BLS @ Roseland Theater
September 21st, 2010

2 Cents opened and put on a good show. They are a talented six-piece that reminds me of a cross between Pantera and Faith No More; very entertaining frontman.

Zakk and the other members of the chapter (NJ, Florida, and Pittsburgh respectively) took the stage at 9:40. They prepared behind the raised curtain bearing the BLS emblem.

The curtain dropped to begin the show.

Fantastic show though only 80 min (with no encore):confused:.

The crowd was great.

Good set. Could be a little longer. Was his guitar solo 20 minutes. I saw him in rochester last year and his solo was about 20 minutes.

BLS never does encores silly

Edit: if Clutch and Bodom also played but you failed to mention them at all, I am disappoint

I prefer bands to not do encores. It's not real encores anymore, they're all planned..... So it's really just a waste of 60-120 seconds of your life just standing there..........

True. I've only seen a few bands that did "real" encores - when they had to go and talk to each other and figure out what to play.

Yeah a planned 2-3 minute break after busting your balls for 90 minutes is understandable, but the way most bands do it now is silly.
I won't complain if this set sticks though.

So did all the years of excessive alcohol abuse erase both Stronger Than Death and 1919 Eternal from Zakk's memory completely?

It's not like those aren't the two best BLS albums or anything.

It's not a bad set, considering Zakk isn't the best setlist maker. I hope Southern Dissolution makes it in soon. That my favorite from of the newer songs. BLS never play much longer than 80 or 90 minutes. Its probably because they tour with at least 3 bands that play before them.

Uhhh not exactly thrilled w/ that set. But whomever said Zakk isn't good w/ making setlists that is pretty spot on. The set makes me wonder what happened from '99 - 02 or so. I've heard alot of the newer stuff at this point. A few older ones wouldn't be worst thing in the world. Hoping Clutch gets atleast a decent amount of time for their slot.

Plus the younger, club going metal audience doesn't make much noise between songs like an AC/DC or Maiden audience so metal club acts don't do encores because the audience doesn't know what to do when waiting for them.

It's not so much the lack of encore, rather it felt like there were a few neglected tracks that could have been added to a great, but too short set.

2 Cents was the opener with a local band as well. No Clutch or Bodom.

Being part of the younger crowd, I don't make any noise during the planned encore time. Because if the lights don't come on, it's obvious the band is coming back out, so why bother making noise? And if the lghts do come on and the staff is already working on load out, it's obvious they're not gonna do another song, so again, why bother? Of all the shows I've been to this year, I've only made noise during one planned encore.... And that's because it was fucking Danzig. ANd it's illegal to not scream for Danzig.

In this river was the highlight for me, I saw them last time they came through when zakk did like a 20 minute solo for that song, it was kinda cool to see Nick do one this go around; and suicide messiah. :rocker:

Hey Zakk...Stronger than Death called. It wants you to play some songs off it.
