The Top Band on My Aftershock List: Red Fang (drinks beer)
The best way to introduce yourself to Red Fang is through the following video, which I would say is perhaps the most entertaining video ever written.
Red Fang has toured and visited Los Angeles a few times in the past couple of years, and every time work gets in the way. I guess my boss wants me to show up coherent the next morning. I sense a conspiracy.
Since their videos are so hysterically funny, here are a couple more for you.
Red Fang was formed in 2005 and they have three albums out; Red Fang (2009), Murder the Mountains (2011) and Whales and Leeches (2013). All three are awesome. The quartet is made up of guitarists Bryan Giles and David Sullivan, bassist Aaron Beam and drummer John Sherman.
Dan Adler was raised in Southern California to a mom and dad, one of whom appreciated Creedence and left wing anti-war politics. By the teenage years, Dan became obsessed with Black Sabbath, listening to the same seven albums repeatedly for 5 years. During this time, his favorite concert experience was seeing Metallica open for a bunch of bands that no longer exist and winning the 1st ever Santa Cruz Air Guitar contest. After several years in Africa listening and dancing to Chimurenga music, Dan returned to have the two best children in the world, one of whom spends a lot of time at concerts with him. What a lucky dad!
