OMFG! Turbonegro is coming to Denver! So's Bassnectar and Soundgarden. See who else...
Turbonegro is finally coming to Colorado! Granted, it's with the new frontman -- whose name I haven't even bothered to learn yet because, well, he's got some big shoes to fill taking over for Hank von Helvete -- but it's still Turbonegro! Last time I saw these dudes, they literally rocked my face off. It was the last night at SXSW, and I was trashed off my ass from a days-long bender. Anyhow, after taunting my friends back home that I was seeing Turbonegro and they weren't, I broke my glasses in a pit I'm sure I was too old to be in, screaming my lungs out to "All My Friends Are Dead." I walked back to the hotel bruised and half blind like Mr. Magoo afterward. It was fucking awesome! Can hardly wait to do it again.
