Then, it came time for the main event of the night. The hometown boys VICTIM took the stage shortly before 11 p.m. and delivered a performance that was musically tight and had the crowd engaged and on its feet from the get-go. The always-charismatic, boundary-pushing Cris Moser was true to form, all the while focused and excited for the band’s big night. Guitarists Eric Budihas and Mike Wambold were very much in sync, while the lively playing of Lee Billy (bass) and new drummer Bill Caufman provided a solid backbone to the performance.
The band’s performance provided unique moments, which included guest vocals from local music supporter/dancing machine Wild Bill, Ashley Romanishan and, at Moser’s behest, as much of the audience as could fit onstage during the encore, “RnR.”
