I'm coming up from Raleigh for the show. I'll probably be the only nut there in shorts. I caught them this past weekend in Atlanta, looking forward to seeing them a couple more times before they head back across the Atlantic.

According to the 930 Club's site, the Warlocks are on at 8:50 pm and the Sisters at 10 pm. But you know how that goes.

I probably won't be there until after 9. And I for damn sure will not be in shorts! :P

I'll be there... hopefully up front (or very close), with a leather jacket sporting a Killing Joke logo somewhat similar to the Exorcism single cover

I hope for something that good on March 10th! WYDSM and Slept are songs I haven't heard on a bootleg yet. I wish my friend and I could record the show at Kool Haus. We have the means, but aren’t familiar with the venue and would rather play it safe. :innocent:

Anyway… I hope all of you had a great night!

I loved it, but I knew I would, having seen Andrew and company several times before. As mentioned, it was the standard set list with the switch from Neverland to Something Fast. Andy had some cool wardrobe changes, looking very stylish in his white suit jacket for the second encore. The crowd was too restrained...uncomfortably so. It was only when they played Dominion that you even knew the audience was there. Everyone sang along to Temple and Vision Thing, but by that time it was over. Too many new-ish tunes hurt this set and the people who only know The Sisters for their club hits were sorely disappointed. Andrew said something at the end but I didn't catch it (did anyone else?). Overall it was great and I'm ready for that new CD now...

Since it was my first live show, I wasn't sure what to expect, other than what I have read here. TDS, I totally agree with your assessment of the crowd. The upper tier looked completely bored!

I was impressed that the club was full full full! :D I was on the floor for the first half of the show, pretty close up I (I did look for you Rat Bastard!). The sound was not that great. The synth bass was LOUD, and normally that's cool but sometimes it almost drowned out Andrew.

I was also very impressed by the guitar guys (Ben and Chris?). They looked good, they sounded good, and they played with a lot of energy!

After a bit of moshing/pushy/shovey near where I was, I moved upstairs where the air and sound was much better.

I took some piccies but the ones that turned out well look exactly like the others I have seen here. The rest were lost in all the smoke!

I met Quasi Evil and the Mrs., but I couldn't find anyone else due to the large crowd!

Thanx for the nice thought, DrG!

Overall, it was a good performance and I am glad I went!

First off, I think that the sound, at least from where I was standing (I was at the very front, far left, in front of where the lead guitarist was most of the time) was crystal clear... far clearer than when I saw them at the same venue in 2000.

I rather like the new version of FALAA (which incorporates both the classic intro riff and the newer post-1996 riff into the song). The new live arrangement of Lucretia is really nice too, despite a toned-down bassline.

The new lead guitarist is *really* good.

I didn't catch what he said towards the end... but I did catch "Who wants my cold?" when he leaned in towards the crowd.

I drove from PA 2.5 hours to see these guys and it was worth every mile... Rat_Bastard, I was right behind you in the front left side of the stage. Direct from work, I was decked out in jeans and a sweater. Nice. I absolutely agree with you, though. The sound was on point.

This is my second time seeing these guys or this guy and his machine and two friends. Amazing. That's all I have to say. Tons better than the last show. And they were on time...

Maybe you should check your wardrobe. We're kidding, but you never know. :wink:
As much as I love Something fast, the Vegas version of Never land is just awesome. They should play both. And plize keep WYDSM in the set.

:von: looks so frail and fragile compared to Ben. But then he always does.
And Chris most definitely is a glittering love machine from above.

They are fantastic. :notworthy:

I especially like Chris Catalyst's "ELVIS IN VEGAS"-Outfit. Classy 8)
