All good things must come to pass, so the next and last KAOS Show will be held on Friday, January 18th 2013 at the world famous Slim’s in San Francisco, CA.With our good friends Potential Threat, Mystic Rage and opening the show Star Destroyer.
It has been an awesome ride spanning 25 years, playing with tons of kool bands, meeting a lot of great people, seeing the world, and TONS of support from family, friends, and all the rest. But now it is time to take a step back and let KAOS be…for no other reason except, it just feels right.
We cannot thank you all enough for the years of support and long hours of work, sacrifice, endless time and efforts that have been given to the KAOS engine.
