Locate | Navigate part 2 at La Esquina (1000 West 25th Street) will also be having a 2nd opening on Friday, March 7th from 7 – 10 as part of First Friday. The opening will include a performance by the Los Angeles based collective (VxPxC). I’ll be there for the performance, stop by if you’re in the area.

In metal news, I found some interesting bits this week that I’d like to share.

First, I read about this book “True Norwegian Black Metal” in Decibel magazine recently, and I came across this article about the book, which includes a video interview with the author, Peter Beste. The interview piece is from a Norwegian news/entertainment channel, so the only parts that are in English are the author himself talking about the book, which is really all that matters. It sounds like this is a book of mostly photography, with a few essays. The author became fascinated with black metal, and spent eight years with black metal luminaries, photographing and talking with them. I’m pretty excited about this book, just from the interview you can tell that Peter Beste has a sincere interest in representing black metal and its subculture in the correct way. The book comes out on May 15th and is published by Vice Books.

In the “keep on rockin’ in the free world” category, this article about heavy metal in Morocco makes me happy to live in a place where I can’t get arrested for listening to metal.

Finally, the popularity of metal is producing some odd marriages of music, art, and industry. First, Slayer has lent their slaytanic imagery to a helmet manufacturer. And not to be outdone, Iron Maiden is touring in a custom painted Boeing 757, and Bruce Dickinson is the pilot.
