Unless you know the people that are playing, house shows are usually a mixed bag when it comes to seeing good bands. Even if that band would normally put on a good show, they might be too tired from touring or too drunk from free beer to stand straight, let alone play an instrument. I was pleased to find that this show put on by members of pop punk band, The Pillowfights was filled with great bands, including Tenement and their drummer Eric Mayer. Eric is a hard-hitter that plays with great precision.


It is always interesting to see a drummers setup up close
