Maybe it's fitting that a city associated mainly with a huge tragedy would manage to put forth one of the world's more famous death metal bands? Incantation is a long-lasting legend of metal that hails from Johnstown, a town not so far from here that's known mainly for a killer flood caused by rich people. The band, over 20 years old now, has seen plenty of lineup changes, but frontman John McEntee has been the constant.
They play Saturday (July 10) at Belvedere's in what's a pretty massive metal bill: Ibex Moon Records Fest features six bands associated with the label. Also hailing from Johnstown is Funerus; Pittsburgh's Abysme (who contributed an MP3 Monday once) represents Pittsburgh.
It's $10 and over-21 only, sorry. Show starts right at 8 because, y'know, that's a lot of metal for one night!
