Cynic and Devin Townsend! Cynic and Devin Townsend! Cynic and Devin Freaking Townsend!

Oh yeah, Between the Buried and Me is also on the bill. Take a look.


Holy crap. I thought Cynic would never come this close to the region. But lo and behold, Terry Harper is bring them to Headliners in Louisville with The Devin Townsend Project. Again I say: Holy crap.

If you don’t know who Cynic are, you should. They are one of the founders of what folks call “progressive death metal.” You can read a Noise Pollution interview with frontman Paul Masdival here.

I’ve seen Devin Townsend once with the Devin Townsend Band (also in Louisville, when he opened for Opeth) and the man is a wunderkind. Just to see Devin back onstage is a shocker: After his retirement from the road in 2007, I thought the man would never perform live again.

Devin released “Ki” earlier this year and the second DTP disc, “Addicted,” hits record stores next week. You can read a NP interview with Devin here.

I keep forgetting BTBAM. Sure, I like Between The Buried And Me just fine … but after an evening of Cynic and Devin Townsend, I’ll spend the BTBAM set at the bar, thanks.

Tickets are a paltry $15 and on sale at Ticketweb. Go to this show, I tell you. You won’t be sorry.
