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

    Under the section blogroll on this page, when you click on Northwest Metal Alliance, it comes up with a septic tank on it.


    • Islander says:

      Ooops! Well, the Northwest Metal Alliance link is obviously defunct. Why it’s redirecting to that septic tank site, I have no idea — not my doing, though it is kind of funny. Anyway, I’ve deleted the link. Reminds me that I need to clean up the blogroll, which I haven’t done in… forever.
