Then sometimes, just sometimes, stupid work commitments pop-up, and you end up missing Weedeater, Saviours, Black Cobra and Pombagira tearing it up in a tiny sweatbox basement just down the road.

WIN: Tickets to see Weedeater and Saviors in London

June 9th, 2010

Okay, so we know that a big chunk of the UK metal community is about to decamp to Castle Donington for a weekend of metal carnage at Download Festival, and will prbably spend most of next week in a post-booze haze of poverty and regret. Which is a) all the more reason to keep on partying through the pain, and b) save money while you do so by winning a pair of tickets to catch Weedeater and Saviours when they play in London next week. Oh yes.
