Just another incredible performance from the greatest live band on the planet. Not much to say other than it was fantastic. Took my 14-year-old brother for his first ever concert, and there's no better band to cut your live music teeth on in my opinion. Never Got Caught was pretty good, Lionize was actually pretty fantastic and way better than the first time I saw them, the Bakerton Group was, well, Clutch without vocals, so naturally pretty damn good, and Clutch was Clutch. That should be enough information to know how great this show was. Finally got to see some songs I've never seen them do (this was my 5th Clutch gig), and they encored acoustically which they've never done until this tour - weird arrangements of the songs, but still quite good. Setlist below.

Pure Rock Fury
Slow Hole to China
The Mob Goes Wild
Profits of Doom
50,000 Unstoppable Watts
Struck Down
The Yeti
The House That Peterbilt
Power Player
Cypress Grove
King of Arizona
The Soapmakers
Burning Beard
The Dragonfly
Child of the City
Electric Worry
One Eye Dollar
---
(Acoustic encore)
The Regulator
Tight Like That
Ship of Gold

Also, I'm looking over my Word document of "Clutch setlists by album," and I've still only seen five Blast Tyrant songs over the course of five shows. When it hits an anniversary, they seriously need to do it in its entirety.

DM - Sorry, I couldn't make it sounds like you had a great time!

The setlist from last year was a bit better (even if it was smoldering in that mother fucker) but sounds like a great all around show. :)

I wonder how long they will continue the acoustic encore? I'm very intrigued to hear the songs unplugged. Could this mean they might actually do "Ghost" again? :eek: :bliss:

I would love to see Blast Tyrant in it's entirety. WYSIWYG, Ghost, and Goat Warfare aka Weathermaker are the only songs off Blast Tyrant I have not seen live. It makes sense because Blast Tyrant is Clutch's concept album. I hope they do another "Evening with Clutch" tour like they did back in 04' -05'(two full Clutch sets oh yea :party: :party:) and maybe they will play the whole thing. I went to one of the evening with shows and it's probably one of my top shows of all time.

I went to the show at Headliners in Toledo last year w/ Maylene & The Sons of Disaster. While it was a great show, they crammed about 1,000 people into that bar stage instead of the empty warehouse next to it. It was so uncomfortable, so I skipped this one.

Was this show in the bar or the warehouse?

Warehouse. Big stage, huge standing area. Not that my crew cared how big it was from the FRONT ROW. :D :tongue:

Those nasty mattresses near the front were not still there were they?

Glad to hear they decided to setup on the big stage. Last year was smoldering but it was still awesome being that close to the band. However, after six songs I had to step outside.

Did they have a blue t-shirt that has Abe Lincoln's head in the middle of all these other images that represent various Clutch songs?

Nope, haha. Didn't know those were ever there. :lol:

And nah I didn't see that shirt. A few with the classic logo, one with a hand holding a pocketwatch that my friend bought, another with the band on it that was a tour shirt...didn't look too closely though, went for the trucker hat. I assume it's for....wait for it....Peterbilt truckers. :dorky:

That's good those things looked like crackheads slept on them.

Oh okay it just came up on the merch site last week so probably not selling them on the road just yet. [

They also have a new Derek Hess design one that is based off a show poster he did for the band (hand holding an engine).

:lol: Every time I see a Peterbilt semi the song pops in my head.

Late getting to the party, but glad you had a blast. :rocker:

First off, that's a pretty rad fucking set (although what most folks don't seem to fathom is that just about any Clutch set is rad as fuck :metal:).

Second, I haven't been on here much lately, so I wasn't really even aware that you were going. Glad I didn't know, frankly, because it would have made me want to try that much harder to go, and really I had no business being there. My wife is ready to deliver any day now, and I've been busy helping make preparations and so forth. I played my copy of Full Fathom Five last night in honor of the show, though - being the nerd that I am. :eyes: :D

Third (and speaking of DVD's), they didn't have a copy of the new DVD for sale by any chance, did they? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna order that this week (or soon, anyway), and I was just curious. It includes the entirety of the self-titled album, plus some other tracks, I believe, so that's a no-brainer for me. :rocker:

Super glad they played some rarities like Slow Hole and King of Arizona for ya...that musta been sweet. Plus Pure Rock Fury...I seem to remember that being a fave of yourn. Personally, I would have been tickled by Dragonfly (not that it's one of my all-time faves, but it's a damn good one I haven't seen live yet), or Soapmakers. I have yet to see that one live, and it's one of my favorite Clutch songs of all time. I think it would absolutely kill live. Gotta git me somma that someday. :snivel:

Hope to go to a Clutch gig with youse someday...it's always way fucking better with fellow addicts aboard. :D

^^^ Hope all is well with the wifey

I think its funny reading the Clutch reviews on here. We all seem to have the song we've seen 9 times but dont care for, while there's one or two songs we seem to keep missing, while someone else has the exact opposite experience on the same songs.

God I love Clutch.

Yes, honestly there is no such thing as a bad Clutch set.

Hope things are going well with your family. I heard they were supposed to have 9:30 Club DVD at the show but I'm not sure since I couldn't make it either. Slow Hole is a crowd pleaser definitely King of Arizona is a very groovy number and Eric Oblander doesn't overdue the mouth harp too much. Dragonfly is definitely a fav of mine and if it's played I'm always happy. Soapmakers seems to be the one that always gets played in other states I have caught it twice in eleven Clutch shows. Soapmakers does kill live especially when people start doing "the ogre stomp" then when it slows down they don't know what to do :lol:

Hopefully, all the Ohio gear heads on this site will get a shot to meet up the next time Clutch rolls into town.

Yep, should have mentioned, Eric Oblander came out and did harp on three songs. And yeah, Soapmakers and Dragonfly were among the highlights. Hell, I can't complain about any Clutch setlist though, they've got easily 100 songs I'd kill to see live any day of the week. :lol:

And yeah, that new DVD was on sale. Of course, I've already had it for a few weeks. :dorky:

I figured since it's his hometown (please tell me he didn't do it on any songs that didn't have the mouth harp in the first place). I once heard Oregon live and he was playing the mouth harp and it was ruining the song for me and most of the people in the crowd.

QFT! It's tough to find Clutch songs I wouldn't want to hear live. Have you watched it yet?

He did it on Electric Worry (of course), and honestly it escapes me what the other two he did it on were, so I guess it suffices to say that it wasn't overbearing. But yeah, back in '08 when he was doing it on Big News I and II and shit it was just plain wrong.

And yeah, I watched it. It's fantastic as one would expect. Great to see those cuts from the self-titled that I doubt I'll ever see in person like 7 Jam and Droid.

Based on looking at the setlist King of Arizona definitely and either Child of the City or Struckdown I'm guessing. I was at a show where he did it on Big News I and II and I was not impressed. He also did it on Hoodoo Operator which is fine since the original had Neil playing mouth harp.

Excellent and that's very true because in 11 Clutch shows I have never seen either one.

It was King of Arizona and The Soapmakers actually. King of Arizona, fine. Soapmakers...well, it wasn't distracting, and he didn't play it during the part that matters ("As they stirred heaven and earth combined to one" etc.) :D

Hmmm, doesn't seem it would be out of place at the beginning of Soapmakers at all and that's good it wasn't distracting.

It seems the other song Eric was in was Cypress Grove which it fits well so no problem there.

Note: The Yeti features one of JP's amazing drum solos at the end! :rocker: :party: :drool:

And if you watch the video of Burning Beard, the first time Neil sings "the seven habits of the highly infected calf" and he's pointing at and staring down someone in the first row.....that someone is me. :D
