Agalloch -- Baltimore, MD -- March 21st, 2011

Fantastic performance. Setlist same as previous:

They Escaped the Weight of Darkness [tape]
Into the Painted Grey
Falling Snow
The Watcher's Monolith
Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor
Limbs
Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires
Our Fortress Is Burning II
~encore
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.
