Mr. Bungle recently announced a short fall tour with several shows hitting the east coast. The avant-garde thrash metal martyr’s will be kicking off the tour at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD on September 5th. This is a dream show for me and anyone that calls themselves a “metalhead.” The band’s lineup consists of original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance alongside Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Wow. That’s incredible.

Anyway, tickets for the show at Rams Head Live are available HERE. Tickets for all other shows on the fall tour are available HERE. Be sure to buy your tickets asap. I expect sold out venues and frenzied crowds. This tour will be historic. Come join us!

Puscifer will be making a stop at The Lyric in Baltimore, MD on 6/1/2023. The band, founded by Tool’s Maynard James Keenan and featuring British singer Carina Round with electro-wizard/guitar player Mat Mitchell, are touring behind their critically-acclaimed album, Existential Reckoning. Tickets for the show at The Lyric are available HERE.

Secret Agents. Dancing Aliens. Video Vignettes. Puscifer’s live outings aren’t really concerts but more of a music-meets-live theatre experience. As a writer recently said: “There are regular rock bands and then there is Puscifer.” Be sure to check out the Official Puscifer Website for music, videos, news, and tickets for all upcoming tour dates.

The former Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist, Greg Puciato, is doing his first tour in support of his pair of solo albums, with the most recent being 2022’s Mirrorcell. He will be stopping at Underground Arts in Philly on 5/22/2023. Tickets for his performance are available HERE. Be sure to check the Official Greg Puciato Website for music, videos, news, and tickets for all upcoming tour dates.

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.
