The Slow Death, Santa Ana Knights, The Waste Aways, Chagrin @ Tower Bar, San Diego

Minnesota’s The Slow Death was certainly slow in returning to the West Coast of the USA. The last time they reached these shores was nearly three years ago. The sometimes rotating line-up for this tour included none other than the Welshman from Pale Angels, Jamie Morrison, who had just completed a tour with Vacation’s Jerri Queen. Rounding out the lineup at San Diego’s dive-bar extraordinaire were Santa Ana Knights, The Waste Aways, and Chagrin, who were playing their first gig in some time.
