Ludicra -- Allston, MA -- April 17th, 2010

Tour: Decancellation Tour
Town / Venue: Allston, MA / O’Brien’s Pub
Ludicra Setlist adapted from: http://picasaweb.google.com/Atanamar...37479954385010

O’Brien’s Pub is a tiny venue that only allows standing room for 75 people or so. While it’s very nice to be up close & personal with the bands, it’s also harder to get a small crowd revved up. Fortunately I found a few other kinesthetic metal movers I recognized. We headbang too much for the typical Black Metal fan.

Doors opened at 2 and the show started at 3. While waiting, I chatted with frontwoman Laurie, who vaguely recognized me as “the bathroom girl” from Scion Rock Fest ~sighs~. She was very amicable and apologized about twenty times for the performance they were about to do. Apparently every member of Ludicra was sick except one. The irony was that the healthiest person was John Cobbett, who had just barely reunited with the tour following a burst appendix.

Krallice went on a 3 o’clock. Their music was peaceful and melodic. My music-teacher friend who I brought with me kept saying “It’s like folk music sped up and flashier.” I’m not fully sure I agree, but it was lovely. The only issue I had is that their music is constant sound, with very little rise and fall of instrumentation. Still, I wouldn’t mind seeing them open again.

Ludicra was next, and they destroyed like always. Despite being ill, Laurie screamed into the microphone like the banshee she is, flailing and stomping around like a pissed off mental patient. She'll seriously do anything, including crawling around and laying down on the floor whilst still screaming. O’Brien’s was a great venue for them to perform at, as their guitars came through crystal clear. It was especially nice to see John back, healthy, and, y’know, not dead.

This may have been the setlist (it’s actually from a performance a few nights later). I can only truly guarantee Stagnant Pond and In Stable’s positions.

Stagnant Pond
In Stable
One-Thousand Wolves? (may not be true)
Veils
Larger Silence
Awake to Grey?

Tombs was up last, and the crowd thinned out quite a bit for them. Perhaps it was because I had just experienced Ludicra, but I wasn’t all that excited by them. I will say, however, that their drummer is awesome.

Overall, a great time, and I only wish that there were more 3 PM shows out there. Talk about convenient!

Acquired: Ludicra shirt for $10
The Tenant (Ludicra’s new CD) for $10

No Clean White Void, eh? That's easily my favorite on the new record, but that's still cool. I'd like to see Ludicra one o' these days.

You need to check out Made Out of Babies. Seriously.

Yeah, that's a purty good tune. I'm kinda partial to "A Larger Silence" myself.

Tombs has to get more interesting before the crowds will start sticking around.

I can accept that you might be right about that, since I've not seen them live yet. I like the idea of Tombs, but something about the execution of their stuff on album just leaves me a little underwhelmed.

Is that the band with the Julie Christmas chick you're always on about?

I had moved to the back of the room by that point, so I saw very little. They may be better than I though, but anyone that was playing directly after Ludicra was going to pale in my opinion. It's probably a good thing that the bands are switching their order around throughout the tour.

... wait... I can't be the only one on this board to have actually seen Ludicra, can I?

I just realized that I'm confusing Tombs with Coffins. I've done that before.

Carry on.

Yeah I heard the album and thought meh. It grew on my but I'm still not a fan of the newest one.

I went to see Isis and Tombs were opening and they were really good. The drummer was going insane and kept standing up and had so much energy...he broke like 5 drum sticks and was the star of the show. The vocals, music, and everything was just so much better live.

Yup.

I met some more musicians in other bands who know her at the Caspian / Red Sparowes show last Sunday, and every time I do that, people keep confirming to me that she is totally off her rocker (but in a good way ). I've seen them live, and she is one crazy broad. I was actually intimidated to try and meet her after their set (not that she was around anyway - their guitar player told me she has to decompress for like thirty minutes after a set...).

Between B-Rad and Cameron and me, yeah, but not necessarily the whole board. I'm pretty sure Addi has seen them, for instance. He's a big Ludicra fan.
