Sometimes you see a press photo of a band and laugh. Is one guy staring artfully away from the others? Are they pressed against a brick wall? Are they all making the goofy face?
Phoenix-based metal band Howitzer isn't having any of that. Seriously -- look at these guys. They look ready to haul off and kick some ass. We're betting that will be the case at Martini Ranch tonight, where they are scheduled to perform with Play for Blood Until Chaos, Ti22, Lost in Lies, and Grudghold. It'll be loud -- way loud -- which is the perfect way to celebrate 11-11-11, or as we like to call it, Nigel Tufnel Day.
