This has been about 30 years in the making – Helmet and Prong are co-headlining a tour, and we’re pretty fucking stoked about it. Since we live for all things throwback in San Antonio, you should be, too.

“Finally! Helmet and Prong on tour together at last. The circle is now complete,” Prong’s Tommy Victor said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “From the years of crafting groundbreaking riffage and rhythmical carnage on New York’s Lower East Side, to now, the entities still standing that drafted a generation of sonic assault are about to collide. And getting to share a stage with [Helmet’s] Page Hamilton, one of the most influential masters in existence, is an honor for me personally. Absolutely perfect.”

It’s safe to say both ’90s rock acts’ careers were launched at New York’s famed live-music venue CBGB. And now we get a chance to see them both at one show.

$20-$25, Fri May 11, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
