Trapt: Ace of Spades, Sacramento, 24th Nov 2012, a set on Flickr.Main act of the night at the Ace of Spades on Saturday, November 24th: Trapt. I'd been concerned about low-lighting all evening (with reason); together with mobile and expressive performers, it makes for not-picture-perfect conditions. They're a little gritty... like the music. I think they work.
Here's the full set of photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alisontoon/sets/72157632099282927/
Tough, hard, yet very, very tuneful. Anthem and progressive and metal. Go see them.
You know what I like in a band: they've got to be musicians, they have to enjoy what they're doing (it shows), they have to be musically-adventurous, great guitar, strong bass, athletic drumming and oh yes, don't forget the great vocalist with expressive stage presence. Trapt have all this in buckets. Go see them.
