It is possible the songs may be out of order in the middle of the setlist.
Ponykiller was a good band, just not a good fit for this show. They sounded good live.
Haarp is doom with lots of screaming. The crowd liked the band at first but it became boring fast.
Down came out and sounded better than ever. I have seen them 12 times and this is about as good as I have ever seen them. The energy was awesome, the sound was awesome. The band was in good spirits up until everyone started chanting for COC over and over after every few songs. Philip was a bit ill about it and Pepper didn't seem to like it much either. They kept playing a riff from Animosity era COC when the crowd would start in. Kirk finally played Albatross with Philip singing but it only lasted for a minute. The entire band seemed to be in a great mood aside from dealing with the idiots chanting COC a few times through out the show. The band was a well oiled machine tonight and the crowd was entertaining as well. Probably the best pits I have ever seen at a Down show so far. Philip stopped a song one time to tell the crowd they kicked ass instead of starting it over with the, "I'm watching you like a hawk" line he is famous for.
I also attended the Meet N Greet and sound check. The sound check was awesome as the band ran through Swan Song and a Animosity era COC song and a few other things. It was a good time and if you have the $ it is well worth it for you to get the VIP package if you are a fan of Down.
It was a great show, a good time and fun to see Down again. Pat Bruder from Crowbar is a killer bassist and fills in nicely in place of Rex Brown. Hopefully Pat will be the choice to be the permanent member in place of Rex now that he has left the band.
Sounds awesome man. Wish I could have made it, I had to work and I have been sick. Next time for sure.
Hail The Leaf would be a sweet opener, nice review.
This is the first time I've seen you make a thread/post that doesn't involve upcoming news info or random links to your Blog site.
I have several concert reviews on here. I go to anywhere between 5 to 15 concerts per year however I do not review all of them on this site.

Eh, at least they weren't shouting for Pantera songs...
Lol well after the COC chants some idiot yelled, "Play I'm Broken!"
If any of you guys go to shows in the St. Louis, MO, Nashville, TN or Louisville/Lexington KY areas look for me. I am usually there with my gf looking for cool people to kick it with during the show. Here is a pic of us:
Damn your GF looks pretty good. lol
Phil was damn near doing full-on stand-up when i saw them Sat. in Jersey. He had everyone laughing all night. Nice to see everyone so healthy, sober & in good spirits. What a great band.
damn, just read this on theprp:
A recent interview conducted with Down guitarist Pepper Keenan by the Delcotimes.com has shed some light on bassist Rex Brown‘s absence from the bands recent spat of touring. When asked about Brown not touring with the band, Keenan had the following to offer:
“Rex is not gonna be with us. He’s got things he needs to deal with, and we gave him an ultimatum and he’s trying to work things out. We’ve got Pat (Bruders) from Crowbar playing bass, and he’s ass-kickin’ in the same way. He plays with his fingers — which is really cool; he’s got the whole Geezer Butler thing going on.”
When quizzed if Brown was still an active member of the band, Keenan merely offered:
“I don’t know what to really say on that; he’s not out of the band, but he’s not playing with us live.”
