Pulling the proverbial Rabbit out-of-the-hat, the band Silent Treatment squeezed in a gig at The Viper Room on Friday, June 11, 2010.
The venue, unfortunately, had been running late that night. Their original 9:30 p.m. spot, became a 10:00 to 10:30 p.m. instead. We were more than ready to FIRE IT UP!!
The crowd turned out for this last minute affair, and rocked seriously to seven (7) awesome songs. Beginning their set with “Animal” with its bluesy feel, debuting “Chasing Shadows”, the always popular “Fear” with its quick guitar riffs and heavy drum beat, and ending with “Friends”, ST dedicated to their friends and fans.
The song “Friends”, has been giving Steve Abel’s bass a run for its money with technical difficulties. However; this night was a different. Abel’s thumping bass hit those notes and vibrated with a great deal of satisfaction throughout the club!
Dave Rosales, is always engaging and attentive to the crowd. He switches easily between playing rhythm guitar and without. His signature dance moves and swinging hair and that voice blending with the band is a show worth seeing.
Jerry Wu holds up his end with his guitar, his fingers quickly fly over the fret board. He consistently puts all he’s worth into each cord. Rico Esparza keeps the beat tight. Before long, Dave sings the last note, and Jerry and Steve play that last cord and the boom crash of Rico’s drums fade away. The set is complete, and the crown is left wanting more!
