el paso loves the metal. My band played there at Moontime pizza. Cool people. Good pizza. We played with a wannabe TOOL band. After the show we hung out with them at some dude's house where they snorted nose candy as this one creepy dude showed me his skull that he had purchased. Not sure if he drank beer from it though. One can always hope.
majority of the music scene there is literally like stepping into 1982. it's insane. i go back and KLAQ is still playing the same tracks as when i left. guaranteed to hear queensriech, ac/dc, ozzy and scorpions - on the hour, every hour
it's cause there's not shit to do in EP so when there's a show everyone just goes ballistic. I remember literally making myself sick because i was so dehydrated after seeing Eye Hate God, and they were the first act.
rob is correct. el paso is hessian heaven. a million people who live and die metal. dio could retire a gazillionaire down there. the best place i could dream of spending my formative years. remember omar from his h.s. band days and skating.
Dude, El Paso is the place for anything heavy or noisy. Not to equate Mars Volta with 80's metal acts, but look at any of your old Scorpions, Ratt, or Judas Priest tour shirts. There's always like 3 nights in El Paso to meet the demand.
They drink thier beer out of skulls down there. Ask Pougemahone, his rank ass is from that miserable burg.
