Concert Review – Amerakin Overdose – Roseland Theatre


A few months back, I had the opportunity to take on equipment engineering duties for a local Portland, OR metal band, Amerakin Overdose (AOD). They are a well established act who has been prominent in the local scene since 2009. For their most recent show, the band opened up for Coal Chamber, Combichrist, Filter, and American Head Charge at the Roseland Theater here in Portland which was organized by Mike Thrasher.   AOD’s show set started promptly at 6:45 and the house was just about packed full, the energy was intense. This was the band’s first time playing live at the Roseland Theater, and judging by the crowd support, it definitely won’t be their last. Dimes Musical Photography provided the picture taking skills, make sure you check them out here.
