Me and my bud got to the show right before Baroness came on. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from them live because I really hadn't heard anything good or bad about their live performances but I must say I was impressed. I'm not familiar with any of their stuff that's not on the Blue Record, but everything they played minus one song was from that album.

Here is Baroness's set:

1. Bullhead's Psalm
2. The Sweetest Curse
3. Isak
4. Jake Leg
5. Ogeechee Hymnal
6. A Horse Called Golgotha
7. War, Wisdom, and Rhyme
8. Swollen and Halo

(I'm not sure if they played the song off the Red Album or Jake Leg first, so those may be out of order)

Between the Buried and Me was on next and I have to say that I'm not a fan of them at all. I understand why people enjoy them and appreciate their creativity, but the music just isn't for me. Too much metalcore influence in their music too I think. We watched some of their set and I know they played "Prequel to the Sequel", but not long after that we went out to get some food.

All of the bands set up all their equipment and got the sound straightened out suprisingly fast, and as soon as we got back from our food break Mastodon took the stage. Their performance was great, although the sound could have been better. Crack the Skye was awesome in its entirety, and the rest of the songs they played after that were all good too. They were a very entertaining band, and I'm glad I went.

I'm not familiar with some stuff off of Remission and Blood Mountain, so I may be incorrect on whether they played Ole Nessie or not.

1. Oblivion
2. Divinations
3. Quintessence
4. The Czar
5. Ghost of Karellia
6. Crack the Skye
7. The Last Baron
8. Crusher Destroyer
9. Crystal Skull
10. I Am Ahab
11. Circle of the Cysquatch
12. Capillarian Crest
13. Ol'e Nessie (Maybe...)
14. Aqua Dementia
15. Iron Tusk
16. March of the Fire Ants
17. Blood and Thunder

Some of the songs in the second half may be out of order.

I do hope that Baroness keeps in "Swollen and Halo" when I see them. And since the Blue Album is quite fantastic, I can manage a set heavy with songs from it (despite the Red Album being amazing).
And it's good to hear that Brent wasn't acting up (during not perfect sound), compared to what's been said from the last couple of shows on this tour.

He was good most of the time but at the beginning of I Am Ahab he stopped the band because someone in the front row yelled something. Then he went over to the microphone and asked who said it, then he was just like "Shut up ok" or something like that.

I'm willling to bet that the one lone song Baroness played from Red Album was "Isak".

I almost drove from Cleveland for this show. The only thing is, I've seen both Baroness and Mastodon within the last twelve months, so it would have been hard to justify. The Baroness set was a stripped-down version of the one I saw on their headlining tour last fall, except for War, Wisdom and Rhyme. That would have been cool. Mastodon played a few songs I haven't seen them do live yet, but the ones I really would have liked to see from this set would be Crusher Destroyer and Blood and Thunder. Sorry I missed those. What with Brent's shenanigans on this tour as of late, though, I wasn't willing to take the gamble versus what I would have had to bargain on the home front to get out to this show. I'll just throw on "The Workhorse Chronicles" tonight and get my kicks vicariously through that. ;)

Glad you had a blast, though - and thanks for posting. :fist:

The song was Isak from Red Album. The lights went out twice during the interludes during Baroness's set. Between the Buried and Me played 4 songs. The opener was from the new album, then Prequel to the Sequel, then a song off of Alaska, and Disease, Injury, Madness. Baroness blew them off of the stage and you could tell the vibe Baroness created got lost a little bit with the blast beats from BTBAM. Crack The Skye sounded fantastic but the second set started to sound a bit muddy until March of the Fire Ants and Blood and Thunder. For the record, Brent seemed to really be enjoying himself until the guy heckeled him in the front. I was 10 rows back so I didn't hear what the guy did, but Troy seemed really pissed at the guy too.

I have only a passing interest in mastodon - is the guy acting like a douchebag the same winner that got his ass kicked/almost killed a few years ago?

Thats a tough one but I'd have to go with with this show.

I gotta be honest, man. All of these bands are gonna be back around but you're not gonna have another prom. I've never understood why metalheads don't go to prom like it makes them cool. I know you'll make the right decision for you because you're thinking about it so hard, but I'd go to prom. See Mastodon next year.

Oh my bad man, I didn't realize you were trying to make that decision. But yes I do agree with DethMaiden on this one.

I had my prom last week and although I didn't find it too exciting while I was there, it was still pretty fun. Mastodon will be back, but supposedly high school is "the best years of our lives", so make the most out of them I guess.

I know, I already have pretty much decided on going, but every time I think I decide, I want to do the other. It's not a matter of what makes me cool, it's a matter of which I think will be the most valued. I've pretty much decided that's going to be my prom.

I've also seen Mastodon like 5 times.

I would say that's only true for people that don't go to college. :D

Although, even college is not necessarily the best years of your life. I party just as much now (mid 20's) as I did in college, but now I have a job that I semi-enjoy (as opposed to classes which I hated) and I actually have money (unlike in college when I was constantly broke).

Regarding your prom, I would look at it like this. If you want to go to your prom, then go. If you don't, then don't. I wouldn't even consider the concert as part of your decision. IF for whatever reason you decide you don't want to go to prom, then go to the concert since you just so happen to be free that night.

And it's good to hear that Brent wasn't acting up (during not perfect sound), compared to what's been said from the last couple of shows on this tour.

as said before he did stop a song and bitch out someone in the audience. there's a bar right next to the venue, Rialto's, that all the ppl hang at after shows and the musicians know that. one friend asked him what was up with that, and he said something like "that asshole had been heckling me since before the show." OK, but seems to me a professional 10 years in would've learned to ignore a heckler

now on to the EPIC part. Another friend of mine got punched in the face by Brent Hinds. That sounds really fucked up, unless you knew the kid. He doesn't know when to stop drinking and starts shit. Anyway he keeps fucking with Brent. Saying shit like "How'd that pussy faget from SOAD put you in the hospital? He's a skinny bitch!" and just being a dick. Brent takes it in stride for awhile, then they sorta start play pushing each other. Well we know how that always ends. Table gets knocked over, glasses break, dude throws a bunch at Brent and misses and then Brent just cold cocks him. "Dude, I can't believe you just hit me." priceless.
