Noise rock alt metal band Helmet was the latest in a long string of big name bands to hit the Sidebar indoor stage. Coming out of a six week hiatus lead singer Page Hamilton said he was happy to play for such a rockin’ crowd.
Local band Sedera opened for them and played a really rocking set. When Helmet came on they reminisced about the show they both did up in Alaska. Then they played songs from their new album “Seeing Eye Dog”, and mixed in some music from their older albums.
Helmet gained fame in the early 90’s with their album Meantime, the title track of which was nominated for a Grammy. They are featured in many soundtracks such as Johnny Mnemonic, Saw III, Beavis and Butt-Head, and Grand Theft Auto.
