Event Footage: “Blood, Sweat + Vinyl: DVD Release Party”
Featuring live performances by Evangelista, Oxbow and Ides of Gemini
Shot and Edited by Kenneth Thomas.
The Metro, Oakland, CA – 15 October 2011.
This is a very abbreviated recap of the Release Party that barely scratches the surface of the epic performances by all 3 bands. Ides of Gemini got a great response from the crowd, playing their first show in the Bay Area AND as a Neurot band. Oxbow performed a rare acoustic set on the floor before hitting the stage for a plugged-in assault, once again living up to their title as Best Live Band in the World. Evangelista then took us into the wee hours with their emotionally wrenching set of noise-driven, melodic, dirges – leaving the audience spent.
Also, some of you have been asking if there are ways you can see the film other than buying the box set of attending screenings. We are deep in the process of making the film available through a digital service like Hulu or Netflix, and will post information about that the moment we have it up and running.
