A virtual supergroup, Down (due tonight at Summit Music Hall with In Solitude and Ponykiller) is spearheaded by none other than the fear-instilling voice of Phil Anselmo, of super heavy legends Pantera. But Down is a band all its own -- the group has been making sludgy, devastating metal since it came together in New Orleans in the early '90s.
Having recently toured Europe, the southern metal gods are taking September to finish out some U.S. dates before heading to South America in November. This show is all ages, and tickets are $25-28. Doors open at 7 p.m., and bands start at 8 p.m.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
