All of the heavy shows that had been bombarding us on our adventures outside of PiercingMetal Headquarters this past week found us needing a dose of the classic stuff and in that we chose to brave the incredible rainstorm that was hitting the East Coast for a set of tunes by the one and only Blue Oyster Cult.
