What an exciting and CRAZY week in the world of Control the Chaos!

Things have been going about a million miles and hour and it looks like Vegas Molten Metal has oozed all over the Las Vegas valley.

Our latest show updates have been posted, so be sure to check ’em out. We’re happy to announce that we’ll be doing 3 upcoming ALL AGES shows in the coming weeks…

The first is out at the Dumont Dunes for Halloween. CTC is the headliner that night so if you’re a local band that doesn’t mind the drive out to the desert for an insanely METAL good time, then hit us up -we’d love to share the stage! We immensely thank CHUGLIFE for inviting us along!

Secondly, In keeping with the INCREDIBLE momentum and turn-out we had from our legendary Desert Show, we’ve teamed up again with our friends from SexPop Suicide and Shotgunz-N-Gasoline to bring another ALL AGES, North Las Vegas event to DeerSprings Park on 11/1. This should be tons of fun and we expect a full turn out of crazy teens from nearby Shadow Ridge and Centennial H.S. to come show their devil-horns! Bring some money and grab some grub and merchandise. REPREZENT!

Speaking of CHUGLIFE, a big thanks goes out to Chris & Michelle for their continued support of the band. As a result, you should see CTC and Chuglife doing more and more together in the coming weeks including an upcoming Spring Break tour in March 2009 which starts at Lake Havasu and circles through California and Arizona. This will be one PHENOMENAL Spring break and Control the Chaos is proud to be a part of it. Stay tuned for more details and remember that CHUGLIFE is a WAY OF LIFE!

Moving right along… our partnership with Don Melendez (Seventy2) from Crimson Brand has been one of the best things we could’ve done. Don has been responsible for the incredible artwork (including the extremely popular B&W SpiderSkull T-Shirt logo) and our October and forthcoming November Vegas Rocks Magazine ads. The artwork is just SICK, SICK, SICK! Very soon, our web property: will be functional and updated with new concepts from Crimson. So be sure to check it out and we’ll put out an announcement when it goes LIVE! Thanks Don!! (BTW – if you’re a band in need of some great design work, let us know and we’ll pass along your information to Crimson)

With November right around the corner we have to mention 2 MAJOR events coming on our calendar: First up, MISSING BLIND presents the Desert Music Festival (Desfest 08) out in Pahrump, NV on 11/7 & 8th. This will be pure mayhem. 2 days, in the desert, 30 bands, 2 stages and people going out of their minds. CTC is on the bill and Big thanks to Eddie from Missing Blind for putting this together! Second up is Rockfest @ the famous Cheyenne Saloon on 11/14 & 11/15. This one is just as brutal with 20 bands over 2 days! Propz to Justin from Sideshow for letting Control the Chaos take stage at a prime spot right before Death Con 5. U rock man!

Also in late November (11/28) we’ll be back at the Puff Lounge hosted by Vegas Rocks Magazine for another Friday night of METAL. Thanks to our friends from Sister of Pain for securing this spot. Deacon, u da man!

Also, be sure to pick up the NOVEMBER ISSUE OF VEGAS ROCKS MAGAZINE which will have a spotlight on CTC. Sally, Steve – u guys are awesome, thanks so much!! Also BIG KUDOS to Aaron Briese for taking some INCREDIBLE photos during our recent performances which will also be in the mag. Aaron, you’re a friend and a professional! Awesome photos man! THANKS!

Sliding into December we have the Holiday Havoc @ the ever-popular Joint inside the Hard-Rock Hotel & Casino. CTC will be in attendance to check out this hot ticket. We’ll also be making a stop back at one of our favorite home-town spots, the 4 Aces where the staff has been amazing to us! We’ll also be making our presence at a place we’ve been wanting to play for a while- JJ’s on Water St in Henderson, NV. Our December show date there will be announced as soon as it gets finalized.

So… we mentioned 2 All Ages shows and a bunch of 21+ shows, but what about the THIRD all ages show????

Drum roll please…

Control the Chaos is VERY proud to announce that we’ll be playing Valentine’s Day, Saturday February 14th at one of the hottest live music venues on the strip – JILLIAN’S on Fremont St. We’ve teamed up with MONSTER ENERGY drink to take the opening stage for a national act (TBA). As anyone in Vegas already knows, Jillian’s is THE PLACE for today’s hottest acts in music and it is also the premiere venue for some of the best ALL AGES shows in town. Thanks to Nathan from MONSTER, Liz from VSB, Vegas Radio Station 107.5 and CTC’s own Joe Gouveia for getting this booked!! More details to come, so check back often!

Okay… that’s about HALF the stuff that’s going on right now. There’s just too much to cover and my hands are tired of typing.
