The Cursed was an interesting side project that featured Bobby Blitz from Overkill and Dan Lorenzo from Hades/Non Fiction. This was announced as their first and last gig but in Rock and Roll things are never quite set in stone. Opening up the night was Joey Belladonna formerly of Anthrax and the Paul Green School Of Rock All-Stars who performed Metal standards. It was a great night and should you want to learn more about it just scroll past the logo. We made sure to document everyone’s performance and take photos of all of them as well.

If you have been going to a lot of concerts in the New York Area lately then you are already aware of some of the mainstays as far as the venues are concerned. One of the biggest providers of events for the Metal Community has been B.B. King Blues Club and over the course of three years I think we have covered about sixty shows from the venue. The performers have been some of the biggest acts across the wide genre scope that Metal has and now the owners have decided to up their game with the grand opening of The Highline Ballroom. The Highline is located Downtown on 16th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues and the venue is something awesome when it comes right down to it. This spacious room has a larger floor area than B. B. King’s and an upstairs seating area as well as a roomy stage for the bands to give you their all upon. The sound and lighting systems is top notch as well so it would be a treat to come here for the first time and review the appearance of Bobby Blitz’s side project The Cursed. For tonight’s show the Overkill singer would bring with him Joey Belladonna formerly of Anthrax and The School Of Rock All-Stars as the guest openers. Here is what you missed out on if you could not attend.
