New York City's thrash metal masters Anthrax, with frontman Joey Belladona and Scott Ian, brought their tour to the brand new Emo's East, a huge(by club standards) new music venue that occupies the former Back Room location on East Riverside.
I don't know if the show sold out or not, but it was packed with fans of Austin's metal scene, including 101x's "No Control" Chuck Loesch looking like the notorious Viking Erik the Red with his infamous flowing red beard.
With supporting acts Death Angel and Testament opening this was a great thrash metal warm up for this Sundays Slayer gig at Auditorium Shores. For the complete Anthrax/Testament tour schedule check out http://anthrax.com
