Valentine’s Day might be long over for 2014, but if you have the craving for a little bit of “Love Metal” then have I got a press release for you.

It’s time my friends. It’s here once more and I am speaking of nothing less than “March Metal Madness” – Technically speaking its a month just like any other in our NYC Concert Scene but it sure is a lot of fun giving it a grandiose title in terms of the postings that get done here on the Official Blog for PiercingMetal.com. I’ve decided that with this in mind that I would raise a couple of horns in its direction and get some readers rallying as well.
As readers of the site and our various groups of Social Network followers already know, PiercingMetal is all about hitting the shows that the Big Apple hosts AND doing exciting contests for these events whenever the means allow us to do so. As I glance upon the calendar below I see no less than eight things that are going to keep my time (and yours) occupied. I wonder what you readers are planning on attending and what shows are sending bursts of excitement through your bones. Now the new readers might be saying “what is he on about now” and they should know that this visual below is but a small sample of a regional events calendar that has been in place on the PiercingMetal website since Day One. According to the Metalogical Clock that is just under nine years now and it has served the Metal Community well. I encourage and welcome bookmarking this and sharing with your peeps.
During “March Metal Madness” my plan is to up the levels of Social Networking fun a little more and while you might be chuckling to yourself thinking that I did this anyway on a daily basis, you can count on even more tweets and Instagrams and postings to our Official Facebook Page. If you are not yet on board with PiercingMetal on any of these yet, please do click and follow along so you don’t miss out on anything that I am serving up. I’ll be counting on your adventuring with me for sure. Now let’s cook!!!! (pardon the “Breaking Bad” reference 🙂
