My ears are still ringing from last night's set of music by THE YELLING. Holy Shit!! We've been following this band for months and last night's performance was their coming of age party. This band will not play rooms this small for much longer, or probably not rooms anymore at all. Like RAGE meets WOLFMOTHER, with the full package.THE BLACKS were the first band to do back-to-back Rumbles, playing SF the night before and fighting traffic to get down to Hollywood for their first ever LA show. The tambourine explosion took place all over the crowd, and no one dared piss off frontwoman Louisa. Their set tore the cover off the ball.
San Francisco's BIRDS & BATTERIES opened up the evening with a number of new songs not on their brilliant record, and sadly, no photos turned up (yet) of their set. Michael Sempert's vocals have the most comforting affect and on top off it all, they're probably some of the nicest people you'll meet.
Resident DJ's MiCHAEL did what they do - turn it out!
Thanks to everyone (Aisah) who helped and who came out and fought that crazy traffic.Thanks for the photos from Nassir!
