Yesterday, we announced our CMJ Metal Insider 2014 showcase, taking place on Wednesday, October 22nd at The Wick in Brooklyn. Turns out that’s only half of what we’re up to! Metal Insider is proud to announce that in conjunction with Megaforce Records, we’ll be presenting an exclusive screening of Scott Ian’s Swearing Words In Glasgow DVD. The event will take place at Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn from 3-6pm on Wednesday, 10/22, and is free and open to the public. We’d ask anyone heading out to RSVP to [email protected] so we know you’ll be coming.
In 2013, Scott Ian embarked on his first-ever spoken word tour, playing a handful of shows in Europe. In an interview with us earlier this year, Ian called doing spoken word “the most fun he had in 20 years,” after getting over the initial nervousness. He went on to bring his “Speaking Words” tour to America earlier this year. When we saw him perform at BB King’s in NYC, it was loose, informal, and very funny. He successfully crowd-funded a DVD version of a performance, which was recorded towards the end of the run in Glasgow, Scotland. It will be released on November 13th on Megaforce, but you’ll get to see it before anyone else on the 22nd!
Swearing Words in Glasgow is available for pre-order here. Once again, this is open to the public, but if you’re heading out, let us know by RSVPing to [email protected] We could think of far worse ways to spend a Wednesday afternoon than watching Ian’s DVD at New York’s best metal bar, and while you’re in Brooklyn, you should head over to Bushwick afterwards for our CMJ Metal Insider 2014 Showcase!
