SWoD mania returns! – July 31, 2007


TAVERN ROW – Enthusiasts for the heavy metal musical stylings of famed international rock legend Judas Priest are invited to attend the one-night only presentation by Plaza-renowned tribute band Sad Wings of Destiny (SWOD). The event, dubbed SWOD’s “Fourth and Final Annual Last Show Ever, Ever” takes place at Arcata’s Alibi club on Saturday, Aug. 4. The band will be joined and outclassed by Silver Lake area hipsters Thee Gentlemen Callers who promise to be better looking than the headliners.

After a career spanning 18 months, SWOD hung up the leather chaps a couple years ago and prepared to rejoin the legions of Humboldt County squares and stiffs. However, in the wake of any rock whatsoever occurring anywhere in Humboldt County at anytime at all, the band has reluctantly reformed for the past four years, set aside their creative differences for annual evenings of boozy, wobbling dual-guitar solos, low-end pyrotechnics and the screams… oh, the screams. SWOD is currently training with a “Laser pointer,” promising a full multi-media experience.
Festivities kick off at 10:30 p.m. with a “meet and greet the band,” no-host bar and Dutch raffle.
Those under the age of 21, suffering from tinnitus or allergic to fog machine vapor are encouraged to not attend.
