Casey Deitz In A Trance

Casey Deitz In A Trance

By Leslie Hampton Published September 9, 2009

Band: The Velvet Teen

Venue: Aug. 28th at Thee Parkside, San Francisco, CA

Casey Deitz goes into a rhythmic trance, playing with his eyes closed almost the entire set. He's not shutting the camera flash out; he just focused on being a cyclone of percussive energy. This was the Velvet Teen's second show after a one-year hiatus. I hope to see more.
