watch never-seen videos of The Locust & Cattle Decapitation at 924 Gilman + Get Hustle
We recently posted never-before-seen footage from The Locust's 2002 tour OOPS! The Tour, which was with Arab On Radar, Lightning Bolt, and other regional acts varying by date. In 2007, after releasing New Erections, The Locust went on a similarly styled tour with their San Diego neighbors Cattle Decapitation, and we're now posting never-before-seen footage of those two bands at the legendary Berkeley venue 924 Gilman (which also recently released some of its own classic footage as part of a fundraiser to help the venue during these concert-less times).
We've also got a video of Get Hustle, who are on The Locust member Justin Pearson's label Three One G. Justin writes:
With the lingering quarantine and barrage of police brutality due to systemic racism in America, perhaps this might ease the pressure in our collective brains on social media feeds as the internet toilet is constantly flushing things through the sewer of the web. Here is a journey into the past of weird and progressive music, that I was able to take part in with my friends and family. The Locust and Cattle Decapitation footage was from a tour that The Locust did on the heels of the release of New Erections. We were trying to create something along the lines of what the Oops tour had, and ventured out around the US with Cattle Decapitation and Daughters, with regional acts joining us here and there. And of course the footage is from the Gilman Street Project, which is one of the major arteries in our artistic lives.
And to keep in the mindset of the Three One G DNA, here is footage of Get Hustle performing a few years earlier in San Francisco, which was used for Three One G's ``This is Circumstantial Evidence" DVD. All of these band's footage here was filmed by Matt Driscoll (The Pizza Series). Enjoy.
Watch all three videos below.
In related news, Dead Cross -- the band of Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, etc), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox, etc), Mike Crain (Retox, Cunts, etc), and Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer) -- just put out a cover of Black Flag's "Rise Above" in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. The video features footage of police violence against protesters, and it opens with the audio clip of that guy who called into the LA Police Commission's Zoom call and said "Suck my dick and choke on it! I yield my time! Fuck you!" Watch/listen here.
