This past Sunday we made it to San Francisco and no, not for the World Series, for something much more energetic and climatic! We were at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco for the Cyanotic and The Rabid Whole TERMINATOUR. It was definitely the right place to be as these bands were over the top with energy and delivered sets that would rival our concert coverage of 2014! We will be bringing you coverage of Cyanotic later but for now, let me tell you how The Rabid Whole completely blew us away with their set.

The Above DNA Lounge has quite an intimate setting but when you get an energetic band on that small stage, the room can’t contain the adrenaline running through everyone’s veins. That is exactly what The Rabid Whole did. They came out and gave 150% of themselves on that stage, it was as if they were playing for a crowd of 10,000! I love a band that comes out and delivers their all every single time and that is what The Rabid Whole does. Their music can be described as a blend of electronic infused alternative rock but even die hard rockers or metalheads will fall fast in love with them. If you ever had a doubt about where music is headed, no need to worry The Rabid Whole is the answer that we have been searching for. We had a chance to interview them after their set and will be bringing the interview to you later this week.

Each member has excellent stage presence and are outstanding at captivating the audience. Vocalist Andreas is fierce when he sings and he gets the crowd amped up from start to finish. Chalsey is not only a bad ass keyboardist but her vocals draw you right in and have you hooked. George is kicking out some cool riffs and Matt on drums consistently rocked the beat as he gave a show with his sticks flying in the air. Then we have to tell you about Oscar, the madman on bass. He is like a caged animal on that stage, ready to pounce and he literally gives every ounce of his energy to the crowd. Amazing band that bring depths and tones to their music and completely rocks! Rock ain’t dead, The Rabid Whole have just revived it and added a couple electronic cyborg parts to it and are ready to take over! Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:
