Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals at Summit Music Hall, with Author & Punisher, 1/15/14

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS at SUMMIT MUSIC HALL | 1/15/14 After the stage was cleared of any strange musical contraptions left behind by opening act Author & Punisher (more on that in a minute), Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals took the stage, and instantanly, it was strange seeing Anselmo on a smaller stage compared to the arena-filling epicness he brought with Pantera. Here at the Summit, he looked like your average cranky and drunk neighbor with a beer belly and a sleeveless shirt.
