Coming frm a Mars Volta fan, it was an extremely underwhelming set. I wasn't even expecting Cedric to be there so that was a pleasant surprise until they started playing... That being said, i hope they tear us all a new one and prove us wrong
A lot of Omar's solo stuff live is fairly underwhelming, unless he's having a good day or you brace yourself. I have followed him to many concerts and felt the same, with the very huge exception of The Mars Volta pre-Amputechture. I think it's awesome he's back playing bass with a punk rock band, can't wait to see that.
