San Jose hardcore band Dolores performing at the Back Bar in San Jose on the first Spring Edition of the SoFA Street Fair on Sunday April 24 in downtown San Jose. The music festival took place on South First Street in downtown featuring Fifteen stages, over eighty bands, live wrestling, food trucks, craft beer, and one hell of a good time. Whatever your music taste there was something for everyone with music running from 2pm – 9pm and completely free.

The San Jose four piece left nothing on the table, ripping through a fun 30 minute set of pure hardcore/metal fury – San Jose style.  Their unique blend of all things heavy could be attributed to local scene veterans Joey Ruiz (Insolence) on guitar, & Aaron Liebeit (Sinister Sam, Chug, Disorderly Conduct, Floppy Rods, 880 South) on drums, along with Alonso Hernandez on bass (Insolence, the Pounders). Front man Angel Lopez,  a dead ringer (in a good way) for Sho’nuff -the Shogun of Harlem, from Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon, was a maniac, stalking the stage while spitting out guttural death growls & the occasional pig squeal. Dolores has 2 songs available for free download on bandcamp.
