Photos: Epica @ Jaxx

Dutch band Epica brought its bombastic mix of symphonic, gothic, and death metal to (the newly renovated!) Jaxx on Tuesday night to a nearly sold-out house. More photos of Epica after the jump and at the full gallery. The full gallery also includes shots of the opening bands.

Photos: Hanzel und Gretyl @ Jaxx

New York's Hanzel und Gretyl are a thoroughly ridiculous band in music, lyric (their latest big hit? "Fukken Uber Death Party"), and imagery. Luckily, they know it, and they don't take themselves seriously at all. As a result, a show that would just be utterly laughable is, well, still laughable, but also big fun.

Misfits @ Jaxx October 25

Punk leftovers-cum-merchandising powerhouse the Misfits have announced a fall tour, stopping at Jaxx Sunday, Oct. 25. It's not quite Halloween, but close enough.
The Jersey-bred musclemen/metal punks emerged in 1977, developed a crude catalog of '50s B-movie themes banged out and recorded with even less tact,  and, technically, disbanded by 1983 (when head howler Glenn Danzig [...]

Photos: Atheist @ Jaxx

Last Friday night, Jaxx may have been the best place to find the highest concentration of absurdly talented musicians in the D.C. area. Florida legends Atheist, featuring a brand-new guitarist who made his debut at Maryland Deathfest, headlined a show full of technical metal bands and enough fast riffage, blast beats and time changes to [...]

Photos: The Haunted @ Jaxx

Sweden's The Haunted made me a new fan on Wednesday night at Jaxx. I had long planned on going to this show despite having no familiarity with this band. A few months ago, the lineup included three other metal bands of which I am a big fan: Nachtmystium, Kylesa and Intronaut. Incredibly, all three of [...]

Photos: Abigail Williams @ Jaxx

Abigail Williams—named after one of the first accusers in the Salem Witch Trials made infamous by Arthur Miller's The Crucible—play a weird kind of black metal with American metalcore tendencies. Their recorded sound is bolstered by epic clean piano lines and majestic orchestrations; unfortunately, both times I have seen them live, their keyboardist was nowhere [...]
