First of all, if you’ve never felt something around people going hard to see a mutual favorite band in concert, then I’m not sure if I trust you.

Secondly, what a WEEK for shows. All That Remains, Suicide Silence, Matt Pike, Born of Osiris (!), and Primus (approved by Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee) all happened at some point in the past few days, and honestly, now 2022’s just getting started. Vio-lence is the only show for me this week, which is okay since Maryland Deathfest is pulling everyone down to Baltimore this weekend. Please now proceed towards enjoying and browsing through the rest of this fantastic curated by me concert calendar. I hope my show recommendations and highlights help lead you towards attending some shows. And thank you for reading this. Ya’ll simply are the absolute BEST.
