I loved that the crowd had fun. I had a few good laughs cuz I wasnt soaked in fake blood and I appreciated the cheesy theatrics. I just really wish I could have heard it more clearly. Next time maybe?
I’m gonna go ahead and give the band some serious credit for being able to put on a good show, play their instruments in a technically sound and experienced way
Even though it was dark, you could see him grinning as the crowd cheered. Following him were Justin Aufdemkamp, Ryan Neff, and B.J. Stead. Last but not least, was Levi Benton, having transformed from the quiet man I interviewed to a metal god. They automatically ripped into their first song, and they didn’t hold back a thing.
As for the bassist, I was blown away. Daniel Shapiro was either classically trained or has the natural talent of a god, because as someone who believes bass and drums make or break a song, I was beyond impressed.
I was in the middle of the crowd, surrounded by mostly teenage boys talking about how stoned they were and how stoked they were and how awesome their band was and how drunk they got last weekend. Losers, but meh. I was just excited. I knew that that night was going to be groundbreaking, life-changing. I felt it in my bones.
All well and good but still Twitter annoying. Until I saw the video. Let me tell you that getting video at the Webster is tougher than sneaking booze in to prom, so I am not sure how this can be ‘fan video’..but its outstanding.
With a cigarette almost constantly in one hand, William Control’s infectious synth and bass beats overpowered any trace of horrible scene kid music that I was hoping to avoid.This still pervaded the show even when he faced technical difficulties
They all have such an incredible presence and were so fun to watch. Opening up with “Spidersong”, and older tune, the crowd immediately joined along in singing- including me. The substantially packed venue was already having a good time, and the band was just getting started.
There is something to be said when your ‘unclean’ singer starts his set by saying how ‘fucking tired’ he is. Were you at the office all day? I don’t want you to tell me your troubles, I think it’s your job to entertain your fans and help them forget there’s.
