Dillinger Escape PlanCalculators out.....

Genghis TronGetting all morse code-y with DEP is Genghis Tron, who recently posted "Board Up The House" off of their new upcoming record for Relapse. Check it at their MySpace. Also, you can catch Mookie Singerman's (Genghis Tron) awesome monthly column "Route 666" in Decibel Magazine.

Ire Works = Record of the Year

Dillinger DESTROYED Blender Theater last night. After a creepy silent film, then some rumbling and feedback, and then two seconds of silence, the band surged fwd all at once, screaming, jumping and slicing the air with guitars. The place literally EXPLODED -- bodies flew while knuckleheads demonstrated their styles in the pit.

The 'Plan played some songs from the new album, which sounded great alongside their best such as "When Good Dogs do bad things" from Irony is a Dead Scene, and other greats from Calculating, etc.

Singer Greg and guitarist Ben jumped into the crowd every other song without regard to anyone's safety and the action was great to watch. They ended with "Sunshine the Werewolf," Greg blowing fireballs into the crowd from a torch, which he actually handed to some kid to hold at one point, and then nearly set the crowd on fire with a final FWOOOSHH!

Now that's what I call a SHOW.
