ATTENTION Chicagoland Tomahawk fans. Turns out the Toolahawk show scheduled in Normal IL for Aug 27 has been cancelled. Instead join Tomahawk at the Empty Bottle in Chicago for a special show at 11pm !!!!! The band will go on after the Ken Vandermark 5.
Get the full intimate Thawk set!!!!! The Chicago Toolahawk show on the 29th will go on as scheduled.
It's August! Back to school time. Time to rush out and get the new Dälek and Phantomsmasher CDs!!!!
Look for Dälek tour dates in the calendar section.
Coming soon, new Isis and Moist Boyz!
Oh and it is not necessary to send us e-mails apologizing to Tomahawk for TOOL crowds. The band is going over better than expected and enjoys the jeering as much as the cheering. The band is not going to hold it against your city. They are big boys.
Celebrate the new ISIS cd "OCEANIC" on September 5th at the Middle East in Cambridge Mass. !!!!!!!!!
