It seems like just yesterday we were reminding you how bad the Eagles of Death Metal are live while praising The Hives for putting on one of the best shows of the year. Well, the band Axl Rose so memorably dubbed The Pigeons of Shit Metal are coming back in February, and they won't have the Sweds to save them. Who else is coming? Well, fans of bands with names stolen from pop culture and skankers should definitely click the link for this week's concert announcements. --Martin Cizmar
