Precious Metal Nights End at the Lit Lounge

After six years at the Lit Lounge, the Precious Metal series ended tonight with four of the best new extreme metal bands, Hivesmasher, Fashion Week, Flaming Tusks (pictured above) and SOS. Where this music scene will gravitate now is anyone's guess, as Curran McReynolds seemed to be the only local concert broker interested in nurturing this below-the-radar music scene. For instance, the two singers of Hivesmasher spent most of their performance wrestling with each other and throwing themselves at the members of the audience around them. Not many promoters will tolerate that.
