Argonauts at Union Pool, March 2012 (more by Di Lynn Ring)
Let's be honest, supporting Torche is not the most enviable of positions when you've got a sold-out show. It takes a band with balls to play right before them, and luckily the first of two openers for the sold-out show at Saint Vitus on March 2 has been revealed. Argonauts (mems of Revocation, East of The Wall, Burnt By The Sun, Municipal Waste) will play direct support to Torche, with more bands still to be revealed. As stated above, tickets are sold out, but as sponsors of the show, BrooklynVegan will be giving away a few pairs for free. Details on how to enter are below.
BV and Invisible Oranges are also proud sponsors of upcoming shows at Saint Vitus with Deafheaven / Sannhet, Acid King, and most imminently, two nights with YOB that kick off on Sunday (2/10). Tickets for all of those shows are still available.
UPDATE 6PM: Tonight's St. Vitus show (Dept. of Health, ANASAZI, Blackboot, A Truth) has been cancelled due to Nemo.
In related metal news, as we just updated in our list of Nemo-related cancellations, we thought we'd let you know that tonight's scheduled Gojira / Devin Townsend / Altas Moth show at Irving Plaza has been postponed till February 19. That's one day after their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Torche track stream and contest details are below.
