Yesterday, thanks to the good folks at Century Media, Viola and I attended the Orphaned Land concert at the Bottom Lounge. Now, Kobi Farhi (Lead Singer) and company are headed to Austin for two shows as part of the South by Southwest festivities.
The band only has four shows scheduled in the US, so those of you who are currently in or will be in Austin can get a double dose of Middle Eastern heavy metal goodness later this week. Orphaned Land will play at Red 7 on March 17 and at Emo’s Main Room for Full Metal Texas 2010 on March 18, 2010.
Viola and I were allowed to take photos of the performance. So, here are few images we took during the show.
If you aren’t yet familiar with Orphaned Land, you can catch up by reading our recent review of the band’s newest album, The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR. I’ve included a Lala.com widget for anyone to take a listen.
Viola and I also interviewed Kobi, so stay tuned for what we talked about later this week. I am in the middle of transcribing the interview.
