Day 2 started earlier than my first day at Sacramento’s Aftershock Festival, on account of some well-known NorCal bands playing on the Coors Light sponsored stage around noon. FallRise and Burn Halo were my must see acts for the morning.
I was just in time to catch Fallrise perform my favorite song, “Life of Fools”, a frequent on Sacramento radio station 98ROCK. The vocalist of Fallrise, Sammy Karlin, was an animal on the microphone, like always, ripping through guttural vocals and transferring seamlessly into a smooth rock voice to hit the top notes of the final chorus. They were very “clean-dirty” sounding. I cheered with the sizeable crowd, proud and excited of the incredible talent that Sacramento produced.
