May 9th, 2018. It’s been a little over a year since I have seen Nile and probably close to 10 years since I have watched Soulfly do their thing on stage. The best venue in the Kansas City area, The Riot Room, was the host for the evening. This place has been a staple for big tours coming through the Midwest now. Bands that you would think only do bigger theaters are stomping some ass in this little bar that has a maximum occupancy of 280 people. The stage is tiny, the pit is small but the atmosphere is always amazing. Doors opened. People swelled in. Beers started flowing. Let the metal begin.
