Black Meddle: Cradle of Filth, Nachtmystium, Daniel Lion, 2/9/11eye @ the Regency Ballroom

Everything old is new again. As I removed the gum from my purse in preparation for the Regency Ballroom security guidelines, I laughed at how ridiculous it is. Regardless, I was excited to return to one of my old haunts in SF for a metal show. The experience wouldn’t have been complete if I didn’t […]

Bringer of Death: Danzig, All Shall Perish @ The Regency Ballroom, 6/27/10

You could easily separate those leaving Pride from those going to Danzig as I walked along Van Ness. Once in line, I robotically told security as I let them examine my things ‘no, I don’t have any gum or pens or food’ when the guy looked at me and said, ‘I know, I’ve seen you […]

Accentuated: Bullet For My Valentine, Chiodos, Airbourne @ The Regency Ballroom, 5/16/10

The dreaded Regency Ballroom security. I remembered to remove the pack of gum and the pen from my bag, but I forgot my meal replacement bar, since, you know, I don’t eat dinner when I’m at these shows. They made me throw it away. I laughed at the ridiculousness, shook my head, and then the […]

Hot Topic: H.I.M., We Are The Fallen, Dommin @ The Regency Ballroom, 4/20/10

Once upon a time, there was a teenage girl who was into rock music. Her room’s centerpiece was a stereo system, otherwise decorated with Rolling Stone magazines and posters of musicians on the wall. She hand-painted her converse, wore hand-me-down clothes, and had self-dyed hair. While she was friendly with the jocks, the preps, the […]

Accessory to Murder: Killfest| Overkill, Vader, God Dethroned, Warbringer, Evile, Woe of Tyrants @ The Regency Ballroom, 4/18/10

“There is a correlation between hotter weather and more murders in nearly every US city.” It was the warmest day San Francisco had seen in 2010. On my way to the venue, an unusual number of shady characters catcalled and said unrepeatable things to me. I was filled with murderous intentions. Upon entering the venue, […]

Post-Punk: Public Image Ltd. @ The Regency Ballroom, 4/17/10

I started watching MTV when I was 8 or 9 years old, when it was in it’s prime. While I played instruments, I always kinda knew I wanted to do something in music that didn’t involve actually playing the music. I just took about a 10 year detour before re-realizing that and starting this site. […]

Viking Swords and Blast Beats: Fear Factory, Amon Amarth, Eluveitie @ The Regency Ballroom, 4/9/10

Running on fumes after last night’s whirlwind Golden Gods trip, it’s a wonder that in the 10 minutes I had at home between work and this show, I remembered to remove the gum and pen from my bag before embarking to The Regency Ballroom. The security situation at this place makes me laugh every time. […]

Headbanger's Ballroom: Arch Enemy, Exodus, Arsis @ The Regency Ballroom, 2/8/10

It wasn’t my favorite day. First, I received an email from a certain relative suggesting that I use part of my trust fund to get some work done. And by work, I mean plastic surgery. Then, I had to communicate with my ex-boyfriend, which reminded me of exactly why he is my ex. These are […]

The Teaches of Peaches: Peaches, Amanda Blank, Wallpaper @ The Regency Ballroom, 11/27/09

It was one of those nights that happens about once a month where I wanted to clone myself and attend multiple shows: Cannibal Corpse at The Warfield, Norma Jean at Slim’s, and Peaches at The Regency Ballroom. I chose the least likely show, Peaches. It was one of the increasingly rare nights where The Hipsters […]

Red, White, and Green: GWAR, Job For a Cowboy, The Red Chord @ The Regency Ballroom, 11/24/09

Back in 2006, when I was still new to SF, I went to see GWAR at The Warfield. I had always wanted to see them. However, I had spent most of the early 2000’s out of the metal scene, trying to learn to love hip hop and indie rock because that was what the guy […]
