Kaleido performs December 6, 2021 at August Hall in San Francisco, California

When Sebastian Bach calls you pick up the phone. When he offers you the opening slot on his tour celebrating 30 years of Skid Row’s classic Slave to the Grind you don’t hesitate to say “hell yes.” With some attention around their latest single (appropriately named “Panic In a Pandemic”) and a little bit of luck, that’s exactly what happened for Kaleido.

Hailing from Detroit (“Rock City”) Kaleido has been on the road with Bach since the beginning of October and hit San Francisco’s August Hall as the tour came down to the home stretch. While Bach’s ticket sales in San Francisco weren’t terribly impressive, Kaleido was visibly pumped when they took the stage promptly at 7:30 pm.

While it didn’t appear that anyone in the room was familiar with the Kaleido material, the band quickly commanded their attention with a 45 minute ripper of a set that ended with the aforementioned “Panic In a Pandemic” and a healthy round of applause from the San Francisco crowd. That’s how you warm up a room!
