Airiel Down ascended on Walnut Creek like a horde of crazed rock stars leaving a deep impression on the crowd as well as the stage itself. I was glad to see them win the contest to open for KISS as I knew they would not disappoint. Their time on stage was Rock-N-Roll personified and I am sure they walked away with newly won fans. They opened the show with Black Flag which set the tempo. Quick, Hurricane Warning, and Gorilla from the second album Shine were also showcased. I have to apologize for not having any of my own images as Livenation would not allow me to photograph the show. So I have to give thanks to Tim Szczesniak of Fade To Black Photography as these excellent images are courtesy of him, thanks Tim.
