On Thursday October 9th 2014 as an early birthday gift, I went to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to see the Metal Gods themselves. . . JUDAS PRIEST!! Here’s a diorama I recently built and photographed: I made a few prints of these on photo paper with the intention of getting them signed by the band, but alas, I of course never ran into them. I did, however get a corporate luxury box rather than the general seating area. Two things turn 30 this year: “Defenders of the Faith” by Priest, and Baron von Brunk.
