It's fitting that my last 2010 show may have been my favorite. A truly fantastic year for live shows in San Francisco.

Full review tomorrow plus pics and a video.

It really pisses me off that Agalloch can't do a full tour. THey are so damn good I really want to see them but can't afford to travel outside Minnesota to see them. Maybe somone will get a nice audio bootleg on DIME, that'll be as close as I can get.

Set is great. I'm still pissed the Seattle show was 21+. It's just not fair...

Yeah, that's easily my fav song of theirs.
That song just has everything that Agalloch has to offer!
It epitomizes the band.

Agreed. Falling Snow and I am the Wooden Doors in place of Ghosts would make this set worlds better

I do agree that Ghosts is the low point in the set, but John explained that it is his favorite song on the album. I understand him wanting to play it.

Definitely one of the best shows I've been to all year. Agalloch put on such an amazing show. It was almost life changing. I actual enjoyed Dispirit quite a bit too. The other band.... not so much.

Show was amazing. Agalloch's singer's voice surprised me.
I missed the first two bands but my friends said they sucked, and having seen Dispirit before I wouldn't be surprised if this was the case.

I really liked Dispirit, but they weren't a spectacle like Agalloch were. They sounded great, but weren't interesting visually.

Where were you? I arrived at like 10:15 and the place was packed so I didnt bother looking around. I read that it was sold out with 666 people in attendance. If that's true, that's awesome.
