ICP, Mushroomhead, and More Coming to The Orbit Room on Sept. 25!

When I first saw this show announced, I thought..."Well, that's interesting." Then I kinda sat back and figured that this is going to be one hell of a show. I am not an ICP at all, but I sure do love Mushroomhead. Bring the Rap and bring the Metal, cause ICP and Mushroomhead are coming to The Orbit Room on Sept. 25th at The Orbit Room!

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.

Limp Bizkit Coming to The Orbit Room on May 10th!

Before I became a Metal Head, I went through many different phases of music before I discovered the greatness and brutality that is metal. Limp Bizkit's Significant Other was the VERY first CD I ever bought, so there is a piece of my heart with these guys. After many rumors, new album, etc. Limp Bizkit is making a stop here in Grand Rapids!
