Last fall, Papa Roach, a standout name on a short list of recent Northern California success stories, released their latest studio album, the highly anticipated Lovehatetragedy. Preparing for a long year of live commitments, both in the U.S. and abroad, the band played a number of one-off performances in select cities. Just hours from their hometown of Vacaville, Calif., the band booked an evening at San Francisco's Warfield Theater, where they played a number of their radio hits and showcased some fresh cuts to an eager and receptive audience.

FOH engineer Brendon Brown (unavailable to be photographed) mixes from a Midas XL4. He keeps a number of the more dynamic elements under control with a complement of Drawmer gates and dbx 160 compressors. For delays, he employs several TC Electronic 2290s and D-TWOs. Multi-effect and reverb programs are accessed through a Yamaha SPX-990 and a Lexicon PCM 70, respectively. An Eventide H3000 is used for doubling, when needed.

Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix (right) uses a Shure SM58. The drum kit is miked with a Shure SM91 and Beta 52 on kick, SM57 on snare top and Beta 57 on bottom, SM81 on hi-hat, SM98s on rack and floor toms, and KSM 32s on ride cymbals and overheads. A Beta 52 on bass and a complement of Countryman DIs round out the stage inputs.

The entire tour was outfitted by Clair Bros., which provided all of the FOH, monitor and P.A. equipment.
