Poison the Well, the best metal/hardcore band of 2009 (as voted by Miami New Times) is playing a hometown-ish gig on August 22 at Culture Room. This date should be extra special, not only because of the whole homecoming after a brutal tour thing, but it's also the last show they have scheduled before taking a much needed rest in preparation of their European tour (which starts on November 2). That means anyone attending this show is almost certainly in for an almost unforgettable experience, as Poison the Well is known for high octane live shows which whip their hardcore faithful into a frenzy that can only be described as apocalyptic. Tickets are just $9.99 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Please note the video after the jump isn't an official PTW music video, but it should be.
