Artist: Robbie Simon

Band: Ty Segall

Venue: The Blank Club, San Jose, CA on September 2, 2009

Robbie Simon sits calmly behind his drum kit and then the first reverb-filled chord strikes. Then he hammers like a rhythmic cyclone.

Robbie also has a stylish kit, with a great pinup print on the face of his bass drum.

Frontman Ty, is also a drummer and for the last song of their set, everyone in the band switches roles and he takes the throne.


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
