* Some guy starting cutting himself at the beginning of the Negative Plane show at a Latino pool hall in the D.C. suburbs last weekend. It wasn’t cool, but the new record makes me feel weird, too.
* Who doesn’t enjoy fast songs about beer? I sure do. So does Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Beer Corpse.
* Remember when Mastodon wasn’t a prog-rock band? Neither do I.
* Plus music from Raspberry Bulbs (Bone Awl member), Bastard Priest, Boris, and more. See full playlist below.

New Bastard Priest tracks sound killer! Under the Hammer of Destruction was one of my top 25 albums of 2010, kinda like Motorhead gone death metal. Looking forward to the band’s as-yet-untitled follow up.
