Regardless, that's about as good a setlist as you'll see from Mastodon; great selections from all albums plus the new album. I love the band, and I've seen them and met them before. Maybe I'll see them again...(one day)
I think they were doing like a VIP thing because I got there and Red Fang was soundchecking because they weren't letting anyone in yet, but when I got in there was already a good crowd of people on the floor. There was NO ONE there at the time doors opened.
And from where I was standing I didn't see too many core-kid douches. A good amount of moshing for DEP and then it never really stopped during Mastodon!
