Davey Suicide, who are based out of Hollywood, CA played a very energetic thirty minute set. Davey Suicide, have an album, Made in Fire, slated to be released on March 24. Though they were short on time and cramped for space on the stage, they still put on a stellar performance.
Next up were September Mourning, who are currently touring in support of their latest release Volume II, which came out March 2016. They also played a short and solid thirty minute set that included material mostly from their latest two releases Volume I and Volume II.
Co-headliners, Combichrist, based out of Atlanta were next to take the stage. As drummer Joe Letz had members of the front of the stage hold his floor tom, he and percussionist Nick Rossi stared to pound of lout beats, the rest of the band made their way onto the stage. Letz then threw his floor tom onto the rest of the rest of the drums, which kept his drum tech busy piecing the kit back together as Letz started to bang away. Singer Andy LaPlegua, guitarist Eric 13 and bassist Brent Ashley, along with Letz and Rossi played for a solid hour, focusing on material off of This is Where Death Begins, We Love You, and Making Monsters.
Chicago based Dope closed out the evening with performance filled with lots of video, flashing lights and fog that filled the club. Singer Edsel Dope, guitarist Virus, bassist Acey Slade, and dummer Racci Shay, played material that spanned a majority of their releases, the latest being Blood Money Part 1. The also focused on material from No Regrets, American Apathy and Group Therapy, as well as playing Dead Or Alive’s “You Spind Me Round (Like a Record)”, Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell” and NWA’s “Fuck the Police”. As the band played, the band’s logo, lyrics and other images were displayed on the large LCD screens that were behind the band on stage. The Seattle crowd thoroughly loved the performed and showed their appreciation by singing along with singer Dope.
