GYBE were freakin awesome! Admittedly I was not quite prepared for a show that long on a Wed night. I was fading towards the end which was too bad cause they were absolutely outstanding. Thanks again for ticket adgy! Good seeing you and Rick. Hope you guys made it back to DB safe.
They might have been good live. I think. Better than Tool at least. Om was cool, I liked them.
I was told the Fox theater was newly renovated. I like it. The tiered general admission area is very short person friendly.
As for Evangelista, I think she is legend to some but her performance last night didn't do much for me. Not awful just not my thing. And given that she played a long set, I really could've done without her altogether.
I'm glad that I wasn't the only one that was having an issue with it starting later and them playing for 5 ****ing bajillion years (which is still impressive from an endurance standpoint).
No way Ges! I liked Om for a long as it was. GSYBE was too ****ing long. I got bored and was zoning out and everything started to sound the same. I spent most of the time toward the end looking at the projector guy and what he was doing (cause I was right next to the projectors) and looking over the shoulder of the dude at the soundboard going on his facebook and surfing the net. I now know there is a youtube video of some dude who made a playable Angry Birds cake.
I'm glad you guys enjoyed the shows.
Speaking for myself, I can safely say that both shows were fantastic. The setlist for the two nights was very different, which was an extra treat, and the played pretty much all the stuff I wanted to hear. And, yeah, they absolutely should have started earlier. No question.
I hope they record some new material once the tour is over.
I was already a fan of Om, but their set has made me want to go dig out the album I have of theirs and maybe put their other discs on my iPhone to listen to at the gym. If you guys liked them, you might also check out the band metal band Sleep as the bassist and drummer were in that band previously. Very good slow, stoner metal.
EDIT: Just read that the current drummer for Om is no longer the original drummer. My bad.
Also, next time Mono is out here, you guys should totally come with.
you now that it was totally not my scene, and i had zero idea that a genre called Stoner Metal even existed... here i thought ALL metal was pretty much "stoner."
during their set, i thought to myself - this is like a really downtempo Black Sabbath meets a sort of Melvins like thing with a very Bay Area vibe... did i hit close to that? i mean they really reminded me of bands that i would see open for bigger acts when i lived in Seattle in 1992, and just about all those Sub Pop and Sub Pop clone bands at that time were ALL about Sabbath, really... even super acts like Soundgarden.
