Blacktop Mojo, EAON and The Disarmed

July 14, 2021, 8:00 pm



Texas based Blacktop Mojo bring their rock/metal show to The Goss Opera House with EAON from Minneapolis and The Disarmed from Sioux Falls.

Blacktop Mojo’s fieryblend of heavy post-grunge grooves, classic rock guitar riffs, and Southern Metal shredding falls somewhere between Soundgarden and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

EAON is a hard-hitting 3-piece band that lends a hard rock and progressive edge into the core of their mainstream sound.

The new roof attached two years ago to Downtown Watertown’s historic Goss Opera House has earned a first-place recognition.

The Structural Insulated Panel Association recognized the quality of the Goss’ new roof with a top award in its Renovation category at the association’s Building Excellence Awards ceremony last week in Orlando, Fla., according to a press release.

The new $855,000 roof was installed in Summer 2019. Incorporating clear spanning roof trusses and structural insulated roof panels manufactured by Watertown firm and Structural Insulated Panel Association member Enercept, the new roof replaced a structurally deficient roof. By using Enercept’s panels, crews from Hasslen Construction of Ortonville, Minn., were able to complete the roof project more quickly.

Originally expected to take approximately three to four months, the roof renovation project wrapped up in just under three months.

The news release claimed the Goss’ incorporation of the panels was the answer to many of this building’s issues. The release also noted the new roof will protect the 131-year-old iconic building and extend its life for another 100 years.

The Goss roof renovation was part of a $4.75 million renovation project for the entire building.
