Forget Black Metal, Get a Deeper Shade of Purple With Gypsyhawk

Posted By on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 at 3:10 PM


All Treeforted out, you say? Boo to that. If there's anything that four days of solid live music should do is whet your appetite for more.

Especially since there was one very notable thing largely missing from the Treefort lineup: metal. 

And tonight at Red Room, you can get your hesh on, old school, with the metaliciousness of Gypsyhawk, a band that tosses aside the black metal zeitgeist to bask in the deep purple rays of the late 1970s sound. Expect big riffs, bigger glasses of cheap draft beer and a band that isn't afraid to rock out, dork style.

"We fucking love smoking weed and drinking beer and having a good time,"  the band's singer, Eric Harris, said in a press release. "But at the same time, we like to read books and play Magic: The Gathering. 

Now admit it. Once cheap beer and Magic are in the picture, you aren't really Treeforted out, are you? 

Gypsyhawk plays at 9 p.m. at Red Room, with Mothership and Obscured by the Sun opening. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door.
