Blue Oyster Cult: tonight, At The Casino Queen

Well, I waited too long. Couldn't get any interested parties to join me, and when I finally talked the lovely Mrs. Old Skool into going, this show was sold out. The Casino Queen's Club Sevens room is a fairly small, intimate room, so if you are going, this should be a treat.

I've seen the band a number of times, although admittedly not in the last decade or so. They still have key members/songwriters Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma, though, so methinks the band shall still sound great. I always thought they were one of those bands that were misunderstood as a metal band. They really play melodic classic rock.

They'll be back in STL for RibFest on May 31, with Foghat (How that is even a band anymore is beyond me. Lonesome Dave and Rod Price passed in the last few years. Beware.)

Here's some videos to start the weekend. Great facial hair:
