Megadeth, Jackass Flats, Alice In Chains

Thanksgiving approaches and there are only a couple shows on the agenda as the bands head home for the holiday. Kind of the calm before the storm of the holiday season and a number of good bands coming to town next month.

Dave Mustaine brings Megadeth to The National on Saturday night. Tix are $32.50 in advance, $35 day of show, doors open at 6 and the show starts at 6:45 with openers Arcanium, Suicide Silence and Machinehead. Its a tiny metalfest so you can bang your heads 'til your ear drums bleed.

If you are in a completely different mood on Saturday night, a bluegrass mood perhaps, check out Jackass Flats at the Capital Ale House Downtown. Tix are $7 and the show starts at 9. Here is Jackass Flats playing in WV in January:

The National just announced that ALICE IN CHAINS will be coming there on Friday March 5th at 9pm. Tickets on sale December 4th at all Ticketmaster outlets,,, and The National box office. Tickets are $35.50 in advance and $40 day of show. Their new album "Black Gives Way To Blue" has recieved good reviews. Here they are performing the title track on "Later with Jools Holland" (which is an awesome show and is on Ovation here in the States by the way. That's Jools playing keys on this song.):

That's about it from here. Have a great weekend!
