However, I didn't care for the fact that played ALL of the Resistance (aside from I Belong To You) and NONE of Showbiz. I also thought that Passion Pit, even though they're a new band with only one album, really showed zero enthusiasm for the event. The only thing they did was let their singer stumble around the stage as if he was drunk.

Muse, though,
I wish they actually did play all of the TR if it meant we got to see part 2 and part 3 of Exo-genesis (despite the chance of that happening is close to none). Shame about no SB though . Lol and I actually really liked Passion Pit's set, even if I wasn't even able to see them. It was probably the absolute wrong crowd for them though.

And Helsinki jam is ****ing ace.

I found out Dimmu Borgir is playing in town the day after Thanksgiving so I'm definitely going to that. Enslaved is also touring with them so it'll be a chance to see them, a feat none of my other metalhead friends can claim ownership to. While I'm not the biggest Dimmu Borgir fan it's not often a decent metal band comes to Reno, usually we just get washed up post-grunge acts or annoying metalcore bands, so any chance to see some real Scandinavian metal is one to take.

I'm also not a big Dimmu fan but i've seen them live and enjoyed it. It was a decent show. And Enslaved are playing with them? I would say thats more than worth it.

Melvins come like twice every year so seeing them is pretty easier, but for most shows you have to travel to Sacramento or San Francisco for some of the bigger ones.

A lot of the older bands like to come, I know Possessed came not too long ago and are coming back in November and Deicide also came last year around the same time as In Flames, but other than that it's a cavalcade of mediocrity.

I just got back from the Swans show and the verdict is in: it was fucking fantastic! Almost everything they played was their older, louder stuff, and though I've always preferred their later work, seeing the old stuff live gave me a whole new appreciation for it. In person it sounds like a goddamn freight train. Also, I never really noticed before but it's surprisingly groove-based. You really get locked in watching it being performed.
