    Fri 5 Oct – Finntroll with Blood of Cain

    There were four opening bands scheduled for tonight's Finntroll show at the Key Club in Hollywood, none of which I had heard of before, so it was going to be interesting to see if any of them were any good. There was also concern that with so many bands playing before them, the headliners who I really wanted to see might have had a disappointingly short set.

    However, after Blood of Cain, a band from Chino, CA, started their set at 8:30 (a half hour later than the scheduled start time for the night's entertainment), they informed the crowd that the band that was supposed to play before them couldn't make it, saying something about them getting stuck in Disneyland traffic, so they got to play an extra song, or two, or...they had "one more" song to play three times. They weren't too bad, and had lots of energy and showed some talent, so I didn't mind much that they got some extra time.
