Mastodon to Perform at Georgia Aquarium


Prepare for what could be the most epic performance of “Blood and Thunder” ever: Mastodon have announced a special VOD show, to be filmed at the Georgia Aquarium.

If you’re thinking “Wait a sec, isn’t all that noise gonna bother the poor fish?”, you can rest easy: it’s an acoustic performance.

Still. If they can scream “WHITE! WHALE! HOLY! GRAIL!” in front of an actual whale, this will blow those GWAR, Dying Fetus, and Morbid Angel Fishcenter Live performances out of the water (no pun intended). And yes, I checked — they do have a white whales at the Georgia Aquarium. Small ones, but still.

The performance will stream via Dreamstage for 72 hours starting Friday, July 16 at 12:00 AM EDT. Tickets and merch bundles are available here; $1 from each poster sold will be donated to the Georgia Aquarium.
