After a sellout forced a second show, Merzbow and Wold teamed up pair of appearances at Saint Vitus on June 4th. Both bands were on their way back from appearances in Tampa for Scion Rock Fest, their only other dates aside from these Saint Vitus shows. Pictures from both the early and late appearances are below.
Merzbow was not solo at the Saint Vitus show, as the Japanese noise artist was joined by drummer Balazs Pandi who provided the insane fills to help punctuate Merzbow's maddening atonal attack. Check out video of both Merzbow/Balazs Pandi's set and Wold's set below, along with both sets of pics.
