Brief Concert Review

I'm sort of an opportunist when it comes to going to shows. Nobody plays in the middle of nowhere besides my rock band on guitar hero and we haven't had a gig since 10th grade and nobody would come to those not even my mom and she was already in the kitchen. So I have either a two or three hour drive to Spokane or Seattle respectively for the rest of Spring to get my fix which means a lot of gas money which means I have to convince or possibly trick someone or two into going with me and splitting gas otherwise I'd go broke. Anyway, here's a few bands I was able to catch this weekend and a rating for them.
1Sleigh Bells
Reign of Terror

Ok so my friend Juice Box Hero convinced me to go see Sleigh Bells with her at The Showbox at the Marktet in
Seattle. I wasn't a huge fan, I thought Treats or Tricks or whatever the fuck that album is called, was fun but sort
of annoying and I don't know it just sounded hollow. But anyway I listened to the Reign of Terror just before this
and it was much better thank goodness. So this show was sold out for weeks and the band that opened left much
to be desired and then they took forever to come on stage and by the time they did the crowd was fucking
ravenous and everything exploded once they started playing "True Shed" Sleigh Bells are loud as fuck and the
crowd ate it up. The pit area was completely bonkers the entire time even for the more dreamy new songs. The
crowd was actually almost perfect, everyone was moving and it was void of assholes as far as I saw. Derek and
Alexis played off the energy Alexis even sometimes dancing and interacting with the people who crowd surfed on
stage, she even claimed it was their "best show ever" which probably isn't true but you still don't hear that very
often. They only played for an hour which was perfect and the encore songs were fantastic. The hipsters got me
this time.
Set List:
True Shred
Born to Lose
End of the Line
Tell Em
Rill Rill
RATING: 9.3/10
2Foxy Shazam
The Flamingo Trigger

Foxy opened for The Darkness. These guys are maniacs. Phenomenal stage presence and energy. They sounded
fucking tight like they are decent musicians too. They did their typical stage shenanigans and closed as the lead
singer-who is a five foot riot-ate three lit cigarettes and the band went carazy. Set the bar high for The Darkness
3The Darkness
Permission to Land

What I like about Seattle is that it's way up in the corner and is often the last place touring bands
stop which means they get to fake sincerity and try to get emotional at the end of the set which is
cool. I haven't even listened to this band in literally years, I went for nostalgia's sake and was hoping
it wouldn't be too cheesy. I didn't see it coming but they absolutely killed it in front of a sold out
Neptune Theater. Once they started with that riff on "Black Shuck" they never let up. I forgot that I
knew every word to this stuff "Get Your Hands Off My Woman Motherfucker", "Love is Only a
Feeling", "Growing On Me" "One Way Ticket", "Friday Night" were all awesome. They played several
songs I had never heard before which were good. They ended with that one song about believing in
love or something and the encore included a jam sesh, Hawkins sitting on a fat dudes shoulders and
walking through the crowd, a crowd shout back thing led by the crazy dude from Foxy Shazam who
then jumped into the crowd and then "Love on the Rocks With No Ice" which absolutely ruled. Justin
changed outfits several times, he's pretty unattractive which was unsettling but he sort of grows on
you after a couple hours. Justin hit all those high notes, I didn't realize he was such a good frontman.
Can't believe I got to see these guys it meant a lot to the 8th grade me. RATING: 9.6/10
