March 13 2020, Callahan’s Irish Pub, Azusa CA: As they say, the show must go on, and last Friday, it sure did, as LA acid doom unit Old Blood and Orange CA rock ‘n roll / classic heavy metal group Tyranis joined forces to rock a tiny dive bar in the San Gabriel Valley.  This year’s Friday The 13th festivities saw spellbinding performances by Old Blood and Tyranis, and our photographer Haley Caroline was on site to capture some stills in an attempt to provide you a visual recap of the event (please keep in mind that she did so in a very dark room, with no stage lighting). Check out the images below, and be sure to keep tabs on both bands’ activities for much more very soon. Continue reading “Photo Gallery: Friday The 13th feat. Old Blood & Tyranis”
