Blackguard -- Frederick, MD -- August 24th, 2011
 
[B]BLACKGUARD [/B]played at [B]KRUG'S PLACE[/B] in [B]FREDERICK[/B], MD last night. Their one guitar player apparently has some illness going on so he had to sit out this leg of the tour (replaced by one of the dudes from [B]DESTROPHY[/B]).

Openers that we also saw part of were [B]SIXTEEN CYLINDER [/B](didn't catch any of the song names, girl growler and singer. They were OK.), [B]FALLEN MARTY[/B]R (they were kind of all over the place musically, did not like them. At least one song was from their myspace.). I think they both were locals. Blackguard had a pretty big merch booth. Got a CD that I didn't have of theirs, chatted with the other guitar player for a bit, he seemed pretty cool.

Crowd was about 50 people at most at the busiest part (I think a bunch of locals were there as it was something to do because only about 15-20 people were left when [B]Blackguard [/B]came on after midnight). Still, even some people didn't seem into it. I didn't understand. Whatever the case that is probably the closest show I've been to since [B]LA GUNS[/B] / [B]BULLETBOYS[/B] up in Gaithersburg

They played a rather short set list for headling :( But they sounded great for the most part. The singer (Paul) was very intense as always. After the show he seemed in a pretty good mood (the others time he seemed a bit... like I did not want to bother him).

It was the first time I've been to [B]KRUG'S PLACE [/B]so I was not sure what to expect. It was a small place with surprisingly good sound. Pretty clear, loud enough to be enjoyable but not so loud that my ears were ringing. I didn't use earplugs when I was expecting to. As small as the place was, some pits broke out while the locals were there and a couple rather small ones broke out during [B]BLACKGUARD[/B], albeit maybe a little hesitantly.
Broke my neck during Wastelands. I imagine they will have about the same set on Saturday @ [B]JAXX[/B] when they play with [B]KAMELOT[/B]

7 song headlining set? I'd only accept that from Godspeed or Sleep.

Blackguard does put on a good live show, I can't deny that.

Why do I get the feeling if Sabbath does get together Blackguard probably ends up getting on there somehow since they are able to whore themselves on every other cool tour.

Sabbath = way too mainstream for the mighty BG.

I hope Blackguard does a lot more headlining tours in the future, so I don't have to see them opening on the tours that I go to.

I saw them headline at this shitty ass bar a few months back. Pretty much the same story as you. 60 - 70 people there for the locals then everyone bailed leaving maybe 15 of us to watch Blackguard. They didn't even have a stage so we started a mosh pit in front of the guitarists standing spot.

^Sounds like the 2 Blackguard headlining shows they are doing in Minnesota and Wisconsin soon.

Both shows are a little over an hour from me. I would go if I didn't have so many other shows I'm seeing.
