Quick review as I'm extremely hungover, I'm really surprised this show was not sold out since it was basically full as soon as we entered the venue.

Red Fang hit the stage at 7:30, and finished at 8:00. Great band to start the show and the sound was very tight.

Red Fang's set:

Hank Is Dead
Throw Up
Good to Die
Prehistoric Dog

Now, I decided to give The Dillinger Escape Plan a chance live since many people on this forum say how good they're live shows are. So they hit the stage at 8:30 and I decided to watch the first couple tracks, and much to my surprise, they were dreadful. To me, they're just noise and a really really bad band in general. They played for about 40 minutes, but luckly I stayed at the bar.

The Dillinger Escape Plan set:

Panasonic Youth
Room Full of Eyes
Milk Lizard
Farewell, Mona Lisa
Gold Teeth on a Bum
Black Bubblegum
When Good Dogs Do Bad Things / Chinese Whispers
Endless Endings / Good Neighbour
Sunshine the Werewolf
43% Burnt

Mastodon hit the stage at 9:30 and played until 11. This is my second time seeing Mastodon since Sonisphere, and damn they were fucking awesome. They played almost all of the songs I wanted to hear from The Hunter, and a great selection of old songs (mostly from Blood Mountain and Levithan). There's no difference in the set to the US tour, however they added 'Thickening' just before 'Blasteroid', also Brent sounded great which was a nice surprise, his screaming during Aqua Dementia was brutal!. So all-in-all an awesome night without the exception of Dillinger (Sorry Dillinger fans :cool:)

Mastodon's set:

Dry Bone Valley
Black Tongue
Crystal Skull
I Am Ahab
Capillarian Crest
Colony of Birchmen
Sleeping Giant
Ghost of Karelia
All the Heavy Lifting
Curl of the Burl
Bedazzled Fingernails
Circle of Cysquatch
Aqua Dementia
Crack the Skye
Where Strides the Behemoth
Iron Tusk
March of the Fire Ants
Blood and Thunder
Creature Lives (with Red Fang)

Holy fuckballs. That's a pretty damn killer Mastodon set.

The set from Red Fang is pretty rad, too. That's about what they played when I saw them at Metalliance last year.

Great gig report. Thanks for posting.

I mean....YEA....but it's the same exact set they played during the first leg of the US tour except they added Thickening. Change it up boys. How do you not get sick of playing the same show every night?

I'd like to hear Crack the Skye, The Last Baron, Ghost of Karelia, Oblivion, and The Czar, which is most of CTS, so me too, I guess.

Crack The Skye live is phenomenal. I was lucky enough to see it the first time around with Intronaut and Kylesa. The MN show was also the last time to date, they played Hearts Alive.

I hope Minnesota gets treated to another Mastodon show at some point, there has been no confirmation from the band nor the venue they are supposedly playing at that it's happening, but the radio station 93X keeps promoting it. I don't know what to believe.

It was definitely cool to see CTS live in full. But the 3rd time aroudn it got kinda old.

02-18-2012, 04:39 PM
The Czar is probably in my top 10 Mastodong songs.

Other than that, I'm cool with little to no CTS songs anymore. :P
