Velvet Acid Christ at Casselman's, 2/9/13


VELVET ACID CHRIST @ CASSELMAN'S BAR AND VENUE | 2/9/13

At one point or another during Velvet Acid Christ's set, Bryan Erickson became winded, and he joked about how it was the altitude. He then said it was probably that he was out of shape because of too much eating, and then noted how at this age, he would have to eat less and less in order to lose weight. All joking aside, Erickson proved to be a lively performer whose sense of humor did nothing to distract one from the visceral power of this music live.
