Bakersfield, California has deep musical roots. Acts like Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Jean Shepard, and Susan Raye brought The Bakersfield Sound to a national audience, and the local obsession with musical entertainment endures with groups like The Appletons, Lonely Avenue, Vince Galindo, and Mento Buru. Korn and Adema are also based out of Bako. That all being said, it’s not unusual to find live music at the local venues on any given night, as was the case at Temblor Brewing Company last Thursday.
The fourth stop on The Dangerous Summer’s Coming Home Tour was held in one of our cozier local venues. The small room between Temblor’s bar area and their fermentation room only holds about 200 folks standing, so even a sold out show is an intimate affair. It’s a perfect place for traveling bands to get warmed up for the bigger upcoming venues on tour, in a music-hungry community with a hot crowd.
Headliners The Dangerous Summer worked the crowd with songs Blind Ambition, Sideways, Coming Home, Way Down, Catholic Girls, Fire, Where I Want To Be, and many others. The small crowd in attendance was engaged and thoroughly enjoying the band’s passionate delivery of new and older tracks.
Joining A.J. Perdona and the gang on this tour are Canadian rock band Like Pacific and Virginia-based My Kid Brother. Both bands understood the assignment, and got the crowd worked up before TDS hit the stage. From the opening notes to the last rimshot, this was a hell of a fun show.
There are approximately twenty more dates on this tour, from California to New York, before landing for the closing date in Chicago. If you get the chance, I’d highly recommend checking this one out.
