Beginning in the mid 1980’s with their highly thought-of masterpiece “Doomsday for the Deceiver” Flotsam and Jetsam have been playing the drums to their own beat, and have never looked back. Signed with Metal Blade Records and on tour now in support of both their 2013 release “Ugly Noise” and the 2014 re-release of the 1988 classic “No Place for Disgrace“, the band rocked the Tonic Lounge in Portland, Oregon for 15 smoking tunes from their all-impressive and massive catalog. One of the highlights was the fact that Flotsam and Jetsam had no set list. Each tune seemed chosen depending on the mood of the band at the moment, or based on requests from the crowd. Quote of the night came from front-man Eric A.K. “Every time I’m in Oregon I smoke way to much weed, which I already did today”. The show was amazing and listed below is the spontaneous, thrashing, 15-tune set list. So grab some flame, kick back, and enjoy a few pictures as well.
Flotsam and Jetsam: Kelly D. Smith (drums), Eric A.K. (vocals), Michael Gilbert (guitar), Michael Spencer (bass), Steve Conley (guitar)
