Saint Vitus @ Saint Vitus 9/25/2012
Saint Vitus

Saint Vitus, formed in the late 1970s and back from a nearly 16-year layoff, has become a touring and recording band again. (Its new album, "Lillie: F-65," is named after a barbiturate.) Mr. Chandler's long hair and beard went gray some years ago -- he's 54 -- and he relates to an audience in nudgy, sarcastic uptalk. It's the opposite of his riffs, which are simple and concise, often very slow but occasionally fast, and self-contained.... The riffs are based in an offshoot blues language that descends directly from Black Sabbath. Black Sabbath recorded a song in 1972 called "St. Vitus Dance." St. Vitus's Dance is a neurological disorder, also known as Sydenham Chorea, associated with an uncontrollable jerking of the feet, hands and face. Saint Vitus was a fourth-century Sicilian martyr who became the patron saint of entertainers and epileptics.

Saint Vitus, the excellent metal bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, that opened in the spring of last year, was named after the band. Its proprietors have wanted to bring the father to the son from the start, and on Tuesday their wish came true. -[NY Times]

And to answer two pertinent questions: yes, Saint Vitus did play "Saint Vitus" at Saint Vitus on 9/25 and no, it didn't rip a hole in the space-time continuum. But the doom legends did rip, though, along with dependably great sets from fellow doom favorites Weedeater and Sourvein. Pictures from the show adorn this post.

If you missed the Saint Vitus cubed experience, you can still catch Saint Vitus on Friday (9/28) when they support Down at Best Buy Theater on 9/28. Tickets are still available.

More pics and video from the show are below.

How many sausages does it take to change a light bulb?

It takes 10 sausages to change a light bulb: 1 to bring the straws, 6 to use the glory hole, 1 is clearly the catcher (amirite), and 2 to keep watch unless any heteros come by

@1:17 - How many straight people actually would think to use the word "heteros"? Zero. I'm proud of you for outing yourself.

Posted by Anonymous | September 27, 2012 1:32 PM

^ LULZ apparently not, but it's good to know that you are so attentive to word choices. Bet you just as concerned with your style of dress and such. Most homosexuals are pretty wrapped up in observing styles of dress, and word choices.

@1:38 Yes, that's what I was saying - takes one to know one. You outed yourself, and I'm saying I'm proud of you. I can see how it looked sarcastic but it wasn't.
