so no video tonight or my head might fall off from the rock. i just returned from seeing mastodon at the roseland ballroom and it was friggin incredible!
*edit* - found a video of the first song of the night!!!
show: mastodon & against me!
observed: mastodon and against me both had different kinds of energy, but both had lots of it!
the bassist from against me had a penchant for lifting his bass in the air as he held a note, pretty nice move!
mastodon does a lot of fancy fingerwork, so it's harder to move, but they definitely know how to thrash! super wide stance, super confident!
the pit was crazy too! there was a totally jacked blind guy with white cane, being led by a girl. he laid into people like nobody's business with unrivaled intensity. rocking transcends hardship and disability. a point made by zac the magnet monro, as transcribed by bjorn turoque in "to air is human." proven last night.
