Dropdead -- Scottsdale, AZ -- August 30th, 2014

I almost didn't make this one. I spent most of the day trying to get across town on the bus, but I kept missing connections and getting stuck. I had actually given up and was heading home, when I found out a friend who doesn't normally go to shows was driving out there. As luck would have it, I was on the bus about a block from his house!

The first two bands were locals that I hadn't heard called Vile Punishment and Triage. They must have both played insanely short sets, because we weren't especially late for the show but they were both done by the time we walked in the door. With the show running way ahead of schedule, Landmine Marathon took their time setting up and soundchecking. It was a good thing they did, because the venue filled up quite a bit during the wait.

This was Landmine Marathon's first hometown show in nearly two years, the last being current vocalist Krysta Martinez's debut. This lineup has really gelled since then, this was one of the tightest sets I've ever seen them play! The crowd really fed off the energy onstage, the moshpit wound up obliterating the barrier that was supposed to separate the all ages and 21+ sections. People were stagediving, crowdsurfing, and just generally having a great time! It's always awesome to see a friend's band play a killer show and get a great crowd reaction, especially in a city like Phoenix that isn't exactly renowned for supporting its local scene.

Landmine Marathon setlist

1. Shadows Fed to Tyrants
2. Bile Towers
3. Three Snake Leaves
4. Exist
5. Beaten and Left Blind
6. Morbidity
7. Dead Horses
8. Red Days
9. Rise With the Tide

After Landmine, we headed back to the bar and waited for the legendary Dropdead. I remember seeing them play a bowling alley back in 1998, and had always thought that would be my one and only chance to see them. They didn't seem very active in the years that followed. A split 7" would come out every once in awhile, but I don't seem to recall them touring much. Seems like their appearance at MDF back in 2011 kind of revitalized the band, because I've managed to see them 3 times in the years since then.

After a short changeover, Dropdead hit the stage with their classic "Hopeless," and it was chaos from there on out. The barrier had been put back up between bands, only to be annihilated yet again, and the stream of stagedivers seemed neverending. The overall vibe in the room was undeniably positive, and Bob Otis remarked several times how awesome it was to see so many different people come together. It was truly awesome. The show was over way too quickly, I could have listened to another 30 songs!

Dropdead setlist

1. Hopeless
2. Protest
3. Scream at the Wall
4. Control
5. New Song
6. Idiot Icon
7. Part II
8. I Will Stand
9. Army of Hate
10. Herd
11. New World Slaughter
12. Sheep
13. Belly Full of Lies
14. Requiem
15. Bosnia
16. Nazi Atrocities
17. You Have a Voice
18. Bullshit Tradition
19. At the Cost of an Animal
20. Unjustified Murder

I'm fairly certain the setlist is mostly in order, I got it right off the one on stage. The only one I'm not 100% sure of is "Scream at the Wall." It wasn't on the setlist, but I know they played it, so it may have been later in the show. Also, I'm fairly certain that the "new song" listed was one of the tracks off their new split with Brainoil, but I'm not sure which one. Overall this was one of the best shows I've seen in awhile. It was great to see a band that I've loved since I was a kid still kicking ass after all these years!
