Oh, wait… I just realized you're from Atlanta. I doubt I'm telling you anything you don't already know.
The venue was nice. I liked the town itself more than the venue though. But man it was packed. I had to leave my spot once to go to the bathroom (during 9-15-00/The Albanian, another reason I'm not sure exactly what exactly they played during those six or seven minutes), and it took me forever to push back through the crowd to retain my spot. The staff was cool it seemed. After the show when Sophie and Mauro and their drummers were breaking down their equipment, one dude about got kicked out by a stage guard for touching a pedal. It was pretty humorous.
Haha yeah, Athens is a great town and obviously famous for its awesome music scene. Though, I was talking to a metalhead at a record store when I was there and he said that they don't have much of a metal scene, at all.
Oh well, like you said Atlanta is close, and I can finally expand my music tastes.
They do seem to be pretty popular for post-rock/post-metal though. Caspian played there that Friday I was there, and Isis played one of their few farewell shows there.
