Enter Landman? Metallica Needs Space for Free Gig

October 18, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Beavis and Butthead would be all over this. Rock legends Metallica want to throw a great big party, stage a free concert and treat all their fans to something special. Trouble is, they're all revved up with no place to go.

As drummer Lars Ulrich explained to Reuters: "We've been turned down by some of the finest municipalities in the country..."

Unfazed by this minor setback, Metallica is looking to its fans for support. Anyone who knows of a large parcel of land that is, according to the band, "large enough and fan-friendly enough to accommodate all the diverse Metallica loyalists hungering for this one-of-a-kind event," should contact Metallica immediately at (800) 804-1400 or send e-mail to metallica@elektra.com.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
