Scale the Summit -- Houston, TX -- January 27th, 2012

so this is the first headlining tour Scale the Summit has done and I feel privileged to be a part of their first official show on this tour!

I think that there was a mention that there was going to be another band (the elitist?) that was supposed to be there, and people were looking for to seeing them; however, there was not a band by that name on this tour (at the very least not yet).
There were 3 opening bands and for the life of me I cannot remember what they were called! one was indie, another thrash influenced (my fave of course) and the other what seemed to me like a clone of fallout boy.

anyway...

Scale the Summit was truly amazing and I wonder how they can keep up that intensity for 80 minutes, but they did it wonderfully. If you can go to this tour, please do, support this band because they deserve it.

setlist is as follows (recognized most of the songs and took a pic of their setlist so it's 100% correct)

Colossal
Bloom
Dunes
Gallows
Redwoods (new bonus track from The Collective)
Rode in on Horseback
Black Hills
Crossing the Ocean
Levitated
Sargasso Sea
Penguins in Flight
Whales
The Great Plains
Secret Earth
Origin of Species

Encore:

Giants

My head is still spinning from the awesomeness I witnessed. I also bought a Remo drumhead with all of the members' signatures (made sense to get this since I'm a drummer). The merch is essentially the same from the stuff they have online. I was rather bummed that the tour shirt did not have any tour dates on the back of them, thus this was the main reason why I didn't get a shirt tonight.

Once again, make sure to attend this tour and support a dedicated band such as this one \m/

Such a killer setlist. Very, very close to the setlist I picked out when they were holding votes.

IT was suppose to be coming to Minnesota, but Christ Letchford told me, that not a single venue in Minneapolis or St. Paul was available on the date they need to tour here. Shitty but what are you gonna do?

Glad you had a good time!

Oh my god, and I just noticed Black Hills is on there. The only song off of the collective I care about at this point. Dat set! I wouldve liked a couple more off Carving Desert Canyons, but whatever.

The only song that didn't get picked from my list was Drifting Figures. And I can't even complain, Chris chose everything else I picked.

the life of a student has its perks, but a downfall is that you have to skip some quality shows because of class... I'm glad to hear that you will be attending this one. I have recently heard that they are currently having touring van problems again. I remember being quite disappointed when they failed to show at the summer slaughter survivors tour in July when they were supposed to be in Austin. I know it is easier said than done, but maybe get another, more reliable, van?? Odd that I was being paranoid of them not being able to show up to the Houston show, but then I thought: "Hey aren't they from Houston anyway?!? If anything, they can get some of their friends or family members to help them out"
. lol
