Mastodon, who are touring Australia and New Zealand as part of the Big Day Out festival have announced a couple of sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne:

MELBOURNE – Thursday 28 January – THE PALACE

Personally, I’d love to see them, but won’t be attending the BDO due to it being sold out, and the rest of the lineup being generally pretty crappy.
To Mastodon – please consider doing your own tour next time around. I’d really like to check you out but won’t spend $150 to do so, nor will I go and see you if you’re the support act of another band I’m not so interested in seeing.
For fuck sake. This is not the news I wanted. My reason are exactly yours hellboy for not seeing them. You think they would be big enough by now that they could do their own tour of australia. I really wanted them to come with their own show, and do a 2 hour type set with the whole latest record and then songs from the rest. Like they’ve been doing in the US. Ugh next time I guess.
