Agalloch -- Baltimore, MD -- March 21st, 2011
Fantastic performance. Setlist same as previous:
They Escaped the Weight of Darkness [tape]
Into the Painted Grey
The Watcher's Monolith
Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor
Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires
Our Fortress Is Burning II
Dead Winter Days
In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion
So, less than 24 hours after a riveting performance by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, I find myself in Baltimore to see a post-whatever group with a bit more of a metal taste.
This was another of those shows were it didn't matter what the band played, it was simply fantastic. I did manage to once again stand near the most moronic of the crowds (PUT YOUR FUCKING IPHONES AWAY AND WATCH THE SHOW) but Agalloch killed it. I was struck by how much the frontman resembles Ross Dolan of the mighty Immolation, but that's irrelevant.
I was bummed at no ...Waves, but Falling Snow is almost as great of a song; and, again, it didn't matter at the end.
Agalloch's shirts were $20 (one long sleeve and one short), and CDs were $15. They also had a bunch of vinyls but I don't remember any specifics. Also some professional photo prints, according to my photographer companion.
