NOLA heavy metal greats Down – consisting of vocalist Philip H. Anselmo, guitarists Pepper Keenan and Kirk Windstein, drummer Jimmy Bower, and bassist Pat Bruders – have announced their return to the live stage with a very special show on Friday, August 13th at the Fillmore in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dubbed the ‘NOLA Town Throwdown’ and featuring support from comedian Dave Hill, the event will take place both in-person (with live fans) and on-line for the world to see.
Regarding the gig, Anselmo comments, “It’s gonna be great to play our home town again! Always a blast!”
Keenan says: “NOLA Town Throwdown is a long time coming. Let’s do this and make it epic! Up the hammers!”
Bruders states, “Through the hard times and now for the good times, this is gonna be a very special show for everyone! We’re ready to turn it up and slam it DOWN!”
Windstein adds, “Playing on stage with my brothers in DOWN is always a special moment to me. We can’t wait to blow the roof off of The Fillmore! Being in NOLA takes this to a whole new level!”
Bower ends with, “It’s been way too long, y’all! I can’t remember the last time we played NOLA. On Friday, August 13th we will play our hometown. A DOWN show y’all! Old friends, good times, and great tunes on a superstitious night! We’re ready to jam, are you?”
