Skull Fist is in South Dakota the next couple nights. Don’t miss ’em.
Next up after Negative-Zen was Gladius from Portland.
These guys finished with an excellent cover of Helloween’s “Ride The Sky” which I was into in high school (but probably haven’t listened to in almost two decades) before any of the members of Gladius were even born. Does that make me old or the music timeless? Or both?
If you are in the Ashland area on April 20, you can hear Nic play at the Duo piano recital: Nic Temple & Jon Hays.
Earlier moe. photos from the Ashland Armory can be found here.
Last night saw the return of metal to Ashland after about a four year break. Sarcalogos kicked off their West Coast tour at Club 66. Tonight they play in Eureka, California. The rest of the short tour is as follows:
Friday, March 1 in Oakland @ The Pink String
Saturday, March 2 in Fresno @ CYC
Sunday, March 3 in Las Vegas @ Favorites
and Tuesday, March 5 in San Francisco @ Casa Sanchez
If you are anywhere near one of these places, head on over to the venue for an evening you won’t soon forget.
A friend was telling me that I would like Major Jones after happening upon them at Roscoe’s BBQ in Phoenix (between Ashland and Medford) one evening. So last night we headed up old Highway 99 to check them out. By the time they played Black Sabbath’s “Fairies Wear Boots” (about their fourth or fifth song of their nearly three hour set) I realized I had a new favorite local band to follow. Their original songs sounded great, and they covered Robin Trower, The Ramones, Cliff Burton-era Metallica (twice), Radiohead, AC/DC, and Motorhead.
I had given up hope of recording video with a DSLR when the results from my D7000 were so underwhelming. I heard bad things about the audio with the D600 so I hadn’t even bothered to try. However, last night, just for kicks since I could set my camera on a table, I tried taking a couple of short video clips with the default settings and no external mic. The results came out better than my D7000 with an external mic! So now I have to consider actually trying to take decent videos with my Nikon D600 using something better than the default settings and with an external microphone.
