|The Dear Hunter / Dredg Tonight|
Saw Dredg and The Dear Hunter tonight in Dallas, and it was awesome.
Neither of the opening bands were good at all, though.
|1||The Dear Hunter|
Act 1:The Lake South, The River North
The Dear Hunter was amazing, but their set needed to be twice as long. Played
a few songs from the EPs, and This Body translated really, really well live. Can't
wait to see these guys again soon. Casey is a monster, and it blows my mind
how much control he gained over his voice since The Receiving End of Sirens.
Their lineup has changed since last time I saw them, but everyone played well.
The stage was definitely optimized for Dredg, though, because everything from
The Dear Hunter sounded too loud and too muffled. Killer set either way.
Catch Without Arms
Dredg sounded amazing, and the drummer is absolutely insane. They played too
much from the new album though, which really nerfed their set. It really could
have been a better show without any of that, but his vocals sound just like on
recording and everything was really tight.
|Balance and Composure was just awful, as if Hawthorne Heights and Brand New had a child that was supposed to be Nirvana but instead had Down's Syndrome. The Trophy Fire was nothing special either, but they were a lot better than Balance and Composure.|
|it's like a really bad dream that i can't wake up from|
i just can't accept that it exists
|balance and composure are awesome they were just hilariously out of place on this tour|
|Really? I just don't understand them I guess. The lead singer reminded me of Sid from Toy Story and I kept asking myself why they needed three guitarists.|
