Friday night we headed out to The Boardwalk in Orangevale to catch Powerman5000 and it was a damn good night for music! They had some great opening bands and a killer set by 9Electric. One thing is for sure Powerman5000 = ENERGY. These five guys come out on stage and just bleed energy and feed the crowd with their electronic metal rock. Even with the soundstage technical difficulties they had to deal with, didn’t break this band from delivering an adrenaline filled set. Check out this tribute video that Rockin Ryan made which includes live footage of their set:

In addition to playing fan favorites, they treated us to several of their new songs and really got everyone pumped for the release of their new album, Builders of the Future which is out later this week on May 27th. Check out Rockin Ryan’s photos from their set here:

The crowd went wild for their new track, How To Be  A Human as well as their new song, Invade.Destroy. Repeat. It was great to see the crowd so fueled and fired up. They did away with the typical boring walk off for the encore and instead, came at us heavy with a couple more songs! It was awesome. The night ended with everyone pumped up and singing along to  When Worlds Collide. The set list for the night was:

  • Invade. Destroy. Repeat
  • Supervillain
  • Nobody’s Real
  • Hey, That’s right
  • How To Be A Human
  • You’re Gonna Love It
  • Show Me What You Got
  • We Want It All
  • City of The Dead
  • Horror Show
  • Bombshell
  • Supernova Goes Pop
  • Stars Revolt
  • When Worlds Collide


If you happen to be in the Southern California area, make sure to head over to the Viper Room for their Album Release Show on May 27th.  You can get more details and tickets here: http://bit.ly/PM5K_AlbumReleaseShow


In addition to their album release show, you can catch them as they are currently out on tour. They have also just announced a Fall tour with (hed) P.E. and Sunflower Dead both whom we just caught at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco for the Born To Ride 2 Tour.  Head over to their Facebook Page for the complete list of upcoming show dates and get yourself to a show. I promise you will witness one of the best live perfomances out in the industry today!

So make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news. Also mark your calendars for May 27th and pick up Builders of the Future. I will leave you with several videos from their set at The Boardwalk
