Trapped Within Purring Machinery

Lost Angeles's own Trapped Within Burning Machinery opened for Badr Vogu alongside Pigeonwing at the Redwood Bar & Grill this past August. For fans of menacing doom and sludge, check out their LP on Black Voodoo Records which pays homage to the movie, The Fifth Element. The artwork is really cool for the record as well. The 1st 2 songs of this set are REALLY long but are amazing nonetheless AND are brand new yet to be released tunes. Besides sounding great, they're all stand up dudes from the Moreno Valley area and are playing a show at Geoff's house on September 24th.

Russian Squares - GuyDance

Back to the Teragram Ballroom, Russian Circles were magnificent. I still have not heard the entire Guidance album... STILL have not had time to listen to it and bask in its glory. Well, I also bought the album but dumbfoundedly there was no download code. Also the cassette of Guidance did not have a download code. I guessed I must've missed the memo that Sarge House no like download code love with their finyls. But on to greener pastures, Russian Circles played a dynamite set and the new songs sounded fantastic!

On a side note: Cloakroom was not ok, the vocals just do not do them justice. I found that the music lacks punch with the vocals. So I terminated the recording of their set...

G-unit Tron Legacy

2008. Murderfest. Knitting Factory (RIP). Daniel Dismal. Converge. Baroness (who I regret not recording, since I didn't know who they were at the time, naturally). Genghis Tron! The metal fest of all fests, this was a blur for me but glad I caught the Genghis at the tail end of their career (I noticed they did some one offs a bit ago, but nowhere near LA). Despite not having a drummer, their drum machine nailed every note!!! Ok, Ok, Ok, that was a bit overboard, but they were fun to watch, listen, and I enjoyed their hype machine! This set is a bit of history, so enjoy!

Dillinger Escape Route

In this startling edition of, I present to you the last possible small club date in Lost Angeles this past August, 15th. Please NOTE: I mastered it as is, the guitars were not set to stun but are buried in the mix. The recognizable riffs in between Greg's vocals/screams are audible but not the best sound quality. I think all my DEP boots have pretty much the same result. Download to your fart's content!
