Baroness Return Home at Union Transfer May 24

Baroness Return Home at Union Transfer May 24

Local area metal outfit Baroness put out a much-lauded full-length album, Yellow & Green, last year. Unfortunately, while on tour this past summer in England, the group got into a horrific accident, dropping thirty feet from a viaduct near Bath. Luckily, their fall was cushioned by trees, but the members didn’t all walk away completely unscathed. Both bassist Matt Maggioni and drummer Allen Bickle broke vertebrae, and have since left the band being replaced on this most recent U.S. Tour by new members Nick Jost and Sebastian Thomson. Singer-guitarist John Baizley broke his left leg and arm, which was shattered into about a dozen pieces. Though there were talks about amputation, Baizley has recovered with nearly full mobility. Tonight, Baroness will make a triumphant return home at Union Transfer. I am sure that there will be plenty under the roof of the former Spaghetti Warehouse fully appreciative that this show is taking place, and ready to rock. I know that I will be. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., $17.50 - $20, All Ages - Alexis V.
