Supporting their soon to be released fifth studio album Black Heaven (out March 16th on Nuclear Blast), psych-jam aficionados Earthless have been tirelessly out on the road, and recently pulled into the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
With a psychedelic liquid light show courtesy of Mad Alchemy, Earthless delivered a set that was one part jamming, one part riffing, and all parts heavy. Led by guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, the band put the pedal to the metal and kept it there all night, with no complaints from the near-capacity crowd.
Mitchell, along with the pounding rhythm section of bassist Mike Eginton and drummer Mario Rubalcaba, led the crowd on a guitar-driven journey through space and time, with few stops along the way. Highlighted by the title track of the new record as well as another new track with -surprise surprise – vocals, Earthless delivered a great evening of music.
Opening the show was Kikagaku Moyo, a heavy yet blissfully noisy band from Japan, and Jjuujjuu whose heavy guitar heavy set was the perfect way to start the evening.
Here’s a slideshow with more photos of all three bands by Raymond Ahner:
