That Nina Hagen thing I posted last week with cellos was (I believe) Apocalyptica, a Finnish cello ensemble that re-works metal classics into cello pieces. Just found out they are playing House Of Blues in Dallas next Monday night.
Walk the XX blocks to HOB.
$10 cab ride home...
$25 to see live cellos playing lots of badassery of Metallica & their ilk?
I'm SO there.
A particularly elegant re-imagining of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters by Apocalyptica
I got an upcoming events email which apparently wasn't for Dallas only. Crap. If you're in Vegas on Monday, go see Apocalyptica, and I'll be wanting a full accounting of the event. Oh well.
