Local show that happened at a place called Anchors Up, which is the basement of this killer vinyl/music shop called Welfare Records. Bands playing were :
Age of End (friends brother's bend)
A Shattered World
Buck Hunter (an awesome band who I didn't know)
Full Blown Chaos
Awesome show overall, and the only thing that really bumped me was mic issues from AoE's singer (was even mentioned in the Return to Pit review) and way too much hardcore dancing during Full Blown Chaos - and they fucking encouraged it!
Buz was very nice and I first asked him if he was using the new LACS "White Devil" (or is it White Widow - I'm awful with names) and he said no, but instead busted out a Universe with a single EMG (707) I presume - he also happened to drop the SS.org bomb cause it turns out he bought it off there. He was happy to oblige me with a picture of it
They played a killer set and of the top of my head I remember Giles, Sanctity of Brothers, We Are Not Anonymous, The Great Dividers, Black Hearts Now Reign, Crowkiller and one other.
Some kid caught a drum stick - threw it back on stage - and I sniped it back up and give it to my friend who's a drummer (also got him Portnoy's signature) so needless to say he decided to return the favor and grab me one; most excellent
Pics with Buz were had, I snagged a shot of his "pedal board" (a Boss Tuner, Maxon OD, NS-2 and another tuner ) and then we said our thanks - shook hands - and left
Grabbed a sweatshirt on my way out and tipped the merch dude who in favor gave us free pins
right on man! I'd love to meet unearth, they're one of the first 7-string bands i heard!
But i'd want to meet ken too
