Mastodon recently announced their long-awaited return to Rochester with a show at new venue Anthology on Nov. 13.
Although technically from Atlanta, half of the ferocious foursome call the Flour City home. Both guitarist Bill Kelliher and drummer Brann Dailor have deep roots in the Rochester metal music community, having come from the local legendary mathcore group Lethargy, which disbanded in 1999, amongst several other projects.
Anthology is a new music venue located in Rochester’s East End in the former Daisy Duke’s location. While not officially open yet, several upcoming shows have been announced with major talents such as the “post-hardcore” of Silverstein (Nov. 18) and the bluegrass grooves of Yonder Mountain String Band (Nov. 1). Keep an eye on NYSMusic for more information and a grand opening date for Anthology as it becomes available.
Mastodon is touring behind the 2014 release Once More ‘Round the Sun. Tickets are $26.50 in advance, $30 at the door. It’s a near certainty that this show will sell out.
