So much to say about this one. I hung out with so many old friends at the show that I only ended up video’ing the Deathryders set. There were a ton (6 or 7) of bands there and the cafe was packed. It was really nice to see everyone show up for the memorial. Pat Stratford was even there, glad to see him out for this.
Deathryders are Dustin Stratford (Charlie’s son), Jakobe Ares (playing Lyon Wong’s guitar), Brian Hanover, Charles Albright playing a set of mostly Tales of Terror songs. I did not catch the bass player’s name.
So why, you ask, did I decide to post this on Mediocre Monday? Well, 2 reasons. First, I had my laptop with me so I could record a multitrack off the soundboard but Matt was super busy so I decided to rely on the Rode mic instead for audio… and then something went wrong with the mic. I dropped it right before the set, but I have beat the hell out of that thing and it always worked fine. I think I finally killed it.
Anyway, sorry. Maybe they will do another show so I can make up for this. If anyone has decent audio for the full set, please let me know.
