SHINEDOWN BLOWS UP THE GRAND SIERRA!

Words by WILLIAM K Images by Kevin Graft #KGROKFOTO SHINEDOWN blasts into 2022 rockin’ their sold out concert at the Grand Sierra Resort Casino in Reno after releasing the new single and title to their upcoming album “Planet Zero”. Opening the show was relative newcomer from Seattle Ayron Jones.  I’ve been following Ayron for over […]

Fit For An Autopsy – Roseville, CA

FFAA held nothing back in their first ever show at Goldfield Trading Post in Roseville, CA packed to the brim. Surprisingly this mid size venue sported some amazing lighting and good clear sound for its size.  The second FFAA came on, it was an instant pulse through the crowd of roughly 500. Four giant poles […]

Ghost – Volbeat – Twin Temple tour kick off in Reno!

Review by William K Photography by Kevin Graft Twin Temple kicked off the night with their satanic lounge act.  Hella kitschy and a lot of fun.  They were well received by the crowd making many new fans. Volbeat blasted out of the gate ripping through a massive set of songs mainly from the last few […]

EXODUS & TESTAMENT – FOX THEATER – OAKLAND, CA 11/27/21

Before you say something, yes I know there is no Death Angel coverage in this article, that would be because of three hours stuck in traffic on the drive to Oakland from Sacramento, which realistically should only be about an hour and a half, but I won’t bore you with the details.  After arriving in […]

JINJER at ACE OF SPADES, SACRAMENTO, 10/28/21

Something told me walking in to Ace this night that I would be bored with three bands I really knew nothing about and have never really listened to, with the exception of Suicide Silence who I haven’t seen live since Mitch Lucker was still the singer. However, I ended up not just being thoroughly entertained, […]

Cradle of Filth with Once Human photos and live review from Sacramento Ace of Spades on 10/24/2021

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY REVIEW & PHOTOS– ACE OF SPADES, SACRAMENTO, CA 10/1/21

Months ago when BLS first announced this tour, I whole heartedly thought it would get cancelled before it actually happened, but now we’ve seen several tours and festivals that have kicked off with mostly success in the wake of Covid 19, and boy was I happy this one happened. Not only is Zakk Wylde a […]

FRANK TURNER & THE SLEEPING SOULS – ACE OF SPADES – 10/25/19

Frank Turner holds a special, weird, unusual place in my heart because when I discovered him it was a time in my life where I needed to hear a like minded voice, so I usually like to make every effort to see him when he comes to play live.  I was leaving for the show […]

AT THE GATES – HOLY DIVER, SACRAMENTO, CA – 10/24/19

If you were to tell me that At The Gates were going to play a venue that only holds around 200 people in Sacramento on a Thursday night I would tell you you’re bat shit crazy. But, this was the case. And what a night it was to be had for everyone. In an absolutely […]

The Struts @ Ace of Spades – Sacramento, CA – 7/5/19

    As I sit and watch the magnificent line of Struts fans slowly make their way inside, I’m reminded why I always show up about 30min after the doors open-because there is absolutely no need to wait in those lines in mid size venues, and I’m also pretty blown away by the incredible mix […]

MUSE – Sacramento – Golden1 Center – 3/7/19

Out of my comfort zone i went for a show that every person I know has told me they put on an absolutely monstress performance. I was not disappointed. On album, the band can sometimes seem to be a bit slow and unfortunately makes them slightly boring. This is not the case with their live […]

GHOST Leaves Sacramento Screaming for More

GHOST – 11/13/18 – SACRAMENTO COMMUNITY THEATRE Photo Credit: http://www.joshpiersonphotography.com I’ll be the first to tell you that I have no idea how or why Ghost has gotten as popular as they are, and in fact when they announced this tour and the incredibly large venues they’re playing I actually asked my friend “do you […]

Slash w/Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators with Classless Act

SLASH w/Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators – Hollywood Palladium – 10/16/18 When a person such as me spends time in LA, pretty much any amount of time in LA, I start to feel at home every single time. It’s amazing that after years of traveling back and forth from Sacramento to LA that I haven’t […]

Styx With Tesla Sacramento 060218

As I wandered into a semi busy amphitheater that sits about an hour north of Sacramento it was very apparent how many people were here for the opener – Tesla. And why not? They are after all hometown heroes to some degree, and definitely for an older audience that was more about the 80’s hair […]

SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, BEHEMOTH AND TESTAMENT – SACRAMENTO, CA – 5/13/18

My entire concert life has been riddled with Slayer, for good or bad, on and off days, they’ve just always been there lurking in the background as a band that I never went out of my way to see because they were always there, with the exception of one time at The Warfield in San […]
