I don't know if they are local or not, but an ICED EARTH tribute band has a show coming up at NITE CAP. Believe you me, being in a tribute band myself, I know that people have varying opinions of them. For me, playing in a SAVATAGE tribute band is 100% different than playing in a tribute to a currently active band. There is demand out there for a proper SAVATAGE reunion. (I have video to prove that even Bob Byrne was bopping his head along to STRANGE WINGS at Ragnarokkr, though he will vehemently deny it!!! ) Anyhow, I don't know how I feel about a tribute to an active underground metal band. I can see having a tribute to an active "big" band, like Metallica, Maiden, Priest, etc, as you can't see those bands play in a small bar. Though an Iced Earth tribute playing at a venue which isn't much smaller than IE themselves would normally play????? Just curious what your thoughts were on this.
