Saw this band last night.  The Mars Volta’s ex drummer and drum prodigy in his own right, Thomas Pridgen, linked with his friends from the Bay Area to form THE MEMORIALS.   Assaulted by sound last night, their music was hyper-syncopated, soulful and just rocked out every single face at the sold-out Blakes on Telegraph in Berkeley.  By the way…IT WAS THEIR FIRST SHOW.

Don’ say I didn’t warn you. Their next gig?  The AfroPunk Fest in NYC on June 26th.  Album out in the summer it looks like. ROCK!
