IF YOU LIKE…METAL/ROCK:
Friday February 21st has Russian Circles at The Middle East in Cambridge, Mass.
Russian Circles’ newest album incorporates a lot of skill and diversity in their tracks. What is really cool and unique about this lyric-less album is how seamless the songs are. All of the songs could be one long piece, but they sound great as individual songs, as well.
Performing with them is KEN Mode, an epic hard-rock group from Canada, and headlining is Inter Arma.
