Incoming: D12, Jedi Mind Tricks, Children of Bodom at the Glass House--Plus Free Warped Tour Pre-Party Tonight!
A lot of things have changed since that publicity photo of D12 was taken--most notably, the death of group member Proof in 2006, not long after finally hitting the mainstream with the goofy-fun video for "My Band." But the hip-hop crew consisting of Eminem and his long-time pals from Detroit--surviving MCs Bizarre, Kon Artis, Kuniva and Swifty--is nonetheless moving forward, despite Eminem's recently rejuvenated solo career. Eminem's talking about a new D12 album, and a late summer tour has just been announced, with a stop at the Glass House on August 19. Tickets are $12, and on-sale tomorrow, June 26. No word on if Eminem will be at this date of the tour or any others (but probably not, one would imagine).
Some more new Glass House shows after the jump!
Another veteran hip-hop group, Jedi Mind Tricks, released their sixth studio album last November (A History of Violence), and come to the Glass House on Friday, August 21. Tickets ($16 in advance, $18 at the door) are on sale now.
Finnish heavy metal band (are there four more appealing words in any language?) Children of Bodom have the best album titles pretty much ever: Hate Crew Deathroll, Are You Dead Yet? and Blooddrunk. They're also coming to the Glass House, for two dates, in fact; October 10 and October 11. Skeletonwitch (who are at Chain Reaction on July 15) open on Oct. 10; Austrian Death Machine and Holy Grail support on Oct. 11. $25 tickets go on sale this Saturday, June 27 at noon.
Also they have a free show tonight (!), a "Warped Tour Pre Party" with Finch, Kidneys, OPM and Plague Vendor. That starts at 7 p.m.
