After canceling his original show in Seattle in January due to mother nature (I for one really hate snow) Wednesday 13 choose Seattle as the kick off point for his new five week "Summer Of Blood" tour. The band consists of Roman Surman on lead guitar, and a superb job he did, Jack Tankersley on rhythm guitar, Jason "Shakes" West on drums, on bass Troy Dever and, as he says, "the world champion of horror rock and roll", lead vocalist Wednesday 13.

During his 80 minute set, he covered a vast amount of material. Starting the show with a new song "Calling All Corpses" from the album of the same name along with "I Wanna Be Cremated". He then did varied selections from other previous albums including doing a cover tune from his other band "Gunfire 76" the song being "Casualties And Tragedies". After hearing this, I was in hopes he would do a cover from his "other" band "Murderdolls", the song being "My Dark Place Alone", but alas, it was not to be.

After "Casualties And Tragedies" they left the stage but soon returned for their oncor which included three old time favorites "RAMBO", "I Walked With A Zombie" then ending the evening with "Bad Things".

The crowd itself, a 100 or so followers, were a very enthusiastic head bangin', horn wavin' bunch such as myself. Good times, good times.

The following video is "I Wanna Be Cremated" from his latest album.

And his classic "Til Death Do Us Party"

Opening for Wednesday 13 on this part of the tour was "Davey Suidcide", a five piece out of Hollywood, just a basic 80's-ish style rock and roll band and "Kamikazies" a forgettable three piece 70's-ish style rock band from....somewhere.

This was one of those events where I wish they would just get rid of all the openers and have Wednesday 13 do a 2 hour set, now that would be a show.

Over all, a good time was had. This was my fifth time seeing Wednesday 13 and I will go see him for a sixth time when he returns to the pacific northwest as will my friend Ian, who saw them for the first time this night, he will go to see him again.

Until the next show.
