Shows, papers, books, maps, movies...anyways, been hella busy the past two weeks. So
umm...list of bands that have kept me busy over the past two weeks...some good...some not so
|1||Arsonists Get All The Girls|
I am disappoint. Last time I caught them was before they lost half of their members and they put on such
an entertaining show. Now...let's just say there's lots of rainbow tanktops, running in place, and crappy
attitudes about the fact that you played to less than 50 kids.
|2||It Dies Today|
Played with AGATG, were much more entertaining, guitarist almost punched annoying hipster
douchebag...fun times. Can't stand their music but they're nice guys.
Second time this year. Good guys, decent enough show. Got a bit irritating since the mics kept cutting
out but eh.
Better show than I expected, British accents are pretty fantastic.
|5||Bring Me The Horizon|
If I was 13 again, they would have ruled. I hate everything they choose to be, but they know how to
work a crowd. One of my friends got his nose broke by some douchebag with a fringe haircut who thought
it was funny to stage dive with his elbows down. He ended up getting what he deserved in the end
|6||Every Time I Die|
First actual good band. Three songs off Hot Damn!, three songs off Gutter Phenomenon, three songs off
Big Dirty, three songs off New Junk Aesthetic. Could have used at least one thing off of Last Night In
Town, but still, awesome set.
Decent. Basically just stood still and stared at their instruments.
|8||3 Inches of Blood|
Kind of ruled, seriously. That's all I have to say.
|9||Between the Buried and Me|
I keep hearing that they've only been playing 3 songs on the tour but they played an hour long set (might
have something to do with the fact that it was Dan's birthday yesterday, but if they've been playing hour
sets all tour I've been lied to). All Bodies, Selkies, Obfuscation, Decade of Statues A and B, White Walls.
Would have preferred something off Silent Circus and maybe Primer instead of DoS but it still ruled. Much
more energetic than Colors_Live for the most part (Dusty is still the equivalent of having a fern onstage).
Put on a pretty awesome show. Played 0 songs from their new album, and barely anything after 2002.
Opened with Cloud Connected, played a bunch off Clayman, I think one or two songs from
Whoracle/Colony, and a song from Lunar Strain. The rest were songs I didn't recognize since I'm not really
a HUGE fan. Still, they've been together about as long as I've been alive, so mad props.
|wherever you are that you get all these shows|
i need to be there
|Hour from New Orleans bro...jump on it.|
lol@7, what did you expect?
|What happened to the said guy in 5 haha?|
|Yeah... for #7, for them to play with that much technicality it would be impossible for them to do much else.|
That sucks 'bout AGATG. They were great when I saw them a couple years ago. It was in Santa Cruz, though, so it might have just been the whole local crowd aspect (it was sold-out).
And Waior... try L.A. lol. Pretty difficult for bands to skip there.
|that's what I was thinking BBQ, they don't have easy songs. That shit is crazy.|
|BTBAM is ridiculously technical and they at least engaged the crowd and rocked out/had a good time. The Faceless just looked bored.|
