Last Friday, we trekked out to Petaluma and the historical venue of The Phoenix for a night of live music and great bands. I wish more people would make an effort to get out to live shows. The Phoenix has always been a crap shoot and you never know what type of crowd you will get. It might have been a light crowd, but Approaching Fiction delivered a set as if they were playing to a sold out arena.

Approaching Fiction are from San Diego were making a stop in Petaluma for their Outbreak Tour. They bring a fierce dose of hard rock with metal edge. Their guitar heavy songs energize amid some fluid basslines, we were even treated to a bad ass bass solo. The precision drumming brings it all together with the powerful vocals igniting your senses. This was the first time I had seen Approaching Fiction but definitely not the last!

Check out photos by our Rockin Ryan of their set:

We picked up their CD Theleventhour which is also available on iTunes here. Check out their video for their song Outbreak which is off Theleventhour.

  • Chase Manary – Vocals
