Rodrigo y Gabriela

this is quite a treat, as it was a last-minute addition to my concert calendar that already includes Alice In Chains, Megadeth, and Faith No More.

Rodrigo y Gabriela are an acoustic guitar duo who originally met while they were playing in the same thrash metal band. I just started listening to them a few weeks ago, but I’m not too concerned that I won’t know any of their songs, seeing as how all their songs are instrumentals. they do an awesome cover of Metallica’s “Orion” which I’m hoping they will play tonite. in addition to Metallica, they also list Slayer and Testament as their main influences.

also appearing is The Alex Skolnick Trio…of the Testament Skolnicks?!? THAT’S RIGHT! so, if you were hoping to see Alex Skolnick with Testament this month, too fucking bad! just kidding folks, but yeah, he won’t be playing again with Testament until later this summer. special thanks to my good buddy, Kolo Toure Kardashian for the ticket.
