All told, a great way to spend a weekend! My sister and I drove down to Columbus Thursday night and stayed at my aunt's place, and headed up Friday first thing. Wifey and our German exchange student came out Friday night, and all Saturday. They couldn't make it Sunday, so my brother drove up from KY. It was actually the first time I've been to a concert/music-event with both siblings, so it was totally cool
Pretty basic, but pretty hooky, and they were great performers.
I wanted to hate these guys the instant they took the stage . But, they got down, and I enjoyed their set.
We Are Harlot.
Man, hard to tell. All I could hear was bow-noise .
VERY awesome! They've got a new singer (didn't know that), and he nailed all those old parts. Great performers!
Not really into the music, but a pretty good act to watch live.
Holy dog-shit on stale bread. Blah. I'd have gone to see Hatebreed instead, who played at the same time, but we were hungry as hell, and in-line for Island Noodles
Slash w/ Myles Kennedy.
Pretty good stuff, aside from Myles seemingly not being very comfortable on stage, and Slash looking like he could give a shit... which, I suppose, is part of his schtick
Mailed it in. Blah. He can still belt out those Antichrist Superstar hits, but his schtick is terribly dated and old. Alice Cooper's act has aged better.
Came to hate, but can't. I mean, the albums are terrible, but holy SHIT, what a live show. I'd go see them again, 10/10.
Red Sun Rising.
More radio-friendly rock, but not bad. Pretty fun to see live.
"Super" group. Meh.
Fucking AWESOME. 5/5 . Vid for lolz.
Fucking AWESOME. I hope I can rock that hard when I get that old
Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts.
Ehh. Weiland was better here than he was in that Vasoline video going around, where he looks half dead. This weekend, he was only 2/5ths dead.
I actually enjoyed the show
In This Moment.
Fuck yeah. 10/10 will see again!
Who said Halford isn't what he used to be? Sweet Jesus, the guy tore the place up, I couldn't imagine him being more ON. Despite not being very mobile around stage, he sang his chaps off!
The Pretty Reckless.
Meh. We actually left these guys early to go catch...
Fucking awesome. Total 70's vibe rock act, but a total blast to see live! I saw them last year, and they were just as awesome.
Hardly worth noting, since you all know these guys basically ripped every other band in half the whole weekend.
Actually kicked lots of ass. Definitely the only chick-fronted rock band that doesn't need to rely on the sex-factor to put on a good show.
.... So, due to some storm issues, there were some delays, and band start/end times were getting compressed, so I only had time for a few songs before getting back to the mainstage for the next act, but it was cool seeing these guys again. I'm still totally a freshman-release-er with you, Mr Bulbs
Pretty standard kickassery. Again, not a real fan of some of their later tunes, but still a great live band.
