To add to seeing Dillenger Escape Plan and Fake Problems in December I'll see Passafire and The Expendables along with 3 other bands I've never heard of in January.

Just came home from seeing Dream Theater (Sydney - 05/12/09)...


AMAZING show, like always (it's only the 2nd time I've seen them). It's funny though... 2 years ago it was An Evening With Dream Theater and this year it wasn't but it felt like a better show, strange? The set was great. Something unusual though - The show hadn't even started yet and we had the pleasure of hearing an unnamed female vocalist singing acoustic renditions of 'As I Am' and 'Pull Me Under' ...hmm weird? (she was great too). Every person in the band had their special spotlight moments. Portnoy continued drumming through a song, left his seat and tapped along in front of his kit to sit back down. It was a great moment to see. I was like 'oh he is drumming the crap out of anything he can hahaha'. Petrucci was God-like throughout but thats a given. I was suprised with the amount of stage presence given to Rudess. He absolutely blew me away. Myung was amazing as ever, the crowd went ballistic whenever he took front and center. Finally... LaBrie delivered. In a BIG way. All the criticism he deals with is bull**** in my eyes. The closing / encore was predictably 'The Count Of Tuscany' and everyone was so into it. It was very emotional. FANTASTIC.

Pain Of Salvation opened for them and they kicked some serious ass although I was disappointed with the lack of support for them down under. Sure there were quite a few people still screaming and having fun and I know they were there for DT but PoS still go off and were just as good as DT... okay I dunno about that, maybe I just have a soft spot for them, lol

btw 'The Count Of Tuscany' is now officially my favourite DT song.

Sunn O))) and Skullflower tomorrow in one of the finest venues i have ever been to. This would be a brutal gig anyway, add in the exceptional acoustics of The Sage in Gateshead and this could very well leave me deaf.

I think Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros on Saturday is a sure thing, I'm excited to see them again. My fingers are crossed for Against Me! on the 20th and Cold War Kids at the end of January.

Enjoy seeing BTBAM. They're excellent live from what I've seen. That's gonna be a hell of a show. I don't care for August Burns Red, though.

Dillinger's on tour? ****, I'm gonna have to look into that. Passafire's really good, too.

I've recently had a huge tiff with a ticket vendor regarding one of my tickets for Modest Mouse, this ticket was bought separately from the other 3 and didnt look like it was going to come due to their complete failure at being human beings, meaning i'd have to give my ticket to the friend missing one out of guilt. After waiting 20 minutes on the phone today to the tune of some utterly piss poor 'on hold music' i was told the ticket would be with me by the end of the week. Suddenly that music sounded like angels rubbing euphoria into my temples.


HAPPY DAYS.

Ive had similar bust ups with vendors in the past. It isnt fun.

I went to see Sunn O))) last night and it may be just be the most stunning experience of my life, gig wise.

I have Hawkwind and Arthur Brown soon too, which should be awesome.
