Down got together in 1991, when Pantera's Phil Anselmo teamed up with Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan, Crowbar's Kirk Windstein and Todd Strange and Jimmy Bower of Eyehategod. United by a mutual love of doom and sludge metal, Down has to be considered one of the early pioneers of the style of music that later came to be called "stoner rock." Strange has since left the band, and his role on bass has now been taken up by Pat Bruders, also of Crowbar. This show presents the opportunity to see some true metal veterans revealing their individual roots in hardcore and fusing them fully with the heavier music for which each has become known.
