OMG SAME HERE!!!! Do they have any more material since their ep came out? just 5 songs?

I don't think so. I'm sure they'll have more material to play live though.
By the way, I have two extra tickets I'm willing to sell at face value. PM me if interested.

It's been mentioned here that the Holloys are one of the opening bands for both gigs, so I just checked their myspace and the're indicating an additional two shows:

just going to post some quick pictures as i need to shower now!!

didn't get wristbands until about 330 and had to stand in the hot ass sun for that extra hour. got our wristbands and was then sent to aladdin's jr on the corner where the show was being held in some side room. it was hotter in this room than it was outside which had everyone just drenched in sweat. no vato negro but the holloys did open up and they said something to the tune of we will be opening all 3 shows for the One Day As A Lion which leaves me hungry for that third show. sign inside that room said max capacity 80 and it looked like 80 would be pushing it. they had a great set, i liked it best when zach would get back behind the keys as being in the front made the vocals just get lost in the mix they played about 10 songs. sick set, i am sure more pics will pop up but just to give you an idea of how tiny this place was here on some taken on my iphone. mind you i was front and center.

you mean the shade? very fortunate to have the building blocking the sun while waiting.

good show, but if i had known that odaal wasn't coming on until 5:30 i would have spent a little more time in newport enjoying the beautiful day instead of "chilling" in 106 degree pomona.

his comment about everyone watching the show through their tiny "tv" screens was pretty funny, especially when he said something to the effect of "just so you all remember, this is fuckin' live right now!"

actually thought about calling my friend to see if i could get on the list for the thrice show at the fox before leaving, but i had had enough of the heat and standing around for one day.

brownbuffalo
07-17-2010, 07:31 PM
uh yeah, shade or no shade being outside in 100 degrees is not fun at all

Jon Theodore is a beast on drums! I liked the energy the band brought today. Zack still has explosive energy on stage but just doesn't hop around as much. Amazing debut for ODAAL none the less and looking forward on checking them out again sometime very soon!

I'm glad Zack mentioned something about the lack of A/C, WTF were they thinking not turning it on??

JustSteve
07-17-2010, 08:16 PM
even if it was on it wouldn't have made any difference with all those bodies in there.

and i'm guessing his hopping around may have been limited by the size of the stage and the equipment on it.

For those going to tomorrow's show and it ends up being at the eagle rock center for the arts, the best spots will be at the column locations. There are floor vents at each column blowing cool A/C air upwards. Learned this from that Deerhunter show last year (a hot August night)...

$10 for the vinyl with free mp3 download (i kinda regret not getting the vinyl but i need RATM money)

$20 for a shirt


Basically once i saw the line wasn't moving.We got some info from a roadie who said the show wasn't going to start til later.So we just went into Antonino which had warm beer but we got a free pitcher and pizza with our order of one pitcher that made up for it.Plus we got to be in an a/c room til they started giving out wristbands.Cool show expect i was pissed off because i could barely hear what Zack was saying unless he was on the back mic when he was playing keyboard.

by the way tomorrows show's at a church.

Cool. Also, for those that went yesterday, were the people running the show/security checking people thoroughly? Were they not letting people bring cameras and shit? Im debating if I should bring my mini camcorder to bootleg this shit.

the show was in a side room of a restaurant and they didn't check shit. just looked for your wristband. that restaurant scored yesterday, no way they are ever that busy i'm guessing. a beer was nice in the sweltering heat.

I think he meant One Day As A Lion into Tool (as in he's going to both shows?). I hope that's what he meant at least.

He definitely meant that as a "forward" sign and not a "better than" sign. He's going to both shows., therefore having a "good day."

Here a video I shot of "Wild International", I was at the back of the room near the door entry. Have a great time if your going to tonight's show, I'm checking out Tool instead for the next two days!! ODAAL would be such a great add to rock the bells this year, I'm hoping that they get added later on...

Thanks! It was soo hot in that brick-oven oven of a space yesterday that I decided to enjoy the show from the back near a breeze source (the door). I was only around twenty-five feet back but probably had better sound than being up at the very front where it was hotter in temperature. Have a great show tonight!

Joey Karam (the Locust) performs with them on keys. He was on the far right of the stage yesterday. Not much lighting was on him during the show so he was hard to see.
