Loud Rock Charts: 4/30

With these last adds/charts comes the end of April, and the beginning of something beautiful. And metal. Can we dub this month “Metal May”? Because there are some seriously mindblowing tours coming to the Bay Area and Santa Cruz over the course of the next 4 weeks.


We’ve got Gorod/Fallujah on May 3rd, Cancer Bats/Kvelertak/Black Tusk on May 7th, Arsis on May 16th, Cannibal Corpse/Napalm Death/Immolation on May 17th, Dillinger Escape Plan/Faceless/Royal Thunder on May 19th, Kylesa on May 24th, Opeth/Katatonia on May 26th, and finally Decapitated on May 30th.


I don’t know when May decided to go the way of the headbangers, but I sure as hell am not complaining.

Although Bleeding Rainbow was not able to come in to the studio for a live interview, KZSC managed to interview Rob Garcia and Sarah Everton from the Philadelphia-based band at the Crepe Place a few minutes right before their show was about to start.

Uncoiled Spring

If our spring program schedule were in a bakery, we’d be headed for the day-old discount bin soon. Hard to imagine that spring is already winding down, but there are a scant six weeks or so left before thoughts of graduation, summer vacations and doing laundry will become reality. Take the time to explore some of the new shows on The Great 88 while you can including a wide variety of late-night offerings. And if you like rockin’ to your old favorites, make sure you let us know.

See the complete current spring lineup on our Schedule Page and unwind with KZSC.
