Back in the middle of October I headed over to the House of Targ for some metal action, headlined by crushing Austin trio The Well. It was a dreaded five-act bill, fortunately shortened to the less-dreaded four-act bill when one of the bands had to back out. In addition to Texans, you had a trio of Ottawa bands, starting off with sludge outfit Opium Winter. Here's frontman Josh and guitarist H. Figurine!
Bass action with Nicholas, who I last saw a decade ago performing with The Unavowed!
More Nicholas, and fellow Unavowed vet Chris on drums!
Next up Black Galaxy; I've seen them a few times in the last year, so without any more preamble, here's Jimmy!
Guitar action with Dave!
Bass action with Mark!
More Dave and Jimmy!
The Aphelion are one of the sharpest outfits in the city, and as usual the put on a great performance. Here's Evan, also handling bass duties this time around.
Percussive action with Nathanael!
Keyboard action with James!
More guitar with Tyler!
The Well really crushed it, here's some drinking action with Lisa and Ian!

Good stuff all around.
