Jen emailed me and said that she is playing at the Viper Room on the 30th for a Halloween gig. Mel and I drove into Hollywood, stopped off at The Rainbow for some dinner, end perhaps catch a glimpse of Lemmy at the bar, and then walked down to the Viper for some live music.
They were decorated for Halloween and playing imagery from films such as The Shining, Nosferatu, etc. in the downstairs bar. Not too packed tonight. Sound was good, as always. But, as always, their lighting needs some attention. Venues still haven’t figured out the distance-to-the-talent/Saturation ratio on these newer LED stage lights and they simply blow out every spec of texture by just cranking them up three feet from the artist’s faces. Other than that tiny detail, it was a fun night.
Reviews, comments, and possible putdowns for Deluca..
I have no information on this band and have very little recollection of the band this night. It’s not that they were bad, I just can’t remember. I was seeing so many live shows around this time and they all start to blend in together. I couldn’t find anything online about them so if you know anything about the group, or have a page I can link to then just let me know and I’ll get it posted here. Cheers!
