Mastodon -- Lexington, KY -- May 22nd, 2010
 
Valient Thorr were up first. I don't know anything that they played for sure except "Mask of Sanity," "Double Crossed," and "Tomorrow Police." They dedicated "Tomorrow Police" to Dio - "a man who lived for rock n' roll, which is how you'd ought to live" - which was nice.

Baroness were up next, and played arguably the best set of the night. I was psyched to get The Gnashing instead of War, Wisdom, & Rhyme, but I still would have liked more from Red Album and maybe even something off the EPs.
Setlist:
Bullhead's Psalm
The Sweetest Curse
Jake Leg
Isak
Ogeechee Hymnal
A Horse Called Golgotha
Swollen and Halo
The Gnashing

Between the Buried and Me really got the crowd going for the first time of the night. Their setlist was kinda weak and the sound was bad but it's BTBAM and they never disappoint. Fifth time seeing them and I guarantee a sixth.
Setlist:
Fossil Genera - A Feed From Cloud Mountain
Prequel to the Sequel
Backwards Marathon
Disease, Injury, Madness
Mordecai

Mastodon basically dominated. Brann, Troy, and Bill are a well-oiled unit, nay, an [I]unstoppable[/I] unit. Brent...was okay. He left the stage after every Crack the Skye song and was yelling at one point, and he was fine throughout the encore set until Blood and Thunder at which point he left the stage, but still played the song from wherever he was. So, his routine didn't affect the performances or the music - he sounded great on guitar and vocals. I just hate what a diva he's become, and I really do hope he gets fired and John Dyer Baizley pulls double duty. He absolutely DOMINATES the stage with Baroness. We'll see what happens from here, this was the last night of the tour. Now prepare to be jealous because we got some shit that I don't think any other cities got:
Setlist:
Oblivion
Divinations
Quintessence
The Czar
Ghost of Karelia
Crack the Skye
The Last Baron
--
Crusher Destroyer
Crystal Skull
I Am Ahab
Capillarian Crest
Circle of Cysquatch
Aqua Dementia
Iron Tusk
March of the Fire Ants
Blood and Thunder

Great show pound for pound. :fist:

1. Did you know the guy from Baroness took Bill's place when he was sick in St. Louis?

2. Baroness is so good live, I'm thinking that I should get the Blue album ASAP and that I'd probably like it more than the Red album.

3. How sexy is that live bass solo during Disease, Injury, Madness?

4. [SIZE="7"][I]EEEEYYYYESSS ALLLLL AROUND YOU
ENNNNNNNTERRRRR THE LABYRINTH
VIIIISIOOOONS OF THE HUNTED
BEEEEEWAAAAARE THE BIRCHMEN[/I][/SIZE]

1. I had heard that. That's why I'm suggesting it. :D
2. I think Red is a bit better but the Blue stuff came off SO GOOD live that I'm thinking I may need to reevaluate.
3. SO sexy. :lovedup:
4. :horns:

The fact that they stopped playing Ol Nessie makes the otherwise awesome 2nd set look shitty.

I heard (from Caleb and MAatt) that the pits got pretty violent. True?

Yeah, but it was REALLY good even without Nessie, so whatev.

[QUOTE=ChildrenofSodom;275135]I heard (from Caleb and MAatt) that the pits got pretty violent. True?[/QUOTE]

Nah, not excessively so. Lots of movement and squeezing and jostling for position, but no violence.

We got all those plus Nessie in Richmond.

It's a tough call both are great but after many listens and seeing the songs live, Red is still a bit better than Blue imho.

I think you guys got a nice Mastodon set even without Ol Nessie.
Seriously, Crusher Destroyer, I am Ahab, Iron Tusk and March of the Fire Ants does not a bad set make.

Ol Nessie is not that good to begin with.
