Saw Protest The Hero Last Night

List is experience

Architects opened, ah yesh. Unfortunately they played stuff exclusively off of their latest two albums except for follow the water and early grave. Every member had so much energy and they had great stage presence at least.
2Protest The Hero

They played a bit of an unexpected set but a good one none the less. They had some oddball songs thrown in.
3Protest The Hero

With both a different drummer playing and a fill in guitarist it is hardly like even seeing the same band! Whether that is a good or bad thing is debatable.

Protest The Hero is pretty awful live [2]. Except that I like their songs so it makes it still worth going to. Rody is their only saving grace live as he really adds a lot of personality and character to the band.
5Protest The Hero

Their fill in guitarist stood completely still the whole time and always had a look on his face of pure "I just shit myself". While the lead guitarist stood perfectly still and watched his guitar the entire show.
6Protest The Hero

PTH played a nice mix of new and old songs which was nice to see because I expected them to honestly play like 90% volition.
7Protest The Hero

The mixing in general was god awful. Like holy balls, it was bad. Architects especially. You couldn't even hear the vocals barely and all the instruments sounded like a muddied mess. I have over 150 plays on early grave on my ipod and yet I didn't even recognize the song until halfway through.
Hollow Crown

PTH also had mixing issues but not nearly as bad as everyone else. I think it may have been the venue's fault idk. You couldn't hear the lead guitar very well, nor the vocals. The rhythm guitar and drums were pretty much the main focus of the sound.
Hollow Crown

Protest The Hero is very accurate live but there is of course a tradeoff between accuracy and performance.
The Here and Now

Architects setlist from what I can remember (not in order): day in day out, daybreaker, follow the water, early grave, alpha omega, these colours don't run, even if you win you're still a rat, devil's island

Protest The Hero setlist (not in order): underbite, tapestry, hair trigger, tilting against the windmills, clarity, sequoia throne, bloodmeat, the dissidence, mist, no stars over bethlehem, nautical, blindfolds aside, sex tapes, c'est le vie
