Alive and Kickin’

No need to drive across the causeway to see a cool show, the music scene is alive and well here in Davis. Last night had something for everyone- rock, metal and electronic music- all within a few blocks.

I started the night out at Luigi’s Fungarden at 213 E St. The sister location to Sacramento’s Luigi’s, this pizza/music venue is fantastic. Upstairs you’ll find pizza and beer, downstairs a roomy concert space. I appreciate the chairs lining the side- sometimes I like to chill out during a show. Ggreen performed its brand of spazzy, lo-fi rock. Liz Liles killed it on the drum kit as usual. As a kid, I remember romping around this basement space back when it was Discoveries. Now I’m all grown up discovering cool bands.

Onto the revamped G St. Wunderbar. All the metal heads came out, keepin’ it real with leather jackets adorned with illegable metal logos. Evil Plan played agressive metal-core. Though they failed to get a circle pit going- except for one enthusiastic gray-haired dude- Evil Plan rocked. Next up was local band Embodied Torment, featuring KDVS’s Malefactor. This band unleashed brutal, technical death metal- not for the faint of heart. The band features a female drummer who is married to the vocalist. Ah, love and metal!

It brought me back to junior high, watching my ninth-grade English teacher, Mr. Oster, in Enthroned. In fact, I bumped into a few old friends from junior high. I was head banging next to my old hesher friend. He was sporting a Cannibal Corpse shirt, I had on my Godflesh T- it was just like old times!

The night ended across the street at Woodstock’s Glow. I missed DJ Rogue’s set but caught a guest DJ spinning some sweet dubstep and glitch-hop. The soothing sound of bass wobble was the perfect night cap to an evening filled with diverse local music.
