    I was really looking forward to seeing these guys live but they scheduled their show on the 21st at JJ Kellys in Lansing, same Saturday as Powerfest. Atheist's set ends at 11:50pm and Winterkill isn't scheduled to hit the stage until midnight which in "real time" means 12:30 or so.

    Anyone plan on making the 20 minute trip after the show?

    Just curious.

    Yeah that sucks they did that, I'm probably going to end up cutting out of Powerfest early to do this cause honestly Winterkill > Atheist and this is probably my one and only shot to see them live.

    Well I'm not missing Atheist for anything, but I might end up at JJ Kelly's after the show as well.

    For all you "out of towners":
    Winterkill was IMO one of the best original acts to come out of Chicago. They broke up a couple of years ago and they're doing a reunion show on April 21st.

    Damn. I saw them years and years ago... opening for Firehouse.
    Didn't know they rescheduled this show. Wasn't it originally 3-24?
    Might just have to miss it...

    Yeah but they re-scheduled it, at least it's not on the 24th of March anymore. Now I can go see the G3 tour. :headbang:

    Keep in mind that not everyone here is from Chicago. That said, I think Winterkill is okay, but I'm sure as hell not going out of my way to see them... I'd rather go party after Powerfest.

    I wonder why they would reschedule it this day, it'd seem to me a majority of their fan base would be out at powerfest that night....

    Speaking of old local bands, most of you probably don't remember this band, but THE PLAGUE are reuniting to open for TROUBLE at Nite Caps. VERY weird. Not a band that I would expect would ever come back around.

    :err: I just don't understand the logic behind booking a show like this on the same date so close to Mokena.

    They'd have better luck booking the show on the Thursday before as a sort of pre-party to Powerfest...to take advantage of the Pfest crowd...and I would've been happy to arrange that for them at the Colliseum next door to the Pearl Room.

    Oh well...I hope the first three bands enjoy playing in front of 10 people...MAYBE. :p

    heh, Winterkill is the only band on that bill that I wouldn't be interested in seeing.

    Bummer that they couldn't do this show on Thursday instead, as a pre-party sort of thing. ;)

    EDIT: doh! rob beat me to the suggestion ;)

    EDIT again: actually, I wonder how many of the death metal haters are going to attend Day One of Powerfest, and then attend the power metal show on Sunday?

    Winterkill will still be together after Powerfest weekend... Atheist will not. It's their last show, ever. You'll be skipping out on a major part of the history of a very esteemed band.

    Yeah that's super annoying they did that. You gotta wonder what they were thinking on this one.
