I went only to see Despised Icon and Devildriver. First off all of the opening "hardcore" bands sounded the same and the only one worth watching was Veil of Maya. Admist a world of similarities and unoriginal bands these guys were a breath of fresh air, but still just a bunch of breakdowns with some cool guitar solo's with effects.

Finally around 8:30, after hear what seemed to be the same breakdown 10,000 times, Despised Icon came on and killed it. the list-
Furitive Monologue
A Fractured Hand
Day of Mourning
The Sunset Will Never Charm Us
In The Arms of Perdition

After sitting outside while emmure played a bunch more breakdowns we shuffled inside to get a good spot for Devildriver. They played a shorter setlist due to curfew restrictions, but here's the list-
End of the Line
Not All Who Wander Are Lost
Pray For Villains
Nothing's Wrong
I Could Care Less
Clouds Over California
Die (And Die Now)
Back With A Vengence
Before The Hangman's Noose
Meet the Wretched
I Dreamed I Died

Both Devildriver and Despised Icon were amazing live. I met both singers of the from DI and they were cool as shit. DI shirts were only 10 bucks but limited quantites of 2XL. Other than the ridiculous traffic on 271 before the show, this was an awesome show for my first trip to Cleveland.
