Even though I was not all that into them when they started out, I have made up for lost time in supporting the albums of Kittie and the shows that they do when they pay a visit to NYC. I’ve come to realize just how hard the ladies work at both giving you a solid slab of Metal music along with an entertaining show so when they booked a gig at B.B. King Blues Club I was surely going to be there. This evening they would bring along Soil as the direct support and I had heard them before and also choose both Arkaea and Straight Line Stitch to do some opening band damage. We arrived nice and early to absorb and photograph the whole roster of bands and you can enjoy more by scrolling down.
Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY)
Opener: Soil, Arkaea, Straight Line Stitch
Label: E1 Entertainment
I’ve mentioned in the past that even though I was a little late in getting to the table in my appreciation for the girls in Kittie and how they deliver the Metal, that I have done the best possible these last few years by being on point to support their adventuring in our fair city. That being said tonight’s gig marks what amounts to my fourth time catching them perform and actually the third go round in B.B. King Blues Club in terms of gigs that I have attended. In my humble opinion this particular room works very well for the band at least as far as NYC is concerned as the way the club is spaced the fans can get right up close. Tonight there would be no photo barrier either and that meant they could even push themselves up to the front of the stage while the band performed. The show this evening would feature Straight Line Stitch, Arkaea and Soil and end up making this a three band bill from E1 Entertainment. With that many acts from one label it made this feel like something akin to a label showcase. SLS would come on first.
