Soon to be a headliner across the states, the mighty Vorlust crew is playing a rare weeknight show at Café Colonial tomorrow night.
The East Bay act is made up of Marcelle Marais, a.k.a. Cunnus on bass and lead vocals, Sonny Reinhardt on guitar and backing vocals, Dustin Ponko on guitar and Cody Stein on drums. Expect the band to draw heavily from its 2022 offering on Transylvanian Tapes, ‘Lick the Flesh,’ as well as a few surprises only those in attendance will know firsthand.
Fans of Reinhardt’s main band, Necrot – along with early Bulldozer, Venom and Possessed –will dig into standout tracks like “Venomous Scent” and “Tormenta.” This is crusty, blackened metal meant to be chased with shot of whiskey and some stinky weed – and possibly a hallucinogen or two.
For those who’ve never seen Cunnus perform live, prepare for a frontal vocal assault on the eyes and ears amidst a wall of down-tuned guitars.
Rounding out this bill is local headliner Solanum, as well as S.U.R.G.E., and Postnasal Drainage. Tickets can be purchased at the door only for $12. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts promptly at 7:30. This is an all-ages show. The venue has Taco Tuesday for those who get there early, made by a damn fine kitchen. Cafe Colonial is located at 3520 Stockton Blvd.
