Going to watch Chris Thompson tonight! It's an annual event in my city, and like every year I'm really looking forward to it. Been humming on 'Mighty Quinn' all day lol...

Wait, THE Mighty Quinn?

 

Edit: cool, never heard of Chris Thompson by name, but I definitely know Manfred Mann!

^Yup! The concert was, as always, bloody fantastic! Mighty Quinn raised the roof, as did all the other classics such as Blinded by the Light, Davy's on the road again, etc... Being in a small venue with a low roof and FANTASTIC sound quality really makes it one hell of an experience!

Went to Parkway Drive show in Louisville Thursday it was awesome as usual.

 

Last night was Ghost in cincy and it was absolutely amazing. 24 song set took around 2 hours and 15 minutes. Pretty much everything I wanted to see was played. The new production and songs were great. I can’t wait to see them again.

A few weeks ago I saw Turnstile, Touché Amore, Culture Abuse, and Razorbumps at the TLA. It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. Turnstile played with tons of energy and the crowd was awesome. People were stage diving over the barrier. The lineup of bands had a ton of variety. Razorbumps is a garage punk-style band, Culture Abuse is pop punk, Touché Amore is a very emotional post hardcore band, and Turnstile is like an insane combination of Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, and Bad Brains fused with modern hardcore and pop.

 

The next day I saw Power Trip with Sheer Mag, Fury, and Red Death at Union Transfer. Power Trip was excellent and anyone who likes crossover thrash should listen to them. Sheer Mag is basically a classic rock band in modern times. They were great, and a really fun band to see live. Fury is an awesome hardcore punk band that’s been getting some hype over the past year, and Red Death is also a crossover thrash type band.

 

This June I’m seeing Parquet Courts, (which I can’t wait for since their new album is awesome), then King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard soon after that (which is one of the absolute GREATEST live bands around).

It's coming up on Electric Forest time, and I can't go this year, so I went to the first night of Spring Awakening in Chicago. I don't go out of my way to listen to EDM, but it was a nice little fest, and a good time.

Ahhh, I wish, haha. I thought my last weekend was packed, but that is an impressive itinerary. Looks like a blast- hope you have fun.

Devastation on the Nation over near Albany last Friday. It was definitely worth the long drive that was made while I was quite sick.

 

Signs of the Swarm: Well, they kept Dave Simonich and made him full-time, so that's a plus right there. They were also even tighter this time around and started things off with a good, solid, heavy set. One of a VERY small handful of deathcore acts that I enjoy.

Venom Prison: Surprise of the night. They were a decent blend of old and new styles, and Larissa's stage presence and vocal performance were particularly on point. "Frenzied" would be a good way to describe it.

Arkaik: Got a soft spot because they're my buddies (and also because I brought them food), but they always put on a great show and the new lineup (well, new-ish, since Nate and Cris were in the last time I saw them) was on point.

Disentomb: Nothing special to report, just a good, tight, energetic set with a particularly great performance from Jordan (and some hilarious stage banter made even better by his thick "fukken Straya m8" accent).

Ingested: Band of the night. I've seen them three times with three different vocalists, and I gotta say, Jason Keyser was the best out of the three. Dude's one of the best frontmen around and he really added something extra to their set. Their sound DID wash out for about twenty seconds and I'm quite willing to blame it on all those bass drops overwhelming the house sound setup.

Psycroptic: Sat out a good deal of their set because I'm really not a fan of anything after Symbols of Failure, but I did catch The Colour of Sleep because I do have a deep love for old Psycroptic, and the Haley brothers are always worth watching because I really can't think of many musicians who are tighter than those two.

Aborted: What can I say? They always bring it. They'd be worth watching just for Ken's inhuman drumming, but they're also one of the tightest and most fun live acts around in general.

I saw Prophets of Rage play at Gröna Lund on the 26th. I had no idea they were playing at the park that day, so seeing Tom Morello shred live was a huge surprise to end my coaster trip! Moshing to Killing in the Name is for sure a highlight of my life.

Fantastic set last night from Das Ich. . including a wonderful political speech from Bruno during the show (seriously, taking about how scary things are and that they are reminding him of the way things used to be in Germany, and how the Goth/Industrial community needs to fight back and embrace the differences). . it was really good!

 

I'll post some pics from the set (only Texas date on the tour), when I get them uploaded later.

 

but meanwhile .. me and Bruno after the show

 

Edit to add a few photos from last night's show

Michael had pre-purchased tickets months ago to see Beck at the Albright Knox art museum in Buffalo. Given that it was a sold out show and I found out that he paid an excruciatingly high price (found on his credit card statement after he passed), I knew that he would have still wanted me to go.

 

So my friend Tim drove us out there on Monday night and despite the fact that we had a one hour rain/storm delay, the show went on and it was awesome!

 

Even though Beck has been around forever, he brought his A-game and provided a really wonderful, high energy show! Highly recommend checking him out if you get the chance.

When Beck came out and did his encore, tears were rolling down my face because I wanted Michael with me there so badly. People probably thought that I was crazy, but I didn't care at the time.

I'm going tonight to see OhGr, and Lead into Gold.

 

Very excited, but not sure what the picture policy is gonna be. . so here's some shots from when I saw OhGr back in October (opening for KMFDM) and Paul Barker from November when he was touring with Revolting Cocks.

 

If I can get good pics tonight, will update later this week with em.
