I got there a bit late & caught the last 4 songs by Know Lyfe. They're a really cool metal band from Lansing. Check em out! They were the local band on the Detroit date of MayhemFest this summer. Also, their singer helped book this tour w/ 36 Crazyfists in Michigan, so thank you very much!

Next up was Straight Line Stitch. I've seen em 6x now, and I like them a lot. They absolutely killed it last night! They really got the crowd into it and warmed us up for the headliners.

36 Crazyfists headlined. I've seen them a ton of times open for almost every band under the sun (Chimaira, Machine Head, Devildriver, Walls of Jericho, Slipknot, Trivium, In Flames, Fear Factory). However, I had never seen them headline. They're one of my favorite bands, so this was extra special for me. The set was incredible! They played so many songs that I've never seen em play before. This tour is also a celebration of the 10th anniversary of their album BITTERNESS THE STAR, so they played most of that album straight through (except a few songs). I LOVED hearing "Circle the Drain" and "Turns to Ashes." Brock said this show felt like a house party b/c of the vibe. The crowd was really into their set, which always makes the show more fun. They damn near destroyed the room during "At the End of August." Toward the end of the set they asked for an audience request & played "Clear the Coast." Wow, what a show! Setlist:

That's a sexy fucking setlist but no "Bloodwork" makes me disappointed.

What was the Straight Line Stitch setlist.

Seen SLS once and they were awesome and I'm actually friends with Alexis and Ian from SLS so I'll have to ask them how their tour is going.

I don't remember. They played 8 or 9 songs, including "Bar Room Brawl," "What You Do to Me," and "Black Veil." I'm going to this tour 2 more times, so I'll try to get a more complete SLS setlist.

I remember when I saw this band open for Napalm Death, I kept thinking "I can't believe a band in this age and day is still making this kind of music."

And no, it wasn't a compliment at all. :lol:

Although I admit I haven't checked them out beyond that at all.

No "Bloodwork" or "Absent are the Saints"? Fuck that.

No Bloodwork is a shame, but that is one hell of a set!

Yeah, I went to that tour twice. It's cool if you don't dig 36 CF. I wouldn't fault them for still making that type of music, though. I mean, so what if that scene isn't popular anymore. Better for them to make the music they enjoy than to hop on the bandwagon & try to be the flavor of the month.
