I stumbled across these photos of Von Iva playing a show we booked for them at Gilman in 2007, and it was a reminder that as much as some folks would try to pigeon hole us as grind bookers or doom metal bookers, and maybe most ridiculous of all - 'tough guy hardcore' bookers, UGZ was always about bringing diversity to Gilman's event calendar, and the same went for any other club that allowed us to set up shop for an extended period of time.  

By the way, Von Iva played to a packed house that night, and stole the show!

Today's 'Throwback Thursday' post is a video of BABYLAND at Gilman.  We booked a handfull of Babyland shows between 2006 and 2010, so I was stoked to come across this video of a Babyland set from 2008 courtesy of Kill That Cat.

Here’s a Throwback Thursday photo for you.  It’s Attitude Adjustment playing Fresno in 1988, and in the audience right in front of the stage is Yapple Ruelas (Deathtoll, A.D.T.), who eventually joined Attitude Adjustment 18 years later.  In addition to playing guitar, Yapple is a fisherman, and everyone knows that fishing takes patience.
