Mr. Bungle recently announced a short fall tour with several shows hitting the east coast.

Greg Puciato is a man of many bands, and styles, from the metal of Killer Be Killed, to the Jimmy Jam influenced electro offering The Black Queen, his most recent work with Jerry Cantrell, and of course, the unbridled Dillinger Escape Plan, his solo offering is a bit more straightforward, with hints of his vast catalogue spread throughout. Don’t miss your chance to see this man live and in-your-face.
Ministry and the beloved Uncle Al stopped to perform at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD on 5/3/2023. The band are currently on tour in the US with supporting acts Gary Numan and Front Line Assembly. Of course, being a long-time fan of Ministry, I was there in the photo pit losing my mind.

Ministry sounded tight as ever and the setlist was top notch. Mission accomplished.
