I arrived at the venue a little before doors and texted Sammy Duet to see about the location of our interview. We settled on a spot out by their van. (Be sure and watch the interview below.) Sammy was feeling a little down because of the death of long-time metal icon, Trevor Stnard of Black Dahlia Murder, but the interview went well nonetheless, and I headed to the venue.
The venue, Goldfield Trading Post in Roseville, is a post-pandemic addition to the Sacramento music scene, which was purchased by the former owners of the Holy Diver to bring in acts who otherwise might not fill a larger venue. It has a bar, is clean, and the stage lights and sound system did not disappoint. Goldfield also has a large upstairs area, which was closed off for this show, that also serves food when there are bigger crowds. There’s also a convenient patio for smokers and a good place to plant your butt if you need a spot to sit for a while.
