You’ve seen me talking about Iron Atrocity, the free compilation of the Pittsburgh metal scene many times before, and for good reason. There’s lots of great stuff on the first volume (don’t belive me? Download it here!), and there promises to be just as much awesomeness when the second one rolls around.
Innervenus, the local record label and music collective responsible for assembling this compilation, held a Kickstarter fundraising campaign recently to help finance the production of the CD. That was mostly successful — at least, enough pledges were made to cover about two-thirds of their target, while the Innervenus staff ended up supplementing the remainder out of their own pockets.
Well, some nice folks decided to throw together another benefit show to help offset some of those costs, and that show is happening this Friday night.
- Leprosy Facebook
- Lycosa Facebook
- Molasses Barge Facebook (and by the way, you might remember I talked about this band’s live show back when they were doing the previous Iron Atrocitybenefit show)
Spitupon(** UPDATE: I have learned that Spitupon had to drop out of the line-up for this show but you can still check them out on Facebook)
The Smiling Moose Facebook
If that isn’t already too much excitement for you to handle, there’s plenty more on the way…
