Pentagram at Webster Hall (by Keith Marlowe)
Pentagram

Pentagram is back in action and will play Europa in NYC tonight (1/6). It's one of a pair of dates scheduled for the legendary doom band who also play Club Hell in Providence, RI on 1/7. Hull, Judas Priestess, and Bezoar are also on the NYC bill, and Pentagram (Bobby Liebling, Victor Griffin, Greg Turley, and Tim Tomaselli) will play both their classic material, as well as new stuff from their forthcoming LP due via Metal Blade this year. Tickets are still available, and I have FOUR pairs available for giveaway! Details are at the bottom of this post.

In other news, Hull is playing the Europa show, but are otherwise taking some time off from shows to concentrate on new material. They report that "their sophomore full-length will be co-produced by Brett Romnes (who played drums on the band's Viking Funeral EP, initially self-released in 2007) and mixed by Bill Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Neurosis, EHG, Melvins et al). A July 2011 street date is expected. The band plans to start tracking as soon as they return from a two week stint to SXSW with Batillus from March 11th - 27th." Expect some new songs tonight, much like the band played at Public Assembly when they supported Kylesa.

Video of one of those new songs, along with other video and the contest details, below...

one thing with europa is you never know what time bands start...could be 7:30 or if the bar ain't doing too well could be later

Does anyone have an idea of set times? Thanks!

10:30: I'm curious as to how the bar not doing well would affect that.

Saw these guys 2 years ago at Webster. I'll tell you one thing, Bobby looks like he could be in his 70's but performs like he should be in his 30's!

1:57: No, because he's right. But you're now probably one of them too! Hooah!

That's what happens if you eat falafel sandwiches and burritos at the same time.

Pentagram were supposed to be on at 10:00, but didn't get onstage until 12:00, and then a technical issue with the guitar delayed things until 12:30.

Fucking great show, though. "Sign of The Wolf" was the last song. Bobby is amazing, hasn't lost a thing vocally.
