A Place to Bury a Band!

Another Thursday night and here I am back at the world famous Casbah. This time to check out All The Saints, Darker My Love, and A place to Bury Strangers. From what I keep hearing A Place to Bury Strangers is going to bring it! Well they brought it alright. However, It wasn't what I expected.


Normally my Thursday nights are based upon my best friend working that night or not. If he is then im there hanging out with him. I have been hearing about All the Saints and Darker My Love as bands to check out. A Place to Bury Strangers not so much. Which is totally okay.


When arriving at the Casbah, All The Saints had already finished their set. I was a little disappointed; however, a motorcycle ride to Oceanside was needed that day. Yes I do ride motorcycles. And NO it doesn't make me hardcore. It puts me at ease kinda of like a quick meditation. ANYWAYS, back to the review of the show!


The All The Saints, the band I missed; are a psychedelic rock band from the mid-south. Does that make sense? The Southern Part of the Midwest. Very garage like with experimental waa waa's unto their beat. I bet they were good live.



DARKER MY LOVE. Now that was the band that brought it! Their rocking good melodic tunes kept me moving and grooving the entire set. The adorable 5 piece band from LA, California. Their music is like a cross between 80's synth-rock with a class of garage. Just imagine, BRMC, The Pretty Things, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre in a pinata. When busted open Darker My Love was the sweet treats inside. What a sweet sweet treat I would have to say.


After Darker My Love, I was ready for the next rocking surprise. Well, it was indeed a surprise when I realized holy shit your band is BBOORRIINGGGG.... Snooze alert right here! Their look was really laid back and rockn roll. I guess they were way way to laid back. Their sound was very much like Suicide a band from New York, not a big fan. In the middle of their set they began with the fog machine. Really? At the Casbah. It was great for photo ops. But a fog machine? This made it a little more sleepy for me, I went to the back bar and hung out. I would rather watch The Return of the Mummy 3 than watch A Place to Bury Strangers. Epic Fail on their part.



Other than that It was a great show. Recap: Bands to check out All The Saints and Darker My Love.
