it helps to ensure that I can go to my grave having never actually heard a Kamelot song, while simultaneously telling some virgin who loves RPGs too much, “Hey, this is EXACTLY the band you wanna listen to!” It lets everyone cut through the bullshit, y’know?

So, in short, if you want to go see these bands live, here’s your shot. I hope you have a nice time. Don’t feel compelled to let me know how it was, for I do not care.
