Ticket Giveaway - Boris / Torche / Lair of the Minotaur

I’m giving away two pairs of tickets for the Boris show this Sunday night at the Echoplex. Opening the show is Torche and Lair of the Minotaur. It promises to be a night of seriously heavy riffs. Torche’s new record is called Meanderthal (which is pretty great) and Lair of the Minotaur has a great band name and (just to pick one) a song on their new album called, “Black Viper Barbarian Clan.” Boris is from Japan and has been around since the early 1990s. Their new record has a song called “My Neighbor Satan.” Here’s a pretty good quote from the All Music Guide: “They are still heavier than God fronting Blue Cheer, but they don't forget that songs usually contain recognizable melodies.”

To win these tickets send me an email [dukeufo at hotmail] with your favorite metal band name of all time (doesn’t have to be your favorite band, just your favorite name). Please put Boris in the subject line. The contest closes Friday at Noon.
