High On Fire -- San Francisco, CA -- December 18th, 2008

I checked out the opening band, Drunk Horse, a couple days ago on myspace and pretty much dismissed them as another generic hard rock band. To be frank, I was wrong. Their overall sound and performance could be labeled generic, but the music was good, the music was loud... not to mention that the whole band was locked in for 45 minutes. I was very surprised that all four of the members kept perfect time, even in iffy changes and offbeat tempos that would make errors forgiveable. Their music took everything good about any other generic rock band and added harmonized guitar licks, vocals and wild drum fills. I'm not so hot on their recordings, but I definately recommend them live. They played from 9:15 to 10:ish.

High On Fire put on an awesome fucking show. Not much else to say. I got to talk to Matt Pike for a minute again, and I think that the world would be a better place if there were more dudes like him around. I ended up in the front and got a bass pick after the show. By the way, the Great American Music Hall is a pretty cool venue, but it's in the worst neighborhood this side of Locash. Peace to ADD

Setlist, same as last week:

Death Is This Communion
Commeth Down Hessian
To Cross the Bridge
Rumors of War/DII
Brother In The Wind
Waste of Tiamat

12/31 Lil B?
2/21 At the Gates
