Clutch -- Cincinnati, OH -- July 9th, 2009

Great show, not that you should come to expect anything different out of the best rock n' roll crew on the planet.

Lionize opened. Tim Sult is their guitarist. They were pretty bluesy and tight but I couldn't help but be annoyed when their second to last song's main riff was NOTE-FOR-NOTE the main riff of Pantera's "I'm Broken". It's a badass riff, don't get me wrong, but plagiarism should be sneakier. The people behind me were singing "I'm Broken" over the band.

Next up were Baroness, second time I've seen them. They were fucking intense and better than the first time I saw them. John Baizley is really starting to look exactly like Pau Gasol. The security guard wouldn't give me the setlist (some other security guard subsequently gave it to someone else, oh well), but here's my best estimation:

Rays on Pinion
The Birthing
Isak
(new song, I think)
Red Sky
Rise
Wanderlust
Grad

Finally, out came Clutch, who blew every mind in the room. It was the fourth time they had done this to me and I was still speechless. See this fucking band if you like rock n' roll and having a good time. P.S.- Opener was weird but they pulled it together.
