BUT THEY WERE MORE NU-METAL THEN
Just went to see Louis CK Staten Island benefit and Chris Rock was the surprise opening act! Unreal.
Finally saw High On Fire tonight. It was brutal and awesome. That is all.

Penguin Prison wasn't too bad. I liked the tracks and liked his singing on top of several, but it was mostly either stop/start or pre-mixed tunes. I prefer him with live band.
Green Velvet over at Avalon, on the other hand, was fucking fantastic... Probably the best set I've seen from him in the last two years. Dropped some older tunes from Moroder and Anne Clark in his set that just had me dancing all night.
And the contrast between experiences at Avalon and Lure certainly helped my enjoyment (to be fair though: I'm good friends with the women over at Giant, so I recognize that my experience there is not typical... But I am always appreciative of the fact that they generally ensure that I have plenty of space for me to get my dance on... or, at least, that retarded bouncing thing I do that's my best approximation of dancing)
Green velvet and Pleasurekraft killed it at Control on Friday. Always see either one of those acts when they are local. Loved the interlude where Green Velvet used the the PA. Twas craxxing.
Agreed on The Faint praise. The sound was pheomenal and they whipped the crowd into a frenzy, probably the best show i've seen from them since the original DM tour. Only problem i had is that they didn't actually play Danse Macabre from beginning to end. I haven't heard it in a few years, but i'm pretty sure "Take Me To The Hospital" and "Desperate Guys" aren't on that album.
There was a white label 12" with 4 new songs (hand numbered, 1000 copies) for $12 and they have the deluxe 2LP DM reissue for $30. Tshirts were only $15 and $20. Good to see a band as big as they are keeping prices reasonable for fans.
High on Fire for me Wed., at the tiny Jinx in Savannah. Should be awesome.
Anyone know who the secret guest at School Night is tonight?
Theyll email it by 5 or so. They always do
coachella 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (w2), 2013 (w1)
After they've eluded me all these times, I'm finally seeing the Joy Formidable tonight at the Troubadour. I can't wait.
!!!!! Yea I'm glad I already decided on going to weekend 2 next year....
