Goblin are probably best known for scoring the soundtrack to Suspiria, Dario Argento’s horror classic, and they’ll be undertaking their first U.S. tour in the autumn. The closest stop is in Chicago on 13 October at the Metro.

Dave Brock and company will be returning to the States for the first time in a while. (Mid-90s?) Unsurprisingly, their nearest tour stop is also in Chicago. This time it’s on the 16th of October at the Logan Square Auditorium.
