Hellbelly is a hard rock/metal band on tour from Olympia, WA with two shows in the Bay area this weekend. Catch them at Winter's Tavern in Pacifica on Friday December 2nd, and at the Stork Club in Oakland on Saturday December 3rd. This tour is the first since the release of their 2nd full length album Run For God's Sake on Rock Therapy Records.
Collectively the members have shared the stage with Melvins, Rage Against the Machine, L7, Everclear, The Presidents of The United States of America, Supersuckers, Tad, Throw Rag, and The Circle Jerks just to name a few. Live is what these four do, as veterans they command the stage with a no frills attitude often exposing the gimmick bands of today for what they are. Their new album, Run For God’s Sake, continues to evoke social commentary while punching their fans in the gut.
Hellbelly is loud and unapologetic; they take the stage with nothing to lose. Every night the audience is reminded of what high energy, organic, honest and heavy music is supposed to be. Folks become fans because they have been part of an authentic experience that has no pretentious ideas of pseudo acceptance by the masses. Case and point, if you feel like you want to impress them with top shelf liquor, hotel sweets, or any other expensive promises, they would much rather have another Marshall or Ampeg cab so they can be even louder, oh and maybe a pack of new socks.
