With a lineup of Mastodon, Eagles of Death Metal, and Russian Circles playing at Aragon Ballroom, fans definitely went in with high expectations. The entire evening certainly didn’t disappoint. Russian Circles, a Chicago band, played to their hometown on the high stage that is distinct to Aragon and they sounded absolutely amazing. Eagles of Death Metal came out with high energy and were lots of fun to watch. Brent Hinds of Mastodon came out and jammed out with them for a song early on in their set. Mastodon hit the stage and the crowd got riled up even more than they already were. Each band brought something unique and truly their own to the table. The crowd trickled out at the end of the show happy and with smiles to match. We can only eagerly wait for each band to return, though a lineup like that is truly special and shall I say, epic.
