Animals As Leaders -- Detroit, MI -- March 6th, 2014
I got there late and missed the first band called Chon. [B]Navene K[/B] was next. He's Animals As Leaders' previous drummer. He was nuts! I didn't think I'd enjoy listening to a drummer play along w/ techno beats for 30 minutes, but he was incredible!

[B]After The Burial[/B] played next. They're always great live. I was just as excited to see them as Animals As Leaders. They opened their set w/ "A Wolf Amongst Ravens." "Bezerker" had the circle pit going as usual. I had never heard the new song "Pennyweight" live before. That was cool, but I really wanted to hear "Virga." That's my favorite song off their new record. Oh well. Maybe next time. I think their set was cut short because their singer Anthony looked surprised when he said they had one song left. The crowd was bummed about that, but they rocked out their last song as hard as possible. That was definitely the highlight of their set.

A Wolf Amongst Ravens
My Frailty
Your Troubles Will Cease & Fortune Will Smile Upon You

[B]Animals As Leaders[/B] headlined. This was my 6th time seeing them, but FINALLY I got to see them as the headliner. Woo hoo! Their musicianship is unmatched, and as always their video screens added a lot to the show. "Temting Time" was one of the highlights of their set, especially the jam at the end. You could tell the band was so into it, and that was just one of those concert moments where everyone in the building was loving it all at the same moment. They have a new CD coming out March 25th. Run, don't walk, to go buy it. Their new stuff keeps getting better & better. The new song "Physical Education" was probably the highlight of the entire night. After playing "CAFO" on the encore, Tosin just gave the crowd the peace sign, and the band walked off stage. It's hard to put into words how amazing an Animals As Leaders show is. I wouldn't do it justice. Just go check it out for yourself.

I wish just once, AAL would play Soraya :/

Kinda wish AtB would headline for once. Their sets are way too short.

AtB's been playing Anti-Pattern too, so I don't know why they got cut.

Even though they should be playing Neo Seoul.

ATB's set was definitely cut short. They've also been playing "A Steady Decline, "Anti-Pattern" and "Aspiration" on this tour, at least according to setlist.fm, but I always take that site w/ a grain of salt. I think AAL's set was cut short by a song or 2 as well. The venue must've had a hard curfew of 11pm b/c the show ended at 10:55. Still a great show, though. I have seen ATB headline once, on the CRUSH EM ALL II tour in 2011 w/ Veil of Maya, Misery Signals, Structures & Within The Ruins.

I really should've went to this shit in Boston last Monday :bouville:

I am interviewing AAL ATB and Veil Of Maya tomorrow, both tours are playing tomorrow at the same venue for a festival type show.

It should be a great time, it's my first interviews since September.

What site do you interview for?

I caught the show in Boston. That was one of the best performances I have ever seen from Animals As Leaders, and Physical Education was easily the best song of the night. I was disappointed by the fact that The Price of Everything and Behaving Badly were put together into a medley and not full songs, but at least there was something off the first album that wasn't Tempting Time/CAFO.

[QUOTE=TheNobleFaceHumper;561883]What site do you interview for?[/QUOTE]

My own. It's for my radio show and I post it on youtube as well. My girlfriend just bought a fancy new camera so I can get better quality video now for the interviews for the first time tomorrow, and I got an awesome Tascam audio recorder so everything comes out clear as a bell.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 11:18 AM.
