He'll play that set as long as everyone promises to keep their camera phones in their pockets.

Oh my god that would be fucking amazing! I saw the reunion with him and Doyle in 2005 and thought that was great, but fuck, Samhain songs too!?!?! God damn....

I just saw the whole lineup, and god damn thats an amazing festival. I just think Weezer is a little out of place there:lol: Fuck it, I'd still be at their stage when they go on

This is awesome, I might make the two hour drive to this. I never thought I'd have the chance to see Samhain songs performed live. Steve Zing mentioned earlier this year that there would be something happening with Samhain, I guess this might be it.

Manks post is a little misleading, since all these bands are spread out in different venues all throughout Chicago. I think I'll hit up Nachtmystium, Macabre, Youth of Today, and Danzig on Friday at the Congress.
