Venue: The Grog Shop
I've been a fan of COC for 18 years and this was the first time I've been able to see them live. I got Technocracy when I was 12 and was immediately hooked on their hardcore punk stuff. One thing I never thought I'd get to do in my life would be to mosh and sing to "Technocracy" with the three piece version of the band, but it finally happened!!
A Storm of Light opened the show. They were fucking intense! This is Josh Graham from Neurosis' side project. Cool visuals and some of the heaviest riffs I've heard live. I grabbed a vinyl from them after the show.
Next was Valient Thorr. I had only heard of them, but never knew what they sounded like. They were fun as hell and really knew how to shred.
Torche was the last opener. Again, I had only heard of them, but never knew what they sounded like. Awesome band as well.
Next up was Corrosion. They were awesome and capped off a great night.
