but this was a show unlike any the band had ever played before.
Unlike the typical gig in a cramped, sweaty nightclub, the setting for
CAULDRON's first show on British soil is a much more spectacular one. The
band opened for fellow Canadian legends ANVIL at the top-secret premiere for
the new documentary movie, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil", performing at the
screening infront of thousands of film critics, industry insiders, and a
handful of lucky fans.
CAULDRON frontman JASON DECAY, who has a brief appearance in the film,
describes the surreal event:
"On Sunday we played our first show in London at the Shepherd's Bush Empire,
it was big enough to get lost in and we fucken played with ANVIL our old
friends which was fucken awesome for our first show in London.
"We've played shows with Anvil before in Canada but none of them were as
huge as this. The shit hit the fan and the rice exploded all over the
place, even in the beer which disappeared. It was one big party, we got
rite fucked rite up drunk and we intend to do the same tomorrow in London at
our show with Gama Bomb. The show tomorrow will be our first full set on UK
soil and it should be great."
