In probably one of the best last-minute announcements I could imagine, last night I got word that Anthrax’s Scott Ian will be bringing his Speaking Words North America tour to the ballroom at the Outer Space in Hamden, CT this Friday.
I’m in love with the spoken word narratives from people like Henry Rollins because musicians of their ilk have so many great stories to tell from their experience in the music industry. Unfortunately I never got to see Black Flag before I saw Henry’s spoken word. So for this Friday’s show with Scott Ian, I’m especially looking forward to seeing one of the men behind the band that I’ve seen thrash live completely solo, relying only on his prose to convey his stories.
The review of his Pittsburgh show is stellar- check it out here. and don’t touch his beard, but check him out at the Outer Space this Friday, March 7. Tickets are available at the door or online here. If you’re not in CT, or not around this Friday, you can try and check out one of the other remaining dates on the tour.
