Groundbreaking drummer Dave Lombardo, whose legendary performances with Slayer and Fantomas have influenced entire music genres and generations of musicians, will be performing an intimate show with his heavy power trio Philm, presented by Club My War and held at the Relax Bar (5511 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles) this Sat., Feb. 6, 2010. The band's set time is scheduled for 11:30 p.m.
Lombardo has a long history with Southern California-based Slayer, the pioneering thrash metal foursome of which he's still a member after joining over a quarter-century ago. Lombardo's signature stickwork can also be found backing experimental metal act Fantomas, a super-group featuring vocalist Mike Patton of Faith No More fame and Melvins guitarist King Buzzo.
Though he is an integral part of a major-label metal band, Lombardo's independent, do-it-yourself ethic is still firmly intact. In fact, such a philosophy can be found in Philm and the band has selected the Relax Bar as the appropriate location to stimulate organic growth. The members of Philm are fond of the idea that notable underground metal artists-including Municipal Waste, Wolves in the Throne Room and Torche-have performed at this respected venue. Club My War is the promoter responsible for the first domestic Shrinebuilder show and had brought Municipal Waste to the Relax Bar two years ago.
This Club My War-presented event is a special opportunity to witness the drumming prowess and power of Dave Lombardo in the most intimate of settings, a club that holds no more than 100 people. True fans are urged to experience this masterful performance, as Lombardo's next stage appearance behind the kit may not be housed in such close quarters.
