Above are just a few photos from our Tuesday night of which the highlight was the Death Angel show (w/ special guests Mothership, Photian Schism and Man Eating Giant) at the Black Circle Brewing Co. in Indianapolis, IN that I attended with my lifelong best friend and brother (from another mother) Joshua Hooten.
The photos, clockwise:
- The Death Angel U.S. Tour t-shirt I bought from the band’s merch table (the back also has a design along with the U.S. Tour itinerary. Also a guitar pick and drum stick personally handed to me by lead guitarist Rob Cavestany and drummer Will Carroll, respectively.
- Man Eating Giant (MEG) logo t-shirt from their merch table, where I also nabbed a 3-song CD and a drink koozie.
- A pic of Josh and just prior to Death Angel’s face-melting set to a packed house.
- Pacos Taqueria where Josh and I dined. I got the asada quesadilla which was delish and came with creamy sour cream, cilantro-strong pico de gallo and lettuce. I washed it all down with a Sprite. By the way, their tomatillo green salsa verde was one of the best I’ve ever had. I introduced it to Josh who tried it with blind faith (saying I’ve never lied to him) and he dug it as well.
It was great being front-to-the-left to witness one of my guitar heroes nuke my brain with is ridiculous riffing and scintillating solos. The whole band was very tight and precise.
Death Angel is a pioneering American thrash metal band from the San Francisco/Oakland, California Bay Area, formed in 1982. We discovered them around 1988 on their sophomore album Frolic Through the Park.
