Danava, Acid Mothers Temple and Kaiju

I went to the Danava/Acid Mothers Temple show the other day with a bunch of folks. As usual, I dug Danava. Not as mind blowing as when I saw them in California, but still really good.
The bassist was playing an Epiphone EB-3 which looked about a mile and a half long to me. Maybe I am just used to seeing the shorty EB-0s. Here is a video, with as usual, crummy audio (I need to find a digicam with a decent mic). I also saw most of AMT, but was getting really tired after going straight from work to the show and left about an hour into the set. Japanese Psycho-Freakout.

I also saw that Kaiju Big Battel last night. Man, it was fun. There was a special "guest" that showed up. This wrestler names Chris Hero (from underground wresting Ring Of Honor) appeared out of nowhere and made his way into the "ring". I don't know what the angle was, but as you may know...I like the wrastlin...and Hero is a pretty ridiculous and entertaining wrestler. Anyway, Kaiju was good...I recommend it to anyone that likes to see people dressed up as monsters and, um...wrestling. Probably the coolest thing is that they painted the mat too look like a birds-eye view of a city. Roads, grass, parks, etc. Then they put fake buildings all over to make the monsters look like true Kaiju. The fun part is that there was a gigantic projection screen and an aerial camera shooting and projecting. Through the camera lens, the monsters, buildings and roads all looked like a real Japanese monster movie...which was just plain cool.

Oh, and if you ever get a chance to see "Stephen King's The Mist"...don't. It sucked.

Kaiju Big Battel - Providence

If you don't know what Big Battle is:

1 half underground wrestling

1 half anime

1 half muppet show

1 half monster movie (of the Kaiju variety)

Yeah, yeah, I know that equals 2 but whatever. This stuff is fun and lets face it...we all have a little love for the Squared-Circle, no?

From the Big Battel emailer:

Dammit. Busted.

Well, though the music was REALLY good, the show was incomplete over at the Eazy Axxess tonight. At around 12:10 or so, things got shut down by "the man". I came a little late and missed Dave & Steve which sucks...but Plows were good! They had just the right amount of early 80's kinda punkish, stop/start mixed in with their heaviness. After that, was Disappearer. I haven't seen them in years, but last time I saw them was also the first time I saw them, and I immediately became a huge fan. They had this excellent CD demo that was in a DVD case covered with lunar events. It was sort of see through and had pretty slick graphic design. Anyway, they were killing until the show got shut down. Bummer. Here is a movie to hold you over if you want to relive the moments that they actually got to play.

Of course, no Tides. Boo.

You take pictures...I know you do.

Hey, so I see all you folks at shows snapping photos. Some of you with little mini cams and others with super kewl Dslr gear. I would love to show your photos right here on the main page. I would of course give you credit for your work.

If you or someone you know takes photos at these shows, share please :)

If interested, email me at lotsofnoise{at} (for those that do not know, it is written like that so Frankenstein-mind-control-spider-spam-robots will not get my email...hopefully)
