I’m the guy who runs this blog. I live in the Seattle area and I like live metal.  Not necessarily all metal, but a pretty broad spectrum of it.  As a public service, I post on this page upcoming shows in the Seattle area (and sometimes elsewhere in the Northwest) as I become aware of them. I tend to focus on the shows I would like to see, but I’ve tried to make it broader than that, too.

WARNING: I get my information from reliable web sites, including the venues for the shows, but I can’t guarantee that what I find will stay accurate, so check it out for yourself.  And I don’t promise to update the info if a show is canceled or a band drops off a tour or the venue changes.  So before you show up to buy tickets at the door, check with the venue to make sure nothing has changed.

Sometimes I don’t list a show because I’m unfamiliar with the names, or because I missed an announcement or forgot to check a venue’s calendar. If you’re a band or a venue and you want us to add your info here, leave a comment below or send e-mail to:   islander@nocleansinging.com

    By any chance, do you know a good site to be aware of all the west coast shows? Thank you!

    You, my friend, are rad!

  8. […] it’s not my primary choice of genre to delve into, but there is no denying the prominence of the Seattle metal scene. For that reason alone, I’ve been looking into bands that are harder, louder, faster, thrasher, […]

    you forgot Helloween man! (I believe it was March 8)

  10. JR says:

    You forgot to delete the rescheduled venom show on the 23rd and Black Breath is playing on the 17th of December @ neumos.

    Keep up the good work!

      Many thanks — I made those changes, plus added a few other items discovered while perusing the Neumos calendar. I’ve got some more updating to do later today.
