Mung, the Devil must have been listening when I cursed my brains out for missing the first Dimmu go around. Then thought I deserved a second chance and made it possible. Cant wait for Danzig and Moonspell too man! Woohoo! Now if we can get Behemoth back here again I shall be sitting on cloud 666 with a sh** eatin grin!

^cloud 666? How many magical clouds ARE THERE?!!? hah

Don't worry Kalis, I'll probably never meet the concert organizers, so I think your'e safe for now lol.

Godamn, now that I've calmed down, I just realized how great a year this is gonna be for me..

July 2nd, I have the Summer Slaughter tour, with Vader, Crytopsy, all that good stuff...

The Mayhem tour is comin up. (Only goin for Machine Head and Mastadon, and to throw a bottle of piss at SLipknot, but I need at least one big concert every year to get me some memories..)

Whenever that Motorhead and co. concert comes Around, I'm goin to that.

Led Zepp might tour? I stress might, just rumors right now.

ACDC farewell tour will be a must...

and seeing Lamb of GOd again will be a blast..

And now THIS!!! I love every band on this bill, so the only downside is me having to figure out when the hell I'm gonna drink my beers!

Now Playing: Halo of Locusts- "Dixie Whisky"

The Congress Theatre is one of the worst venues in Chicago. This isn't even worth going to because of that. This would have been much better at the House of Blues or Metro. I doubt it'll sell out here either.

I already have my tickets for Mayhem and Summer slaughter. The ACDC Led ZEPP and Motorhead tours are gonna get paid for by my dad(the man is responsible for my love of Metal, so It's only fitting we go to a few shows by the legends together...) , but I need to get a job in order to go to this thing and the LoG show that will EVENTUALLY get going.

Oh, and as for pre-loading... well, since I'm only 18, I usually rely on the kindness of strangers to buy my drinks for me; during the commotion of the concert, everybody is willing to help a minor get wasted, (What a great world we live in :] ) but I think I'll just slip in with a small bottle of strong Vodka somewhere this time(also a great way to get through Physics class!) and drink it on the go.

Oh, and I just found out the Abcence is touring with Amon Amarth! One more concert on the list, another 30 bucks wisely spent... :D

Now Playing: Tim Minchin- "If You Really loved me" (Check it out on youtube, hilarious sonofab****)

North SIde Kings knocked that big headed twat the f*** out, I'm not a fan of either band, so being non biased and watching the footage on youtube really made me appreciate the wild swing given by the NSK... Danzig is an old dried up fa**ot with a big head in my opinion...

Granted he has been involved (and still is I suppose) in some legendary music, but his whole outlook of himself and attitude stinks...

Do yourself a favour and search for Danzig gets knocked the f*** out on youtube.
