Tonight I got to see one of my favorite bands ever. One of the founders of the genres of music which I love, and the only one that is still around. I didn't know they were still together, let alone, released a CD a month or two ago.
I had learned about the show when I went and saw Fear Before The March of Flames and Heavy Heavy Low Low. I was surprised to see the lineup, let alone Piebald. They played with MC Chris. He is a rapper who huffed helium and raps for cartoons. The crowd was really .. Divided. You could tell who was there for who. MC Chris had the bigger fan base there, even though Piebald headlined.
You could just tell by looking at them. MC Chris nerds. Aquateen fanatics.
MC Chris had people raise their hands if they loved weed. You could tell the guys who were there for piebald cause our hands wernt up.
Someone defiantly yelled "Piebald!".
The first two opener bands were surprisingly good.. Especially the second one The House of Fools. They had an amazing classic rock sound, and even did a Floyd cover. I'm working on getting the CD, and keeping an eye on them in the future. Theyre touring with He is Legend, but they think they're dropping the tour before it comes back up here. Nice stuff. The first band was some month old band out of Portland. The lead singer had some serious talent, and they did pretty good considering the circumstances.
All the MC Chris fools left after he was done. His act was funny, but anyone who payed just to see him is a moron who doesn't appreciate music.
Piebald was amazing. Period. I was front and center and knew all the words to all the songs except the new ones of their new CD, (not that good.) There was like 5 people around me like me. The .. 30 or so people who came for Piebald, and stayed for Piebald, was the liveliest group I've ever been apart of. Jumping pushing, singing. True fans clearly. It was the funnest set of my life. Andrew got decked.
The concert as a whole was on par with the He Is Legend/ Fall of Troy show.
They played all the songs I wanted to hear except "Watch her Flow" and "King of the Road". They had a real good feel of the songs people wanted to hear though. They encored with a ACDC cover, accompanied by MC Chris and they guys from House of Fools. Impressive.
Then I got the guys to sign my hat, cause they're Boston boys, it's a Boston hat, and I'm a sick fan boy. Love Piebald. All of this with a Sharpie I literally stole from MC Chris and his manager. lol In front of them.
