7/31 Metal, Dammit. All of it…

Posted by novoscene on July 29, 2008

So if you don’t know by now, All Known Metal Bands is the best book in the entire universe for those quiet times spent communing with the porcelain gods. The new book by Oakland author Dan Nelson is an extensive listing of every single band to ever even think of strapping on the Doc Martins, growing out the long hair and naming themselves after some form of hellish catastrophe or another, all while cranking out loud as fuck power chords (read the Oakbook interview with the author here, and check the feature story in the current print edition.)

Nelson reads from his obsessive opus at Electric Works in San Fran on Thursday. The SF opening also features some of Nelson’s visual art-“24 Illustrations for Schubert’s Winterreise”-live music by Edmund Welles, the obligatory food and beer, and “Interactive metal activities for the family (including defacing property).” Is there even a question of where you should be Thursday night?-kwan
