Last Chance to Reason

Last Chance to Reason and Evan Brewer with Alan Smithee and Quaere Verum at Fubar August 16
7:00 p.m. / $12

If Mega Man got together with Sonic the Hedgehog and Metroid to start a metal band it would probably sound a lot like Last Chance to Reason. The band's progressive tech-metal is as influenced by bands like Animals as Leaders and Cynic as it is by classic sixteen-bit video game soundtracks. With the albums Level 1, Level 2, and the inevitable Level 3 (out later this month via Prosthetic), this is a metal band for the kid who grew up locked inside with his Nintendo more so than the kid who was out back drawing pentagrams in the dirt and sacrificing cats. I will say I think this band would be better if it were all instrumental, keeping within the lines of the vocal-less video game themes, but audiences these days just can't get enough of a guy walking around the stage yelling at them, I guess.

Opening the show is Evan Brewer, formerly of Reflux, A Life Once Lost, Animosity and countless others. Evan just released his second solo album last month, and will be doing just about everything imaginable with a bass guitar, just short of playing it with his dick.
