Goblins ... ghouls ... good times at Basement Transmissions by Ryan Smith

Mushroomhead packed -- and absolutely blasted -- Basement Transmissions on Thursday night, bringing their bad-ass brand of metal grotesquerie back to Erie for the first time in almost four years (and for the first time ever to an all-ages Erie crowd).

I'll be bringing a review of the show out in time for the next edition of the Reader, but, for now, check out some pics of the beasts at play:

And, if you haven't already, be sure to check out Tommy Shannon's recent pre-show Q-and-A with founding Mushroomhead member J Mann.

Heck, with the word that the band's gotten grounded here and forced to cancel tonight's show in Rochester due to the horrendous local weather conditions, this might just be about the best that Mushroomhead fans can get today!
