The Black Heart Procession

I hadnt been excited for a show in so long. The last time I saw Black Heart Procession play live was in 2001 when they opened for Fugazi at Celebrity theatre. Since being captivated by their live performance I truly fell in love with their records (especially "2" and "The Spell"). The show being at Rhythm Room in Phoenix was another plus. They sound amazing live and I am quickly falling for their new record "Six" which I strongly urge you to go pick up at your local independent record store.

BHP played well over 90 minutes. I only caught video of one song and took one quick iphone photo because I honestly didnt want to do anything but listen.

The Mentors are still around. Great Local support from Reverend Doom and Slut Sister as well as the last minute edition of Dysrhthmia made this a fun night. The show took place 10/16/09 at Jugheads in Phoenix,AZ.

I hadnt heard much of this band before, just new they were all instrumental, which I am usually not into. These guys definitely won me over and have a great new record.

First time seeing these guys. Super impressed. Heavy riffs, tough vocals. Glad they are from AZ

Rape rock legends still around telling bad jokes

drunk on straight edge

Touring bands, local bands and militant straight edge. We were put on notice. 10/3/09 at the Phix in Phoenix,AZ.

when I googled this band's name, a Hannah Montana video popped up as the main results. I pray to the imaginary god that they named themselves after that.


an Arizona all star lineup of dudes who are still straight edge. militant and preachy, just how sxe should be

holdin it down

amplified spirituality

I had seen Reverend Doom many times in the past before the lineup change, when the immortal Timwie was the frontman. This was my first time seeing them with Jx Brown and former Black Hell front Jarrod. The show was at a busy Hollywood Alley on 9/26/09 in Mesa,AZ.

dirty, loud, down tuned doom/sludge.
