Victims Family: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 28 2011

More than 25 years after forming in Santa Rosa, moving to San Francisco, swapping out multiple drummers, breaking up, reuniting, vanishing, and then re-emerging — all while playing in various other local bands — the core members of Victims Family are back again, with their ferocity intact.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
