The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

Description

Blue Öyster Cult (BÖC) is the thinking man’s heavy metal group. Put together on a college campus by a couple of rock critics, they maintained a close relationship with a series of literary figures including Eric Von Lustbader, Patti Smith and Stephen King. Science fiction and horror were frequent subject matters in many of their songs as they turned out some of the more listenable metal music of the early and mid-’70s.

Blue Öyster Cult released their self-titled debut album in January 1972. The band landed in the Top 40 charts in 1976 with their hit single “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” followed by “Godzilla” in 1977 and “Burnin’ for You” in 1981. They have five gold and two platinum albums with sales of over 14 million LPs world-wide.

Although BÖC has undergone numerous band member changes in almost four decades as a band, BÖC has consistently remained active with their songwriting and touring. The current lineup consists of Eric Bloom (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Buck Dharms (lead guitar, vocals), Allen Lanier (keyboards, guitar), Richie Castellano (bass guitar, back-up vocals) and Jules Radino (drums, percussion). A younger audience is now discovering BÖC as a result of “Godzilla” being one of the featured tracks on the video game, “Guitar Hero.”
