Yakuza / Royal Thunder @ Saint Vitus, 10/20/2012

Fueled by Sailor Jerry's spiced rum and PBR (both were free for a limited time), the BrooklynVegan - BBG CMJ showcase at Saint Vitus on 10/20 (a measly $5 door fee at the door if you didn't have a CMJ badge), sold-out the venue with an eclectic mix of bands that exemplified "heavy music" in many different ways: the searing post-rock/post-hardcore/black metal of Sannhet, brooding cello loops by Helen Money, crusty metallic-hardcore from Enabler, Am-Rep-y hardcore by Fight Amp, searing bluesy hard rock from Royal Thunder and experi-metal from Chicago's Yakuza (check out our recent interview with Bruce Lamont). It was all six bands' only CMJ show.

If you missed Royal Thunder (shame on you), you can still catch them on tour with COC.

Special thanks goes out to Saint Vitus, Sailor Jerry, PBR, Raw Rev and Mercy for help making the show a reality. More pictures and video from Saint Vitus, though unfortunately no pictures of the amazing Sannhet, below...

This crowd is way too fashion conscious and way too eager to pose for the camera. This guy was psyched his brand new Bad Brains shirt he ordered online got to him before the show.

"This post is rife with gorgeous women."

LULZ@ "gorgeous"

Agreed, no sausage comments needed because this event was apparently attended by hipsters and not sausages.

(i.e. hipsters = women in attendance)

BUT STILL SAUSAGE LULZ, AMIRITE?

Sure theres good looking women at this theme bar, but this night the good looking women weren't metal heads in their clone outfits.

The one in the yellow top with upside down cross necklace is Zeena Koda from Sirius XM's Liquid Metal. Total babe.
