Bloodhag's last show was this Friday night in Seattle. Label mates of ours and long time friends and all around excellent dudes, they went out with a bang and will surely be missed. I don't think I've ever seen a band that can out-heckle a heckler quite like Bloodhag. All the members have new projects, the only one of which I've heard is one of my favorite local groups Android Hero. Oh yeah, and some shitty turd called White Jazz.
If my observations are correct this would put The Ruby Doe as the last remaining Seattle rock band from our birthing era that was around before us. Are we really Seattle's second longest standing rock band that hasn't broken up or gone on some kind of hiatus? I'm aware the The Accused has been around since I was born, but didn't they stop playing at one point?
In any case, good night sweet Bloodhag. For me this is truly the end of an important piece of my personal musical history. Bloodhag was instrumental in plucking a fledgling Akimbo from our cribs and showing us the proverbial ropes. I consider all you guys good friends and fathers of Seattle metal.
(Note: The "crap" playing in the background sounds like Harshing your Mellow?)
