The Betty 20th Anniversary Tour!
Tuesday, March 17 – Doors 8pm - $20
Billed as the "thinking man's metal band," Helmet provided an alternative to the grunge bands of the time with their clean cut aesthetic and raw, unrelenting, propulsive sound. Betty came on the trails of the band's first mainstream success, 1992's Meantime. The cut "Milquetoast" became a music video staple on MTV and the album was critically praised for its genre-defying exploration into jazz, blues and improvisation. As music writer Darrell Bassett wrote upon the album's release, "The thump and grind of Betty fully reflects the seemingly meaningless forces that shape our hi-tech existences, the inner pressure that waxes and wanes as life's pace explodes exponentially and its occasional moments of grace. Betty is a surprising album, one which grows as it unfolds its subtleties." A prophetic statement if ever there was one.
Helmet celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the release of their seminal album Betty by performing the album in its entirety (along with a second set full of hits and rarities) at the Magic Bag on Tuesday, March 17th 2015
