Guitar Wolf at The Satellite

Last week I saw Guitar Wolf.  It was one of the loudest concerts I've ever been to.  They played at the Satellite in Silver Lake, which provided the right atmosphere for this band from Japan.

I've been loosely following Guitar Wolf ever since their cameo in a Teen Titans music video.  Later on, I saw their zombie movie Wild Zero (which is terrific, by the way).  I was very pleased to find out they would be coming to town.

The show was the first time I had been in a mosh pit in years.  Big guys running in circles, smashing into each other and spilling beer on each other.

During their first of three encores, Guitar Wolf performed while crowd surfing.  It was the first time I've seen someone stay vertical while in the crowd like that.  During their second encore, Guitar Wolf pulled out a few fans and formed a pyramid.  After the first attempt fell apart, Guitar Wolf performed from the top of the pyramid.

My ears were ringing for a couple of hours after the show.  A fantastic time was had!  Thanks to Grimy Goods for providing the tickets.
