35 bucks? What. I know it's expensive to get a band from Norway but eh, they usually tour. Sortilegia is awesome live though.

This is a one off, exclusive North American performance by Mare...and none of the bands on the bill are touring acts..

There's 5 bands and its being held in a proper venue (rare for underground metal shows here)..I'd say that people who are into this strain of black metal would be more than happy to have the opportunity to attend a show like this on this side of the pond.

Its not a charity event - and anyone thinking it's possible for an organizer to be 'cashing in' on an obscure black metal festival in North America is delusional.

No offense but I wouldn't call the abbey pub a "proper venue". Also I'm rather surprised that Wrigleyville is allowing this to happen. Either way $35 for some random ass obscure black metal bands is kinds iffy. But hopefully the idea will catch on and we'll get some more metal in the city.

For this kind of show, and taking into consideration the kind of venues that underground black/death metal shows and fests are generally held at here in Chicago (..Cafe Lura,Ultra Lounge,Live Wire/Metal Shaker..), this place is basically like playing at Buckingham Palace.

Nothing wrong with The Abbey... large floor area,adequate stage and sound, balcony- end of the day,this room was intended for live music, unlike some of the other venues setups I've mentioned above. Where do you suppose the organizer should have booked this..? The Metro,The House of Blues..or maybe the United Center...?? Reggies does 'bigger' metal shows, with touring bands on 'major' metal labels..this is not that kind of show.

You say you'd like to see more metal shows in Chicago yet you're here going out of your way to nitpick a quite large black metal show already in the works.

For those into this style of music, which it appears that you are not, there's nothing 'random' about the band selection. An organizer wouldn't randomly bring in 5 bands from out of town, 4 of which are coming from outside the US.

how is $35 expensive for five bands? Especially with a foreign headliner. I doubt very strongly a single bit of profit will be made from this.
