Saturday Night with Boxcar Satan

Took a break from deadlines late last night. Went with pals Scott A. Cupp and Sean Lackey to check out Boxcar Satan, one of San Antonio's finest bands. They're releasing a brand-new CD this fall, but nothing matches seeing them live. The band is Sanford Allen (lead guitar and lead vocals); Patrick Sane (bass guitar); and Aaron Seibert (drums). Some of the photos may appear to have too much red-eye, but I tend to believe the camera unveils the truth. Enjoy photos of a Texas rock band possessed.

HELL ON SIX STRINGS: Sanford Allen blistering through the night's opening number

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SETS: 15 years ago, young Sanford Allen made a deal with the devil, and the rest, as they say, is history.

THE REAL THING: Patrick Sane shows all hair-metal bass guitar hacks how to really play

EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING: (left) the headless Aaron Seibert on drums, with Patrick on bass (right)....best captures the band's kinetic energy better than standard photography ever could...I don't think any photo could ever communicate how good a drummer Aaron Seibert really is.

INFINITE: All great bands seem to be a conduit of something greater than the sum of their parts....hard to know whether Boxcar Satan is a conduit from heaven or from hell, but they're awesome and one-of-a-kind!

Wanna hear some of their tunes? Make sure to check out one of my favorites, "Shoot Down the Sun." And of course, you can browse and buy over at Itunes, CDBaby, and all finer music vendors.

As John indicates this was one great show. BOXCAR is about to go out on the road, so if they come to your area you need to go.
