Coheed and Cambria [May. 16th, 2010|01:35 pm]
Team Jason.
We get there, There are about 4 lines of chaos to get in the building...most un-organized place I've seen in a long time.

Finally doors open at 7, we get in the building..Show didn't start for an hour and a half after. Which is beyond ridiculous. I guess the band Torche got their stuff stolen in Chicago and they pushed back the start time and gave the other band a longer set. Which would have been fine if they made an announcement of some kind instead of just letting everyone sit there and get pissed.

Finally, Circa Survive came on. What a piece of shit. The music was generic rock which would have been fine. But the singer was god awful, looked like he was high and had a god complex and just shrieked into the microphone. Atleast when Claudio from Coheed sings at high pitches, he does it melodically and with the song..not just scream..I finally lost it for this band with the lyrics "cut me...cut me gently" Awful..Awful band

Coheed & Cambria: Finally came out at around 10..and rocked the place. I wish the setlist had a little more variety (only one song from Good Apollo Vol 1 and 2)

Though you can tell they actually wanted to be there and play (Unlike the Heaven and Hell show last summer)

Setlist:
1. One
2. The Broken
3. Here We Are Juggernaut
4. The Camper Velourium III:Al The Killer
5. Everything Evil
6. World of Lines
7. Made out of Nothing (All That I Am)
8. Three Evils
9. Pearl of the Stars
10. Time Consumer
11. No World For Tomorrow
12. Guns of Summer
13. A Favor House Atlantic
14. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
Encore:
15. Far
16. Welcome Home
17. 21:13

Team Jason.
February 12th, 2010

Amazing Show.

Michael Franti and Spearhead: Opened the show. A very good opening choice, not really a big fan of the singer(s) stage presence, but they put on a good show, and had alot of fan interaction. I actually enjoyed the music show much I bought the cd. They have a very "Reggae, Groove" vibe. Great opener.

John Mayer: Was fantastic. Also, gave Michael Akerfeldt a run for his money for being funny on stage. Also, the man can WAIL! on guitar.

Setlist:
1. Heartbreak Warfare
2. Crossroads
3. Vultures
4. Bigger Than My Body
5. Slow Dancing In A Burning Room
6. Perfectly Lonely
7. Assassins
8. War of My Life
9. No Such Thing
10. Steve Jordan Drum Solo "Groove"
11. Waiting On The World To Change
12. Charlie Wilson Keyboard Solo
13. SledgeHammer (Peter Gabriel Cover)
14. Edge of Desire
15. Half of My Heart
16. Message in a Bottle (Police Cover)
17. Why Georgia
18. Say
ENCORE:
19. Who Says
20. Guitar Solo
21. Gravity

Funny few notes:

"Me taking off my jacket, you understand, is sort of like Sylvester Stallone turning his hat around in 'Over the Top,' You know, like Sylvester Stallone says in 'Over the Top,' one movie in a giant string of arm-wrestling movies. That's when you know Hollywood was flush with cash. Somebody walked in and said, 'I got an idea, you take Stallone ... ' they're like, 'Sold. Wait, hold on, what's he doing?' 'He's arm wrestling.' 'Double sold. Let's do it.' 'You know I wondered, did he say "Over the top" in the movie? Could that movie have been that 80's. He turns around his hat and says "I'm going to take it, OVER THE TOP". Well anyway, me taking of my jacket is my way to tell you, I'm taking it over the top."

(After adding Michigan cities into the song "Who Says")
"Yeah, I'm geographically cool"

Him getting the crowd to sing along rant was also funny, but cant remember his wording.

Amazing show, Great time.

Dethklok/Mastodon:October 21st, 2009. State Theatre. [Oct. 22nd, 2009|09:26 am]
Team Jason.
Mastodon: Sounded incredible. They played the entire Crack the Skye album like they did when they headlined last, but I didn't go to that show, so it was
pretty badass. Then encored a song from the previous albums and did a cover of the Melvins "The Bit". Brann Dailor was a little off a few times, but with
all the complex parts of the songs that they have it's ok to mess up a few times. Not alot were to noticeable. So all is well.

Setlist:
1.)Oblivion
2.)Divinations
3.)Quintessence
4.)The Czar
5.)Ghost of Karelia
6.)Crack the Skye
7.)The Last Baron
Encore:
8.)Circle Cysquatch
9.)Aqua Dementia
10.)Where Strides the Behemoth
11.)Mother Puncher
12.)The Bit (Melvins Cover)

Dethklok: Was amazing, the songs came across strong and powerful live. Having Gene Hoglan really helps that. That guy is a beast.
The bass player and guitar player played up to par. Brandon Small was great. Even at the end of the set when he was doing the voices of Pickles, Nathan, and Skwisgaar.
Amusing stuff, the backing video was fun and entertaining as well.

But there was a fun video during the set up with Brutal Legend being Dethklok's roadie that was amusing.

Setlist:
1.)DethTheme
2.)Bloodlines
3.)Burn The Earth
4.)Hatredcopter
5.)Black Fire Upon Us
6.)Birthday Dethday
7.)Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle
8.)DethSupport
9.)Awaken
10.)The Gears
11.)Murmaider
12.)Thunderhorse
Encore:
13.)Go Into The Water
14.)Fansong

Got there late and gladly missed the two opening bands (heard some of converge..and after hearing it, i was good with not watching them on top of that)

Mastodon/Dethklok well worth the price of admission.

Paramore, Paper Route, The Swellers: 10/11/2009: State Theatre [Oct. 12th, 2009|10:36 am]
Team Jason.
[music |Paramore: Brick By Boring Brick.]

Got there late, missed the Swellers, which I can definitly live with.

Paper Route, has the least talented drummer I've ever seen, Each song was exactly the same. There is definitly a formula they have to writing songs, and I'm just not having it.

Paramore, was pretty good, as far as pop music goes. I love my guilty pleasure band. For Hayley getting over her illness, she sounded incredibly. The band was crisp, and on. Show was a little short compared to shows I'm used to seeing, But they did play 16 songs, just there songs are an average of 3.5 minutes long, so it happens. Great show though, I would love to see them cover Iron Maiden, Hayley could totally pull off a badass Bruce Dickinson impression.

Setlist:
1.) Intro
2.) Ignorance
3.) I Caught Myself
4.) That's what you get
5.) Looking Up
6.) Emergency
7.) Crush Crush Crush
8.) Turn It Off
9.) Here We Go Again
10.) Careful
11.) Conspiracy
12.) Where The Lines Overlap
13.) Decode
14.) Misguided Ghosts
15.) Misery Business
16.) Brick By Borning Brick

KISS-September 26th, 2009 [Oct. 5th, 2009|07:16 am]
Team Jason.
What could have been the very last show ever played at Cobo Hall. Kiss made history by playing two back to back shows.

Buckcherry, opened the show. While not thrilled about that, we did miss half their set awaiting to get into the show. The mix wasn't great either. We only heard about 4-5 songs. They closed with "Sorry" and then "Crazy Bitch". Which weren't completely horrible.

Then...

KISS!: Paying homage to KISS ALIVE album, they played alot of songs off of that album. along with other choice classics. The on stage antics were fun and incredible. Seeing Paul Stanley fly through the crowd before they played "Love Gun". The Guitar and Drum solos were fun. Gene with his Fire blowing, Blood drinking and all that. First time seeing KISS, and I'm glad as hell I went, it was a fun time.

Setlist:
1. Deuce
2. Strutter
3. Got To Choose
4. Modern Day Delilah
5. Hotter Than Hell
6. Com'n and Love Me
7. Parasite
8. She - Guitar Solo
9. Watchin' You
10. 100,000 Years- Drum Solo
11. Cold Gin
12. Black Diamond
13. Rock & Roll All Nite
ENCORE:
14. Shout It Out Loud
15. Lick It Up
16. I Love It Loud
17. Let Me Go Rock 'n' Roll
18. Love Gun
19. Detroit Rock City

Stellar closing song choice, amazing show. To see two roughly sixty year old jews fly in the air, amazing.

Coheed and Cambria/Heaven and Hell [Aug. 22nd, 2009|03:55 am]
Team Jason.
Coheed and Cambria:Started off with a bang, destroying through the first two songs. But it seems like they were trying to feed off the live crowd, and the crowd just wasn't into them. The majority of the people in the venue when Coheed started were wearing Coheed shirts, so you think they would be all into it. But there was roughly 3 people in the pavilion standing the whole time for C&C The band couldn't get into the rest of the set sadly. Though they only played for about 50 minutes they were still great. Just thought the crowd should have gave them more.

Setlist:
1.)No World For Tomorrow
2.)Gravemakers and Gunslingers
3.)In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3
4.)10 Speed
5.)The End Complete III/The Trooper
6.)Al The Killer
7.)Welcome Home
8.)The Final Cut


Heaven and Hell: It was at the start of their set that we had realized they seem to be one of those bands the surpresses the sound of the opening band. They were way louder than Coheed was. Which is upsetting, but besides losing some respect for them their show was well played and for guys well into their 50's/60's it was still great. Except the "drum solo", kind of not impressive

Setlist:
1.)The Mob Rules
2.)Children of the Sea
3.)I
4.)The Bible Black
5.)Time Machine
6.)Drum Solo
7.)Fear
8.)Falling Off The Edge of the World
9.)Follow The Tears
10.)Die Young
11.)Heaven and Hell
Encore:
12.)Country Girl/Neon Knights.

Opeth/Enslaved: Clutch Cargos: May 24th, 2009 [May. 25th, 2009|03:48 pm]
Team Jason.
Enslaved: Pretty enjoyable, not to familiar with their body of work. BUT the show last night did make me intrigued to dwelve into it.

Opeth: *FUCKING AMAZING* Even the 8th time around. Amazing.

Setlist:
Heir Apparent
Ghost of Perdition
Godhead's Lament
*Soldier of Fortune* Snippet
Wreath
Karma
Hessian Peel
Closure
The Night and The Silent Water
The Lotus Eater

*The Drapery Falls* Crowd Singing Snippet

Encore:
Fredrick Solo
Demon of The Fall

Funny Moments:
While introducing the band, Mikael had Fredrick do a "classic rock move"..Which was the classic rock back slide..He played a lick and quickly stuttered stepped moving backwards. Funny as hell when you see it.

"I sucked my own cock last night"-MA
"This place used to be a church right?..That's ironic when you worship satan!"-MA
"Does it sound good out there, cause we don't know. We only know what it sounds like up here. Let me tell you...It sounds like shit"-MA
After the crowd sing the verse of Drapery Falls:
"That was really good..you guys sang in tune. Like I do!"-MA
"Iron Maiden..Judas Priest...Iron Maiden.. *Fan in Audience..SLLLAAYYYEEERRR*...I never really liked Slayer..the only thing I remotely liked by them is Season in the Abyss...is that a good record for you?...I'm much more of a MetallicA guy...But in the 80's my favorite band was the Scorpions..Still are today."MA
"That...is the Swedish Steve Harris..Mr. Martin Mendez"-MA
There was more and if I remember I'll put them in later.
