Isness @ 529

* This is totally a personal bias and I apologize, but Isis is having their farewell tour. I would HIGHLY suggest checking out the show at the 40 Watt. Isis is one of my all-time favorite prog-metal bands, I’ve been down with them since Panopticon came out and considering this is their last tour, they deserve as much promotion and publicity as they can get.
