Watch System of a Down (Wake Up The Souls) Live Concert in Los Angeles

System of a Down kicked off their “Wake Up The Souls” tour on April 6th at The Forum in nearby Inglewood, California to positive reviews. To say we’re fans of this all Armenian-American rock band is an understatement, especially since three of the band members attended school in Little Armenia. Having been to their live performances, we know first hand that their concerts are nothing short of an unforgettable out-of-this-world experience. The atmosphere is absolutely electric and the fans always amazingly spirited. On April 23rd, SOAD will be performing a (free) live concert for the first time in Yerevan, Armenia to commemorate the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. If their shows are this incredible outside of Armenia, we can’t even begin to imagine how spectacular it will be in Yerevan. Since we can’t be there in person, we can only hope they live stream the show so we can all participate. And if they make it a pay-per-view event (and maybe donate some of the proceeds to genocide awareness programs), we will be first in line with our credit cards.

The Battle of Sardarabad was a battle of the Caucasus Campaign of World War I that took place near Sardarabad (modern-day Armavir), Armenia from May 21–29, 1918. Sardarabad was only 40 kilometers west of the city of Yerevan. The battle is currently seen as not only stopping the Ottoman advance into the rest of Armenia but also preventing the complete destruction of the Armenian nation. Learn more…
