Set-lists document Oakland huffers High on Fire crisping zero stages between Dec. 9, 2019, and June 18, 2021. Said gap year-and-a-half ceased the afternoon after that latter date at Del Valle’s Motocross Park, where metal pyrotechnics from Matt Pike’s triumvirate qualified as a pandemically induced live music relief moment. They then teamed with Pissed Jeans during SXSW at Hotel Vegas. Further sonic aid triages the Lost Well when the gasoline-gargling ax maniac fires up solo debut Matt Pike v. the Automaton.
