Here are some quick reviews:
TesseracT:Anyone that is a TesseracT fan worried about Elliot Coleman as the vocalist should not be concerned. He did a great job. Hell, I actually like him a lot more than Dan. His clean vocals and screams are great. The band was tight and they were a lot heavier live. Very pleasantly surprised

The Red Chord: Killed as always. This was their first show in 6 months, but you couldn't tell. There were absolutley no signs of rust. Charn from Job For A Cowboy did a damn fine job filling and the setlist was fucking badass for a one-off show (Birdbath was an especially surprising and awesome inclusion).

Animals As Leaders:Watching Tosin Abasi play just leaves you in awe. That is pretty much all I have to say about their performance.

Cave In: I really didn't know what to expect considering that I don't listen to these guys and I had only heard about 1-2 songs of theirs going into last night. They were really diverse and good live. At times, they were like Converge. At others, they were like Thursday or Touche Amore. I am going to check them out further for sure, very enjoyable performance.

Between The Buried and Me: This was my 6th time seeing them and it was yet another flawless performance. They are pretty much always on top of their game. Their musicanship is beyond precise and Tommy Rodgers is still the best modern metal vocalist. Setlist was good (the medley was really cool and I was glad I finally got to see Mordecai live) and Blake Richardson's drum solo was amazing. I can't wait to see them for a 7th time next time they roll through Massachusetts.

TesseracT 8/10
The Red Chord 9/10
Animals As Leaders 8.5/10
Cave In 8/10
Between The Buried and Me 10/10
11/28 ABR/ETID
