Melted Elk- The Colony, Sacramento Ca. 6/23/18 Live

I walked in to the middle of Melted Elk’s set so I only got about 10 minutes.. but it gives you a good idea of what they are all about. Interesting, unique band. No guitar- Bass (w/effects board), Drums, and vocals. Check it out- it sounded about as good as I have heard The Colony sound.
By the way, Charlie Charlie Magikarp Passarell played drums for the band. This show was the first time they had ever played together- they met earlier in the day! That’s impressive.

SICK BURN – Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 6/6/18 RAD Hardcore

I finally got to see Sick Burn- the new band with Craig, Anthony & Lory from RAD. Great stuff! Still intense and the new songs rule. This an extended set so we could all eat cupcakes during the intro. Craig held up well despite the extra 5min set length.

/ROOT_DIR – Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 6/6/18 Nerd powerviolence

Well, I don’t know how to describe these guys. 2 nerds who sing about IT stuff and have song titles like “I fucking love sand”. Powerviolence/grind with catchy as hell breakdowns. This may be their last show for a while. Enjoy! I hope their band name doesn’t screw up my wordpress site.

XTOMHANX – Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca 6/6/18 CHRCH

XTOMHANX played last night at the cafe and they were LOUD. Like, bleed through my hearos earplugs and make my ears ring loud. I noticed that my camera was vibrating badly about halfway through their set, so I used my super professional vibration dampening device- MY SHOE. Yes, I put my monopod on my shoe to make the vibration stop.
They were great- best show I have seen of theirs. Adam played the drums so hard that he knocked over a cymbal stand while playing.

The Strange Party- Cafe Colonial, Sacramento Ca. 6/3/18 Bat Guano Release Show Roky Erickson

The strange party played a really special set for this show- they broke out some of their really old (and great) songs.. and then they surprised us with an encore of “I think of demons” by Roky Erickson! It was so awesome!! I hope that Jim McLain’s video has more vocals so we can hear Justin a bit better.
