As we were walking to the venue down 6th street we passed Nick Oliveri eating some street food and chatting with someone. I nodded to him, but wasn't going to approach the guy and bother him while he was getting some grub. We arrived at Stubbs about 45 minutes after the doors opened and MonstrO took the stage about 15 minutes later. The stuff of theirs that I had previously listened to seemed alright, but they were very convincing live. You could most definitely hear in the music that their front man used to be in Torche. After they wrapped up there was about 20 minutes until The Sword started and the hometown crowd had pretty much filled up Stubbs in anticipation. The Sword took the stage to a huge applause and they just ripped right into the music. A majority of the crowd was familiar with all their material so it was great to see most of Stubbs headbanging and singing along. For an opening set you really can't ask for a better set list and Sea of Spears was a treat.

Due to a miscommunication with my roommate I ended up with an extra ticket, so I went out to the street to get rid of my extra ticket before Kyuss started. I found an Australian guy and his girlfriend walking towards the box office, so I just asked for $15 and was glad that I got something back at least. When I got back in I grabbed a fresh beer with the cash and made way up towards the front to get a good view of Mr. Garcia and his bandmates. From the opening note of Spaceship Landing onward the whole place was a sea of meaty riffs, flailing arms, pot smoke, banging heads and big grins. They sounded great and whenever it felt like the set was coming to a lull they would bust into another song that would garner a big crowd reaction. Even the people I was with who were more familiar with The Sword than Kyuss were impressed and never got bored. After this show I can certainly say that Kyuss Lives!

Hey. I'll see you tonight at the Opeth show. It will be the first time seeing them and I'm sure it will be a treat.

Sucks I missed this show, but had already purchased tickets to see Incubus with my girlfriend. Also I miss out on Opeth since I have an exam tomorrow morning. I've always wanted to see Kyuss and I figured I'd never have a chance, and I missed it someday someday

Oh man, missing Kyuss for Incubus? You should have slapped your girlfriend and told her to stop being so damn lame!

did you just make an unintentional domestic abuse joke in a Nick Olivieri-related thread? awesome.

speaking of which, i wouldnt bother him while he's eating either.

hard to back this dude or the tour bc of all the bad stuff he's done. maybe one day he'll get his act together.

Opening with Spaceship Landing?
Looks like they're adding some more songs as the tour goes on like I thought they would.

I had my tickets before his recent shit went down; I think I might have reconsidered giving money to that fool, but it was a great show.

I would have not gone because of that, but it's almost Kyuss.

From the reviews I read from the Euro tour, it's only a snippet of Spaceship Landing. Still pretty cool though.

I don't think the setlist has been changing all that much throughout the tour, but rather people people haven't been able to identify every song from Welcome to Sky Valley since the band haven't been playing the suites as a whole. Just my theory though.
