The Cranberries are a Irish band that gained international fame with their debut album. They were one of the most successful rock bands of the 90’s and sold over 40 million albums. After taking 6 years off the band started touring in 2010.
The song Zombie was a protest of the I.R.A. bombing in Warrington that killed two boys and injured dozens.
Hole started out in the Los Angeles indie rock scene. When the band first formed they used Flea, of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, practice space to start writing songs.Read More
~March 2nd 2012.
It was a show at Audie's Olympic with classic local Fresno bands Style Like Revelators, Strange Vine, and newly formed, Light Thieves. At the time I had thought "Hey, there's this band from some of the Fierce Creatures dudes." As it turned out, they immediately became some of my most infatuated favorite musicians of all time. That sounds like hyperbole, but I do mean that on a personal level.
I had no choice but to follow and shoot video of them ever since. Like a drug addicted puppy I would see them in and out of town needing my fix. These musicians have become something dear to me over time. Sometimes I wonder if I like their music so much because of a bias of becoming friends with them. This thought is quickly disbanded as I share and talk about their first LP "Spirit Homes" to my peers and find many mutual feelings. There is enough acquired footage to edit a mini documentary. But for now, it will be used to hopefully help promote the first upcoming tour.
~Oct. 3 2013.
Starting today, the band will embark on their first ever tour as Light Thieves. Scaling from the top to the bottom of their home state, California. Finishing back where they started in Fresno, by the 13th, before home sickness gets the best of them. Still, it's a big first tour step and I wish them all the best. Also, I wish all the best band drink tickets and hot groupie action they can get.
Sometimes in life it's hard to find something to really believe in. Since that first show last year, I've believed in Light Thieves.
Good luck and God speed.
(Editors note: please watch the video in HD, too much time and money has been spent on software and gear to see this in shitty 360p. Thanks!)

Soundgarden was one of the key bands in the grunge genre. They were the first grunge band to be signed to a major record label. Superunknown debuted at number one on the billboard charts.
Grunge was a genre that came out of Seattle Washington. It was known for heavily distorted electric guitars, contrasting dynamics, and angst filled lyrics. When I think of grunge I remember flannel shirts, dirty torn jeans, and messy hair. The movement consisted of many bands but there was only a handful of them that made it into the mainstream.
