"Goddamn, this looks like a fuckin' rock show to me," tells Jerry Cantrell, in regards to the show he played this past Saturday night (03/16) at the annual SXSW festival in Austin, TX. Preceded by Anyone (a rock show, indeed), Jerry started the show with one of the new tracks off his upcoming June 25th release, Degredation Trip. The song, "Psychotic Break". And as the Hollywood Reporter puts it, "the dark and lumbering "Psychotic Break," full of familiar minor-key vocal and harmonies." Jerry's first live show (outside his appearance with Nickelback in Canada) on the Roadrunner label was indeed a rock show. Bassist Robert Trujillo was in town and joined Jerry and company for a few songs, and even Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul from Pantera made an appearance - playing on the Alice In Chains' classic "Them Bones". Just what was the set list for the night? Many new tracks, and many old. So many tracks, that Jerry kept playing until the venue had to close down...and not one person in the packed house even thought about leaving until then. For a set list of the songs, check out the Jerry Cantrell PHOTO GALLERY (of course, many more songs were played than what is listed...it's true). What next on the Jerry Cantrell touring front? It's the The 2002 Jim Beam Road to the Rackhouse Tour, sponsored by Jim Beam and to be headlined by Nickelback. This tour is confirmed to start in Albuquerque in May 13th, and will run until sometime in early July. This, will be a 'fuckin' rock show'. Indeed. more to come...
