Photo highlights of Days of the Doomed III – day 2

The second day of Days of the Doomed III was a long day, filled with a diverse selection of bands at The Blue Pig in Cudahy, Wisc. It was also the night of the Super Moon. I don’t know if the moon had anything to do with it, but there were a few technical glitches. I didn’t get photos of everyone, and for some reason I can’t find some of my photos. I blame the moon! If I do find them, I will update the gallery.

Overall, I enjoyed the fest and met lots of interesting people. I got to meet people in person that I had only previously known online. It felt like a reunion. Everyone should thank Mike and Christine Smith and all the people involved in putting Days of the Doom together. It is a labor of love. Hopefully it will continue for years to come.

Here are some of my best photos from Saturday.


Photo highlights of Days of the Doomed III – day 1

Here are just a few of my favorite photos that I took during the first day of Days of the Doomed Fest III in Cudahy, Wisc. at The Blue Pig Tavern. No review now; actually I don’t feel qualified to do that. But I did enjoy every band I saw on Friday, which was a surprise for this black metal wretch.

Days of the Doom 3 tickets on sale Dec. 1

Unless you are planning a wedding, June 2013 might seem pretty far off. But for the organizers of Days of the Doomed 3 (or III if you like your numerals Roman), June can’t get here soon enough.

Billed as the biggest doom fest in the midwest, DOTD3 will take place on June 21 and 22 at the Blue Pig in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Tickets for this two day celebration of the riff and distortion go on sale December 1, 2012 and are expect to move swiftly! A two day pass is $50 and single day tickets are $30.

The lineup so far includes Penance, Victor Griffin’s new group In-Graved, Dream Death, Iron Man, Pale Divine, The Gates of Slumber, Chowder, Kings Destroy, Orodruin, Earthen Grave, Argus, King Giant, Whaler, Beelzefuzz, Venomous Maximus, Moon Curse, Hollow Leg, and Gorgantherron. According to organizer Mercyful Mike Smith, one more band will be announced sometime in January. You will just have to trust him that whoever it is will be killer.

I can’t think of a better holiday gift for the doom metal aficionado in your life or yourself than some tickets to this event. Besides, Milwaukee in June is reportedly quite lovely. Check out a preview of some of the bands playing in the video below. And then go over to this link and grab a ticket for yourself and a 21+ sexy loved one.

By the way, I wrote about DOTD2 last year. This thing is legit.
