Warehouse at Hot Tamales

Someone from my Tate Street days recently posted some videos of my old band Warehouse playing the last show of Hot Tamales. Hot Tamales was a Mexican restaurant in Greensboro, NC that had shows in the mid-late 1980s. I played with, and saw a lot of amazing bands there; bands like Token Entry, the Vandals, Flat Duo Jets, and even Gwar! Oh yeah… apparently I was pretty good drummer back in the day.

Unsettled – live at the Caboose, 9/19/1995

 

Unsettled was the first band I played guitar in that played more than a handful of shows. The other guitar player, Chad (closest to the camera) lived in Raleigh, so we often played in or near Raleigh. Chad had the first Dual Rectifier I ever saw – I had never heard or seen anything like it. Chad’s monstrous tone convinced me to get one as well. I was vegan (still am), so I got the rack mounted version, rather than the leather-covered version.
