Saint Vitus @ Roadburn (the decline 88)
Saint Vitus

Hey doom fans! Are you sitting down? The legendary Saint Vitus has announced three east coast dates, including Europa in Brooklyn on Oct 16th. According to Blabbermouth, "these dates will mark frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich's (THE OBSSESSED, WINO, SPIRIT CARAVAN, PLACE OF SKULLS, THE HIDDEN HAND, PROBOT) first appearances in these cities with SAINT VITUS since 1987!" Tickets for the NYC show are on sale (though there seems to be a problem with Ticketweb at the moment). Support is still TBA, though Type O Negative and the "Misfits" (who are playing BB King's on Halloween) are opening the October 17th show in Worcester (weird lineup). We'll keep you posted when more details surface.

Wino will also be in NYC with his solo band less than one week before the NYC date, supporting Clutch. Tickets are still available for both dates at Irving Plaza, 10/9 here and 10/10 here.

Our man JJ Koczan recently caught Saint Vitus at Roadburn. Dates below...

"does anybody really care? this band drew 20 people 20 years ago."

Some people care, but obviously not a ton or they would be playing Webster Hall like Pentragram did.

I wonder if Saint Vitus owes Maryland Death Fest any money.

This show will def. sell out..
people care more about them now then they did 20 years ago when they opened for AF and the Mentors

No one ever mentions it, which is annoying, but the first singer, Scott Reagers, was way better, and so were the songs.

I saw the New Orleans show in April. It was astoundingly good. They smoked. If my fool ass had not already bought tickets and airfare to SF to see Jesus Lizard that same week, I would be at all three. I mean, for fuck's sake, I'm totally bummed out about the prospect of going to Frisco to see David Yow? What the hell does that tell you?
