I love seeing them my first night in town. There were some incredible moments with that band. They just put out a new CD/album. I have since then gotten home and I've listened to it a few times now. It's awesome! There is 1 new song that especially had me going. It's different from anything I've seen them do and it's phenomenal. It is "Assault On Precinct 13" by John Carpenter. It's from a film. I checked out the soundtrack on-line and I love the GAT version. I love the whole CD. There was one other song by Mike Dillon that I especially loved, but I'm not sure which one right now. They played it that night as well.
I must admit, as great as this show was it felt a little flat compared to what I know they are capable of. I mean, I was still blown away at many moments, there were just some that felt a little flat. that's very unusual. Usually every moment is mind-blowing. I probably needed sleep.
It turned for me when they started that John Carpentersong . Then the old songs got great, too. I mean great! Then, I irritated myself when Nigel jumped on the keys. I think he did it impulsively, uninvited. But, part of the reason I don't like him is because he's so demanding of people's attention. It's annoying. He couldn't stop playing during the solos. I thought he was ruining it, but I know I'm being harsh
I left a little before the end, around 3:20. It was great and I was satisfied. It was a great first day, I just could have done without Nigel is all.
