Preview: Weedeater at Outland

Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

Weedeater's fourth album "Jason … The Dragon" was delayed for a spell due to the self-inflected gunshot wound that cost bassist-vocalist "Dixie" Dave Collins his toe. The accidental shotgun blast also caused Weedeater to miss a show at Carabar in spring 2010. These are the kind of hijinks you expect from a Southern sludge trio goofy and irreverent enough to release an album called "And Justice For Y'all" - or one called "Jason… The Dragon."

Now that Collins' foot is in working order, the new LP is out and Weedeater is coming back to town to trounce Outland with help from Saviours, Bison B.C. and Fight Amp.
