I'm totally geeked. Gravity Kills, my favorite band until they broke up in Jan '03, are playing a reunion show on Oct 28. Sure, it's in St. Louis, but now that I live in Chicago that's only like a 5-hour drive. And I'll have to take a day off from work. Totally worth it.
See, I was a hardcore fan of these guys. How hardcore? In college I made this fansite (and I'm not ashamed today), which led to meeting the band. At one show I hung out with the band on their tour bus for like 2 hours. Good guys, they are. Damn, that was like 6 years ago.
My job hasn't sent me out-of-town in almost a year. But now they're talking about sending some of us out again. Timing, huh? I think I'm safe, but I need to nail this date down at work to be sure. No work-travel for Grant.
Anyway, I have live mp3s of the band, if you want to hear what's got me buzzing. Industrial-rock-pop, I guess you could say they are. Lots of samples and guitars, but no heavy-metal screaming. Check 'em out.
