It’s Me, With Anvil Drummer Robb Reiner!
Thanks to my eagle eye, which spotted a FaceBook update for the page dedicated to promoting the film Anvil! The Story of Anvil!, I was able to snag two tickets for last night’s “Anvil Experience,” taking place at the East Village Cinema on Second Avenue, about a ten minute walk from the Chickpad. The Anvil Experience is part of the promotional tour for the film, where they show the Anvil movie, and then afterwards Anvil play a live set of about six songs. Then the Anvil guys hang around, schmooze with the fans, rub their sweat all over you, pose for pictures and sign autographs. It’s pretty much of a heavy metal cluster fuck, but a ton of rad fun, nevertheless. Geoffrey and I had a blast despite nearly losing our digits to frostbite due to the EXTREME air-conditioning inside the theater. We also got to meet and get photos of us with Robb and Lips. Oh yeah, and Geoffrey got a picture of himself standing next to Chris Martin from Coldplay, whom he is totally gay for (Note origin of new buzz phrase: “Take It With Your Hand”). That alone was worth the price of admission. If you haven’t yet seen/experienced Anvil! The Story of Anvil!, you are the only one who hasn’t, so you had better go see it while you can.
