October 27th, and the doors open early, 6.30 pm on a rainy, northern California Thursday evening. And despite the rain, the room is packed, right from the start: Sacramento's own FallRise, together-again for this show, open the evening at 7 pm, followed by Gemini Syndrome, Red Sun Rising, and headliners Sevendust, with just a couple more dates left on this major tour.

Sevendust, Ace of Spades, Sacramento
Sevendust: always a pleasure to see and hear these guys. Much loved by the fans, and the band is truly appreciative of the goodwill and appreciation shown to them. So many in the crowd had spent all the previous weekend out at Aftershock, and here they were, on a rainy, weekday-workday night, filling the Ace of Spades to the brim and enjoying Sevendust and the supporting bands. Vocalist Lajon Witherspoon, visibly moved by the love and appreciation shown by the crowd, giving it back by the bucketful: setlist included Pieces and Hero from 2007's "Next", Face to Face from "Seasons",  Praise from "Animosity", and of course finished with Thank You from the latest album, Kill The Flaw.

Gemini Syndrome: so good to see them playing to a packed house!!! Playing songs from both their latest album, Memento Mori, and their debut album, Lux, they are collecting new fans--Synners--at every stop on the road. If last night was the first time you saw them, you'll want to check out both of these albums ASAP. Also check other posts here, and here, and here, and here!

Red Sun Rising
Red Sun Rising, Ace of Spades, Sacramento
Red Sun Rising: setlist included a cover of Alanis Morissette's Uninvited, plus the single that is seeing a lot of radio airplay, Amnesia. Fans of Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin should check these guys out! (I would rather have liked the red sun to have been rising over the stage, because that would have meant some light... no light, no photos... the ones I have I am not pleased with, and if this Red Sun Rising gallery disappears from the website in a few days, it's only because I'm not happy with the quality of the images. Hopefully there will be another opportunity to see them sometime soon, with daylight.)

Sammy Karlin, FallRise
FallRise:  good to see these guys again! Now do tell... what's the next step???
