Testament and Overkill Dark Roots of Thrash Tour House of Blues Sunset 2/2/2013

 

This show was on a rather creepy Saturday evening at the House of Blues Sunset.   It rained a bit and was just an all around odd night in terms of the scene and the vibe.

What’s cheaper?  Buying you kid a ticket to the show or getting a babysitter? 

There were a surprising number of youngsters on hand to enjoy some thrash metal and hold up the horns at this ultra-packed and sold out show.

Several very young kids seemed to really be enjoying the show.   Ever see a 4 or 5 year old kid rocking out to Overkill?   That was unexpected.

This show was really good, but the one in Anaheim seemed to sound better and had a better crowd.   Both headlining bands sounded better at the prior venue.   This show did have a slightly better set list for Testament, as they played a killer version of “Trial by Fire”.

Seeing lots of people being kicked out was pretty entertaining.   The bouncers did a good job at removing people.  One after another, people were given the boot from the pit.    One guy was carried out with his feet about a foot off the ground, another tried to get tough with a bouncer that he had no chance against ad there were other random “ejectees” that seemed rather displeased.   People can be pretty funny when they get thrashed at a thrash concert.
