California Breed Live At The Whiskey A Gogo, Los Angeles, May 28, 2014
I just got back from an awesome first gig with California Breed, happily just up the road (in LA terms…) from where I live. Extremely impressive, smiles all around, at a packed Whiskey A Go Go. The show was extremely energetic. It truly was a great night – and such a relief to hear a guitar player that totally relied on feel or intuition, instead of the overtly technical, sterile and totally pointless widdly widdly four-finger exercises you hear from some other (no names!) bands.
The closing Zep and Purple covers felt a bit unnecessary, but What Is And What Should Never Be and Medusa provided some welcome change in texture and approach, pointing out a future, more diverse direction for this extremely promising, energetic and honest band.
