On March 8th, Metal Blade offshoot Blacklight Media Records will have their first-ever label showcase at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. The event will be hosted by Jose Mangin and it will feature five bands under Blacklight Media including Gozu, Good Tiger, Mother Feather, Oni and Eyes of the Sun. Metal Blade’s Candiria will be performing as the event’s headlining special guest. Tickets for this event will go on sale this Friday (19th).
Blacklight Media Records’ Chris Santos expressed his excitement:
“I could not be more excited to announce the very first Blacklight Media Showcase! To say this is a lifelong dream come true doesn’t begin to articulate how proud I am of this show and more importantly, how proud I am of the bands who call Blacklight Media and Metal Blade Records their home. This is truly a once in a lifetime show for all of us and for all the amazing fans of these talented artists. Having Jose Mangin as the Master of Ceremonies is icing on the cake! We can’t wait to celebrate a night of crushing multi-genre Metal with you on March 8. Long Live Metal!”
