Motorhead is coming back to Madison!

Motorhead 9/10 @ the Orpheum

I just found out Motorhead is finally returning to Madison in September. In addition to being one of the greatest and most influential rock and roll bands of all time they have not been to Madison since the 90’s when they played that short lived club at University and Lake whose name I cannot recall. Opening the show is the Misfits, Airbourne, Valiant Thorr, and Yearlong Divide. Tickets go on sale August 1st.

Between Motorhead, The Roots for free at Willow Island and the Forward Music Fest on 9/19-20 September is shaping up to be an incredible month of live music for Madison.

I bet the members of Motorhead can kick the asses of the members of The Hold Steady.

Holy crap!

Oh this is bad. I wanted to see the Neil Hamburger/Pleaseeasaur/Nice Peter show at the High Noon that night. I hope I can make it to both.

Oh man! Motorhead's European tour has Danko Jones opening. They should be on the American tour, that would be unstoppable.

There was this girl in college - I knew it was love when the college newspaper asked, "What three albums would you take to a desert island?" and she replied, "Any three Motorhead albums."

To quote Belinda Carlisle, "I get weak..."

Yeah I had the pleasure of seeing Danko open up for Turbonegro a few years ago in Minneapolis. To say he brought it would be an egregious understatement. While I have no desire to see the Misfits of the 21st century milking the 80’s and I never head of Yearlong Divide, I can attest to the fact Valient Thorr does totally kick ass. They are a fine musical cross between MC5, Iron Maiden and Black Flag backed up by anti-imperialist working class politics and Viking imagery. I know that sounds fucking weird, but trust me it works. Although I must admit Valient Thorr’s new album, Immortalizer, is their weakest to date and the album art is the most garish thing this side of a Drive By Truckers album cover.

Well I put it in my initial post, but to repeat tickets on sale Aug. 1st. The show was booked by Frank Productions, not True Endeavors.

Probably because there is no such band. It's Year Long Disaster. I know nothing about them, but a friend of mine was really looking forward to their show in Madison a few months ago. I think it was canceled.
