Bible of the Devil and Priestess @ Double Door

If you think Canadians are all sunshine and maple syrup, think again. There's some serious heavy rockers coming to the Double Door tonight and they've invited some of our neighbors to the north. Chicago metal band Bible of the Devil headlines with Montreal-based Priestess supporting along with The Resonators and Blackmaker. Grab your favorite faded black t-shirt and be prepared to rock. (Remember: nothing shakes off the fuzz from a long holiday weekend better than a bit o' headbanging.) The Double Door is located at 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave. Tickets are $8 and the show starts at 9pm.
