Clutch Rocked the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids [Video]

When I asked for tickets to the September 13 Clutch show at the Orbit Room, Metalhead Ned looked at me funny. I get it, my look doesn't scream "ROCK!!!". However, to my credit, I knew one Clutch song (Yes, "Spacegrass". Which honestly, I always thought was titled "Jesus on the Dashboard"...)

Mostly, I explained, my boyfriend wanted to go. "Yeah, he seems like a Clutch fan", was Ned's response. "Um," I thought, "What does that even mean? Because he has a beard?"

After seeing the show, I realize it's a pretty awesome compliment! Because Clutch fans are some of the most passionate, excited, loyal fans I've seen!

Get Ready for Chevelle’s Visit to Grand Rapids with Some Live Videos

I'm really looking forward to checking out Chevelle again in a few weeks, when they hit The Orbit Room on April 21st!  I've seen them a couple of times, and they're a great band.

The last time I saw them was on the Carnival of Madness tour a couple years ago, with Halestorm and Cavo.  Chevelle rocked the show, and I'm looking forward to hearing some of the new songs from their upcoming album, "La Gargola", which comes out on April 1st.  No joke.
