So here's what I have to say...
I'm a pro-Hunter guy and I like most of the songs, but it's really disappointing that they're sort of abandoning their early material like Baroness.
I would hope they're smarter than making this their Mayhem set (what's the purpose of playing to a new audience if you're not playing most of your signature songs?).
I like hearing Thickening and ending with The Sparrow, but not in a 45 minute set.
And of all the songs to leave out, they don't play Curl of the Burl?
Worth mentioning that it was a shock to see Brent with a shaved head again, Troy sang half of Stargasm and is starting to go grey (actually looks badass, but weird watching a band go into their 40s
), and Matt Pike literally looks pregnant.
All said and done, even though it was a little bit of a hassle to make sure we got in, it was free.
I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
Hot Lunch 7/10 (only caught half the set)
