at Neck of the Woods (see times)
Midnight Chaser
These guys embody the spirit of ‘70s hard rock and NWOBHM so well, but they carry a American sense of swagger and badassery. The band took used the forty minute set to debut a whole new arsenal of tracks and they made sure to throw in a few older favorites as well. First among these was their classic head banger ‘Swords for Hire’, but the new stuff quickly followed. Unfortunately new vocalist Josh Rodstein wasn’t nearly as upfront in the mix as I would have liked, but he still easily impressed with his clear, full throated and melodic singing. Fans of Midnight Chaser’s debut record, Rough And Tough, that may be worried about the change in the lineup can rest easy- the new stuff is the same Midnight Chaser you know and love, but with a couple new friendly faces onboard. The eternal mastermind behind the Chaser, guitarist Stephen Lauck, was eager to crack jokes with Rodstein as the set went on, and his big goofy smile was utterly infectious.

Space Vacation
Space cadets from San Francisco, these guys play Heavy Metal the way it should be! Galloping Maiden riffs, chugging Motorheadbanger rhythms and Def Leppard vocal melodies converge into one on “Heart Attack”, which has to be one of the rad-rest albums I’ve heard in a while. It’s not like it’s not been done before – most notably by those aforementioned bands in the early 80s – but these beer guzzling sickos actually mix it all together on songs like ‘Boston Massacre’, ‘Bro Hammer’ and ‘End Of The Bender’. Yup, Space Vacation are right up there alongside Cauldron and Barn Burner in revisiting NWOBHM era metal viz air guitar marathon soloing, excessive drum rolls, headbands, and harmony singalong songs. As luck would have it, there have been line-up changes since the recording of this album, but whatever their trip, I’m sure Space Vacation will always have plenty out there for old school headbangers.

The Resistance Panel
Sam is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist who takes on the bass, keys and lead vocals for The Resistance Panel. His lyrics are dark and honest, but always sprinkled with a shred of hope. From Sevilla, Spain, Manuel brings his Black Sabbath influenced style of play to The Resistance Panel. As creative as he is technically gifted, Manuel brings a flair and style along with ferocious riffs. Tony Loftin brings his hard-hitting, groove-based thunder to the Bay Area adding a Bonham-esque pocket playing style, double-bass metal attack, and backing vocals to the Resistance Panel lineup.
