The Dallas Thrash Metal Heroes Are Taking Over Deep Ellum For A Weekend In November, Hosting Back-To-Back Concerts Featuring All Their Brutal Friends.
No fucking way. Not in the town they’ve dominated for 10 years now, not in the scene they’ve owned since back when RBC was still called the Red Blood Club.
If anything, it’s the other way around: Just barely a month after Post Malone’s self-thrown Posty Fest commands the entire city’s attention for one night, Power Trip’s own upcoming hometown throwdown promises to be two-night blow-out.
Called “Evil Beat, Vol 1,” back-to-back band-hosted affairs on Friday, November 9, and Saturday, November 10, will honor Power Trip’s 10-year anniversary. And, to celebrate reaching that milestone, the band has hand-selected a punishing lineup of performers to join in on their weekend-long Deep Ellum party.
Friday night’s offering at Club Dada will be headlined by Eternal Champion (featuring members of Power Trip,Iron Age and War Hungry performing power metal) and feature a touring set from Japan’s Forward alongside Dallas standouts Obstruction and Steel Bearing Hand. Tickets to this kickoff bash are available here.
On Saturday at the larger Canton Hall, the stakes will be raised with a headlining set from the Power Trip fellas themselves. That anticipated effort will follow offerings from California’s Ceremony and the beloved Austin-based Iron Age, among others. Tickets to this would-be main event are currently on sale here.
Better start mentally preparing for the pit now.
