Once Again, Daikaiju Set Fire To Three Links Last Night.
Every time mysterious, masked Alabama surf rockers Daikaiju come to town, we like quip in our little preview blurbs about how they’re really going to set the place on fire. But we’re not just being cute, hyperbolic or employing the use of colorful language when they do that.
No, every time these gents come through, they literally set their drum set on fire.
It’s a bit no one really seems to get tired of, and it’s one these “premium action heroes” have kept going for years now. But it’s just one of many bits the manic instrumental rockers employ during their live shows, including mid-set location changes.
Last night’s showing at Three Links, for instance, found the fellas tossing their gear on top of the bar and performing from there at one point.
Along with Three Links regulars like Dwarves, Riverboat Gamblers and Mugen Hoso, Daikaiju has built itself a solid reputation as one of those touring bands you just don’t miss when they come through if you can help it.
And, thankfully, our photographer Karlo X. Ramos never does. Here’s some of his shots from last night’s madness.
