Ticket Giveaway: Yob at The Mothlight

Want to get up close and personal with one of the most well appreciated bands on the doom metal scene?  This hardened Eugene, Oregon trio is coming to The Mothlight Tuesday November, 10. You will not find an experience with a band more true to itself than Yob is. As the show page says, “It’s all too rare for a band to reach such moderate success and massive acclaim based on sheer quality of music. There’s certainly no overt commercial bow on any of YOB’s five albums. Songs commonly stretch beyond the twenty minute mark, and to date there’s never been a radio edit or any effort to appease anyone but the band’s muse. Indeed, the shortest song on latest album opus The Great Cessation clocks in at over seven and a half minutes of bludgeoning heaviness and cosmic wandering.”

Not only will you rock out to Yob, California based sludge metal duo Black Cobra and chaotically-aligned, surprise-attack, metal group U.S. Christmas will play opening sets as well.

Want to get in on this evening of mind altering metal? Express your excitement in the comment section on this page and you will be entered in a drawing to win a pair of tickets. Enter by Sunday night for your chance to win one of two pairs of tickets to this intense, likely to sell out, show.
