As supergroups go, you really can't do much better thanArson Anthem
: The hardcore group, which has been around for, oh, four years or so now, features Pantera's Phil Anselmo, Eyehategod's Mike Williams and Hank Williams III -- or, in other words,way
more star power than most of the bands that are booked to play gigs at Fort Worth'sThe Rail Club
. And yet that's just where that group will be tonight, kicking off a short six-date tour that it'll embark on with area metal favoritesWarbeast
and up-and-coming New Orleans sludge metal acthaarp
Far as I can recall this show, which will also feature sets from a couple other Texas acts in Turbid North and Burndown, is the biggest that The Rail Club's ever scene -- never mind the fact that this show is also serving as the iconic Anselmo's first gig in the region since 2004. As such, VIP and meet-and-greet passes have long been sold-out. And, no surprise here, the $20 to $25 tickets available at the door aren't expected to last very long, either.
