Seeing Bay Area Black Metal gazers Deafheaven on these pages should be no surprise- we’ve been absolutely in love with the quintet since we first heard them on 2011′s Roads to Judah and with their 2013 effort Sunbather to go off, it’s no wonder they’ve keep graduating to larger and larger rooms; the symphony needs its space. As an FYF kick off show, the band headlined alongside Justin Pearson’s art-rock bolstered hardcore band, Retox and (fellow) Bay Area act, the black metal/doom/noise duo Wreck and Reference opening. Photos from the night are below.
