YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN dropped in to Charlie's for a ferocious set sadly marred by low attendance,. Part of something they refer to as Noh-Wave Collective, they combine Kabuki theater, prog metal, and anaime influences for a sound that's is not easily defined.

RVA one man powerhouse, Gull, contributed an iconoclastic set. Buck Gooter brought their special brand of frentic, high energy "Industrial Blues" -- a sound that at times indirectly references the Clash and other proto-punk influences merged with the sensibilities of jook joint blues mashed up with Ministry.

A good time was had by those who showed, and then they went home.
