Great show, much better than in 2011. John and Don brought the energy and intensity like crazy. I loved that they did the slow clean part to Shadow. They didn't do it in 2011 and it gave me chills it was so good this time. You Were But a Ghost was great to hear too as that was the song that got me into Agalloch in the first place. Kneel To the Cross was really cool and got a really good crowd response and Bloodbirds was a perfect way to end the set. John's vocals were amazing on that one.

It was an early show (ended before 9) and John didn't know how much time they had so that's why they walked off so early and did such a long encore. Honestly I think they still had at least another 15 minutes to play according to what the club told me so I am kinda bummed they didn't do maybe 2 more songs. I would have loved to hear Not Unlike The Waves. I picked up the new EP on LP and CD and my girlfriend bought me the gray Fasutian t shirt which is pretty awesome.

Afterwards I saw Don just standing in the pit area chilling. I went up to him to tell him how I appreciated the awesome performance and he was really cool. He saw my 7th Son tour shirt and we started talking Maiden. He said they'll be in California the same day as Maiden so the other guys will be lucky if he shows up to the Agalloch show. He's another person that thinks it's a total bummer they aren't doing Infinite Dreams this tour haha. Got my picture with him, turned out kinda crappy because it was just a camera phone but it's still cool.

Oh, and the incense they burned was incredible. Smelled like a pine forest.

Go see this tour if you can.
