Pictures can show you what an event looked like. Recordings can tell you what it sounded like. But nothing short of being there can express how it felt.
That was especially the case when European neofolk trio Heilung performed at The Fillmore Silver Spring recently.

Geoff Tate and his band Operation: Mindcrime performed at City Winery DC recently, and I was there taking photos and reminiscing about the late 1980s. Geoff and the members of his current band performed Queensryche’s progressive metal classic Operation: Mindcrime in its entirety from beginning to end. It was a strangely magical evening brimming with with food, wine, laughs, and of course metal music.
