watch the Caleb Scofield benefit show w/ Cave In, Converge, Zozobra, guests & more
To honor the late Caleb Scofield, his bands Cave In, Old Man Gloom and Zozobra played a benefit show with their pals Converge and The Cancer Conspiracy in Caleb's hometown of Boston on June 13 at Royale. The show streamed live, and that stream has since been archived and can be watched below. "There are some audio issues during The Cancer Conspiracy set, that get remedied quickly. Thanks for watching," Converge writes.
Cave In started their set with Caleb's brother Kyle on bass and frontman Stephen Brodksy on acoustic guitar, and they covered Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" during that portion of the set. They also dedicated "Heartbreaks, Earthquakes" to Caleb's parents and broke out "Tension in the Ranks" for the first time since 2004. For the second half of the set, Converge's Nate Newton took over on bass and Brodksy moved to electric guitar, and they broke out "Off to Ruin" for the first time since 2006.
For Zozobra's set -- the band that Caleb fronted -- Aaron Turner (of Isis and Sumac), Kevin Baker (of All Pigs Must Die and The Hope Conspiracy), Stephen Brodsky, and Zozobra's own Adam McGrath shared vocal duties. Adam played bass, while Stephen Brodksy and Nate Newton both played guitar, and both of the band's drummers (JR Conners and Santo Montano) were on hand for the show.
100% of the proceeds from the show were donated to the Scofield family. Watch the full show video and see the setlists from all the bands below.
Isis are also reuniting under the name Celestial for a Caleb Scofield benefit in LA on October 13, which also includes Cave In, Old Man Gloom, Pelican, and 27.
