The thing is, that fest had been like 7 amazing bands all playing incredible sets before Mastodon. Baroness tore through their flawless set without saying a word, and High on Fire obliterated their hometown- the show was in Oakland, and I think it still might be one of the best times I've ever seen them. All Mastodon had to do was do their thing and it would have been gravy, but Brent threw a bitchfit and derailed it. That, combined with the fact that Mastodon were just not a very strong live band at the time, just left a really bad taste in everyone's mouth after the show.
Baroness played one of the best sets I've ever seen at that show and only got 30-40 minutes, which was a shame. For some reason people on the forum were throwing the idea of Baizley replacing Brent in Mastodon
