September 20th, Saturday, 9:30pm Voodoo Lounge on Mission St., San Francisco,
Coffin destroy the Voodoo Lounge!
night of metal assaulted the sushi serving lounge on Mission street
in San Francisco. First up was the blistering Blitzenhamer; these East
Bay masters of metal energized and electrified the crowd at the Voodoo
lounge for the evening to come.
Next up was the mighty Concrete Coffin themselves! The South City Thrashers
performed a eight song set. The Voodoo lounge became the Voodoo pit
during the show, as a large portion of the crowd started moshing. The
club was rocked by the Coffin; Highlights of the show occurred during
CC songs such as "Caged Rage", "Stoned To Death",
and "Denial" where the pit reached its peak. Joe dedicated
"Into the Pit" to the late Paul Baloff of Exodus. Aki was
sporting his latest axe of destruction with a new trans-red flametop
Jackson. Riffmaster Tito and Aki debuted a choreographed intro to "Stoned
to Death" at this show, marking the first public performance of
the piece. Concrete Coffin hopes that the venue will continue to support
metal shows once it changes ownership in October.
Last up was Doppler, who's instru-numetal band was tuning up for a tour
of LA and southern California. Doppler's sonic wall of sound showed
off their musicianship well. The band was musically tight! Doppler had
to drive to LA for a show the next day, let's hope they made it safely
driving through the night.
