The Tidal Wave 12 is Saturday & Sunday July 24 & 25, 2010 Noon-6pm @ McLaren Park Amphitheater, S.F.

This is a daytime event, Noon-6pm both days (Saturday & Sunday). Yes, it actually starts at Noon, due to a very tight schedule, usually about 7 good metal bands each day. Confirmed bands so far include: Abysmal Dawn, Stone Vengeance, Giant Squid, Near Life, OR3O, and of course many more to be announced later…

I've never seen the Squid before, so I'm excited. This also means Gregory's coming back to the Bay, so I'll probably see them playing a club too!

Prepare for awesomeness. Throwing a Donner Party at Sea is going to melt your fucking brain. Neonate (if they play it), will slurp up what's left of it with a straw. ;)

You need a summer vacation. Also this is just the preliminary lineup.

Is it that possible they won't play it? I thought it would be a live staple of theirs...it is their best song...

Think Abysmal Dawn will wind up being the headliner? If so that's quite the drop off from Exodus in 08.

No way, it'll probably be someone like Possessed or Heathen or something.

That sounds right. I'd bed Passive Aggressive ends up somewhere on there.

You need a summer vacation. Also this is just the preliminary lineup.True, but that's only a month after the new baby is due, so there's no fucking way. Imma be daddyin' it up at that point, no doubt. I'll be lucky if I can break free to hit Primus and Slayer in Cleveland in August, much less the Squid in San Fran in July! :D

Is it that possible they won't play it? I thought it would be a live staple of theirs...it is their best song...Most likely they would - I'm just sayin' "if" by some odd chance. They could always elect to substitute something like "Summit" (which wouldn't disappoint me at all, especially since I've heard "Neonate" live now), or "Revolution in the Water". I wish they'd play "Sutter's Fort" live someday, but that'll probably never happen. :(


EDIT: Now if they were to add say, IntrOnaut, Grayceon, Cormorant, Ludicra, La Fin du Monde, Helms Alee or Red Fang to that bill...
(the first three have albums potentially due out this year, btw...)

I haven't seen them yet, so I'd be bummed out if they didn't play it. Although I very well could be seeing them again at some point throughout the summer. My summer is going to be chock full of shows.

As per Arthur of Cormorant himself, they aren't looking for shows actively, but if an awesome one came to them, they'd take it. I think this would count as an awesome one. I bet if Squid is on there, Grayceon will be too, unless Squid has a long set.
