Hed PE -- Springfield, VA -- November 2nd, 2011

So I ventured to Jaxx with some friends to see Hed PE headline for the 1st time in many years. My friends Rebel Inc. were opening along with Slaine from La Coka Nostra and some local openers.

I've stated this before but I have to say it again, Jaxx sucks. Are there other venues in other towns that are all ages but you can only drink in designated spots? If anything the kids should be put in a f'n designated area. I'll never understand that place. 2 bouncers guard the floor and merch area. What a waste of money and manpower.

So we get there early and hang with the guys from Rebel Inc. We find out they're playing 3rd with 2 hip-hop openers. I'm cool with that.

The 1st opener was a guy with an apple computer and a mic. He played 20 min and was too loud and the beats were too low. The next band was a 12 person rap group. They had different members for every song and it was hard not to just laugh at them. 4 of them were sporting the hipster glasses and one dude rips his shirt off and with his pinky out on the mic keeps pushing his glasses back on his face with his thumb. Later he comes up to the girl with us and looks like he's about to spit game and adjust his glasses and we both crack up laughing. Maybe you had to be there but in all my years of going to shows they were the worst band I've ever seen. Ever!

Rebel Inc. were up next and they KILLED it! Their older stuff is very Rage Against the Machine-ish and the new songs they played had a real Clutch vibe and groove to them. RATM + Clutch = Awesomeness! Check these guys out if they come to your town. I'm going to see them again Monday night and am fired up!

Next was Slaine and the crowd was not into him at all. He was ok for what he does, worlds better than the 2 hip-hop openers but it was very cliche and forgettable.

Next up was Hed. I was hoping to get a great 90 min set but they did a little over an hour and Jared actually cut the rants down some but when they cut Killing Time in half I knew I was going to be pissed when he started ranting about Draconian Reptilians and I was. They still played a bunch of cool stuff even though they cut some of my favorite songs in half it was cool to hear them again.

Hed PE

Sophia (new version)
Truth Rising
Live or Die Free
Not Ded Yet
Game Over
White House
The Truth
Killing Time
Raise Hell
Firsty
Let's Ride
Don't Tread On Me/Suffa
Peer Pressure X3
Takeover/Represent
Is This Love?
Bartender
CBC
Renegade

I might be missing 1 new one. I have a new camera and took some video so I'll see how it turned out. Jared brought his kid out for Is This Love which was cool. He sings the shit outta that song. Normally I'd hate to hear a cover with so many great Hed songs but it works for some reason. Overall a fun show. This is like my 10th time seeing them and unless they come to Baltimore again, it'll be my last. One of my favorite live bands I just wish they mixed it up and played longer setlists, especially when headlining.

I used to really like Jaxx but I haven't been there since 2009 I think.

It looks like it's ready to close up. They took out some of the seats/tables in the outter bar area and the place just looks stripped down overall. It's so weird to have 3 areas guarded by bouncers. The outter bar area is also guarded. That makes no sense to me, they have to be able to come up with a better system than that.

It was the smallest crowd ever at a Hed show. I saw them 6-8 months ago with Mushroomhead and it was packed wall to wall. No one really knows who Slaine is and I think that hurts too. There was maybe 200 people.

Also I forgot to mention before the show Jared posted on their facebook site they they needed green trees and to see the dude at the merch booth. Too funny!

I just got to the show, and it's hard to tell what the crowd is like. The venue is a restaurant that a lot of people like to eat at around here. I see about ten people that look like they're definitely here for the show, but they might be local openers...., I'm the only person standing in the stage area, got center "rail," needless to say haha

For some reason, really shitty 90s nu-metal bands are trying to stay relevant. Like shit, didn't Ill Nino tour last year?

Is that the Van Halen song 'is This Love?' ?

I was just curious at the crowd (and attendance) these guys brought to Jaxx
