    You know I'll be there. Ahem, I now I must hate you for reminding me of the time change. BUT, errrm, I thought the "fall back" was later?? It used to always be Halloween weekend, but I thought the light gods that be gave us an extra week as of last year... :cry:

    Damnit.....I can't make it.
    I'll be in Hawaii, so I guess it's not all bad.

    Have a great show.
    I think you should incorporate a watermelon into your costume somehow, Lotesto.

    Probably not going to make this one, though I did recently see Slick give a seminar on how to rock when they played with a few high school kid's bands at the Clearwater Theater a few weeks ago. They always put on a great show.

    I'm glad I had a chance to make it out to the show since I missed the last Ion Vein appearance at City Limits a few months back.

    I took some pics if anyone is interested.

    It was good to see Sacred Dawn again, too. There are some new faces in the band (not in this picture tho').

    I've also added a feed page to my site for anyone who would like to to subscribe to my oh so very exciting updates. :loco: The feed is pretty basic at the moment and I haven't thoroughly tested it with a wide range of readers but it seems to be working for the most part with the IE reader. There may be bugs to work out so please bear with me.

    Thanks

    Great pics Rebecca! I saw you up front but never made it over to say hello. Sorry!

    Loved the "Halloween" stage setup. Was good to see SD with their new drummer, Eddie. Their holiday appropriate cover of "See You In Hell" at the end was freakin' AWESOME. Unfortunately I had to leave during Ion Vein's set, but their energy on stage never let up for the tunes I was able to hear!

    Great pics, Rebecca!

    So who won the costume contest?
    Or was there one at all?

    SD's cover of "See You in Hell" is pretty sweet.
    I honestly hate that song though. Beavis and Butthead ruined it for me.
    Ha Ha!

    ^^There were about six people total in costume, including myself. Since I had to leave during Ion Vein I'm not sure if there was a contest, but I doubt it! Haha. Lothar did a fine job pelting people with candy though!

    Who was the guy (or gal) dressed as The Reaper? Anyone know?

    The 'ween decorations on the stage were awesome. I got pelted with some of that candy too. Haha

    Thanks for checking out the pics!

    ^^I have no idea. That guy/girl came up to me and shook my hand...probably because I was one of the few dressed to the max. He/she didn't stay very long...

    One of Saturday night's mysteries...SHOW YOURSELF!

    Great shots, Rebecca, nice to see you out at the show! I tapped
    you to saw hi but you were scurrying by and don't think you
    recognized me! haha

    Sacred Dawn and Slick kicked ass....and SD did a killer job decorating
    the stage....I walked in after running out for a bit and was like WOW,
    that's f'ing cool!!

    Buzznews.net did a really nice review of our portion of the show but
    did give SD and Slick a nice shout out...check it out here:
    Ion Vein Leads Metal March on Hallow's Eve

    Thanks to everyone that came out, it was a great crowd and a great time! :headbang:
