Oaklandopolis Back from the Dead!

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

I haven’t posted in over six years but have re-activated the site to share a piece of Oakland’s proud and loud history of darkwave/goth/hard rock that I used to go witness, primarily at the Stork Club on Telegraph Ave. For the site’s relaunch, I recoded all the videos so the work natively in HTML5 without crummy Flash plugins and are also compatible with iOS/portable devices.

Enjoy!

Here’s a late post of video from Death Rock Dive Bar’s May 8th show. This clip is from the mesmerizing set from Portland’s, Magick Daggers. Unfortunately I showed up late and missed one of my early DRBB faves, Swann Danger – I’ll have to find them somewhere else as a ‘make-up’ gig.

New Video – Soriah from Funeris

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Last month’s Funeris at Orbis Nex was treated by another amazing performance by Portland’s Soriah. Featuring Soriah’s Tuvan vocal technique joined by two other musicians and two ritual performers. This video taken with the Canon G9, has the gain boosted heavily in order to make this dark performance visible.

Absence Debuts at The Stork’s Death Rock Dive Bar

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Note: The band Absence as since been renamed Alaric.

Absence

Absence debuted at The Stork’s, Death Rock Dive Bar. What great performance it was! Absence delivered on the promise of the show’s title, a loud harmonic guitar soaked landscape that reminded me a bit of Killing Joke and late 80s darkwave.

Headlining on the bill was Swann Danger, a great sounding trio from Oakland that’s reminiscent of early Siouxsie and Lydia Lunch.
