All Systems Are Go for Tonight’s 40th FMX Birthday Bash With Volbeat
This may be your last chance to catch a big outdoor concert in the Hub City until 2022.
From what we know about the band touring plans out there, there may not be another big outdoor show until May. We're lucky that we're going out with a bang with Lubbock favorites Volbeat. These guys have been pumping out great song after great song, and we expect you'll hear at least two of their new tracks at tonight's show.
It's going to be an interesting night as well. The openers are really out-of-the-box. Opening the show is Twin Temple, who describe their sound as "Satanic doo-wop." (Imagine Amy Winehouse, but with kinda metal lyrics.) I've had their CD in my player for a couple of years now and I love it.
Next up -- Mongolian rockers The Hu, who play on traditional instruments but have mega-metal cred by featuring Jacoby Shaddix, Lzzy Hale and Danny Case (From Ashes To New) guesting on their album. They're also featured on the latest Metallica project.
Let's also mention that it is the 40th FMX Birthday Bash. We'll be throwing out some stuff and kicking the party into high gear. So what about it, Lubbock? Are you going to rock tonight?
Before I give you the set times, I want to reinforce the fact that sometimes these are goals, and other times stage managers keep it on the dot.
