I arrived at the Blvd. in Boyle Heights around 6:45. The place was supposed to open at 7 and the first band was supposed to go on at 7:30, but everything got pushed back an hour.
The first band Apocalypsis
, went on at 8:30. They were really melodic but weren't quite my cup of tea. They were all very talented though, and played a really good cover of Fear of the Dark to end their set, despite missing their singer.
The next band was Obscene Carnage
. They were fun to watch, weren't anything unique though.
Then the band I went to see played, Burning at the Stake
. Despite some technical difficulties with Mike's guitar, they played a really good show. If the crowd participated it would've been a lot more fun, though.
I believe their setlist was something like this:
Mangled Among the Heathens
A Prevalent Desolusion
Death is a Chance Taken
When You Die Nothing Happens
performed. They're really awesome, and they're all really talented, especially their drummer and vocalist. They put on a kickass show, but once again, it would've been a lot more fun with some crowd participation.
After their set I had to leave. It was my curfew.
It sucked because I really wanted to stick around and show some support for Reciprocal and Crematorium.
Overall this was a fun show, because the bands that played were all really fun to watch. I bought an awesome shirt from Crematorium for only $2!
