Pig Destroyer with Fulgora and some shit local band at Fubar
May 16
7 p.m. / $17 to $20

(Full disclosure: My band is also playing this show. Don't watch us.)

It's hard to say the phrase "extreme metal" without the words "Pig Destroyer" following closely behind. Since forming in 1997, the band has released five full-length albums, toured very little and played St. Louis...never. In 2011 St. Louis-area native Adam Jarvis joined the band on drums before recording 2012's Book Burner, and recruited his also St. Louis-based cousin John Jarvis last year as the band's first-ever bassist. After more than fifteen years without a visit, we should all bow our heads with a thank-you prayer to the Jarvis family crest for making a St. Louis Pig Destroyer show finally a reality.

No Hanneman no care. Also Kerry King is a cunt.

No Lombardo? No thanks. Without Jeff Hanneman is bad enough, but without Lombardo it just ain't Slayer.

Go for Suicidal. Stick around for Pig Destroyer the day after.

It looks like an Old School set list.
