Counting the dates

Fed up with not knowing the date? Worried that Aunt Aggie will get you another calendar of cute doggie pics? Fear no more! The Sorrowfall 2008 calendar is now available.

For the (extremely) reasonable price of £7 you can have a Sorrowfall calendar (complete with RokPix's finest live frames adorning each page) to replace the tatty Bon Jovi 2007 calendar 'yer ma bought ye' because she knew you liked them 'hippy bands'.

Head your way over to www.sorrowfall.co.uk or www.myspace.com/sorrowfall to purchase your essential metal Chrimbo pressie for the(sorrow)fallen among you all!

In case you missed the Queens of the Stone Age update...here's the latest news onJosh 'Ginger' Homme's Belfast date...straight from Wonderland..

"Fans of Queens Of The Stone Age who were disappointed when their
concert date at the Balmoral Hall sold out within hours last week, will be
delighted to learn that due to phenomenal ticket demand, the band have
announced that their planned February show in the venue will now take
place in the Kings Hall - increasing the capacity to cope with the demand
from fans to see them live in Belfast."
