So Dan and I had to leave before the encore to make the 12:40 Metra train back to the suburbs.
And the encore of "Never Lose The Feeling" and "Kill the Superheroes" was just about perfect.
And to that I have to say, "FUCK US." Seriously. What the fuck.
But hey, I got Adam Franklin's setlist:
That's a shitload of Raise. Six songs from that album? Surprising. Fantastic, of course. Bobzilla, unless it was during the encore, they didn't play "Feel So Real." Maybe you're thinking of one of the other Raise songs? Anyways.
Bill is right, no "Harry & Maggie" is sort of heartbreaking. Still. Still. "99th Dream"? That was pretty fucking great, wasn't it. The first three tracks from Mezcal Head? Uh, yeah. "Duel" was definitely the one song where a bunch of the people there completely lost it. I sure did. Dan and I were front and center, by the way. I was watching Adam's foot pedal work the whole time. This middle aged drunk lady kept groping me, it was awesome. I tried to lead people into getting excited about the "Blowin' Cool" intro and "Last Train To Satansville," but man, "Duel" was the real crowd pleaser that night. Makes sense, of course. What an amazing fucking song that is. Sounded fantastic. There was this chick a couple people down to the left from me and she had hair down to her ass and was just freaking the fuck out, it was great. "Rave Down" and "Son of Mustang Ford," how about those for some jamz, oh my god. Great show. Old guys playing ballsy guitar rock that puts to shame all of the other meek and feeble guitar rock bands in existence? Fuck yeah.
Seriously, though, "Kill The Superheroes" and "Never Lose That Feeling." What the fuck. Whatever. Fuck everything.
Again, fantastic show. They brought it. It all seemed very real and genuine, I don't know. I felt it. Good job, dudes.
And the openers! They mostly just looked awkward and sounded like Swervedriver. I totally called Terra Diablo's "Tomorrow Never Knows" cover from the drumbeat/one note bass riff. The Life & Times was actually really cool, except the drums sounded way louder than everything else in comparison to the wonderfully mixed headliners.
Sickpup, were you standing about four yards back from the left (your left) side of the stage? I'm pretty sure I spotted you. We saw Bobzilla a few rows back, too.
Again, great show. As Sickpup said, "The songs are just too good." OTM.
