First band was a Post-Rock band named Marriages. They have members of Red Sparrow and there was a bunch of people there to see em. Female fronted and loud. Not my thing. But they had a fan base.
Finally I get to see Black Metal/Shoegaze/Post Rock or has haters call em "Hipster Black Metal" Deafheaven once again. Like I said last time they aren't your typical BM band. Don't expect corpse paint,satanic lyrics or upside down crosses. These guys are unique. Instead of dressing like Immortal they actually look like Joy Division. It finally got crowded(the hipsters left for a bit when DNF was on). They went on stage. While trying to set up a drunk fan(who may have known them) was yelling stuff at the guitar player for wearing a Hate Forrest shirt(a National Socialist Black Metal band. In other words... a Nazi band). The guitar player was just laughing it off since the band has already gotten shit for that shirt before when they had toured the U.K. I assure you him or the other members are NOT raciest at all. After being a called a Nazi,singer George finally hit the stage and the lights turned off. With the long intro of Violet the singer held onto his mic stand(reminded me a lot of Ian Curtis) while rubbing his hands all over him self to get into the evil zone. He started to scream his ass off,as did I. The energy in the room was amazing as people where just yelling nonsense to him. I had my hand up screaming most of the time. He grabbed my hand in some point and we screamed nonsense at each other(Not gay at all). During Language Games I head banged my ass off and and I got the mic for a few seconds. George then flew on to the crowed and and we threw him back stage. He continued to sing his beautiful evil music while shouting at peoples faces. George once again threw himself to the crowed and we carried him for a minute. He got back and finished his set. After the show I told him how much I loved the show,the album,and the band. He thanked me and asked if i was the person upfront. He said he only see flashes with all the cameras. I got a free poster and waited for my ride. Deafheaven is truly a phenomenal band to see live. They only played 4 songs(each songs is 10 minutes, I usually listen to 40 second songs.).I loved it so much. If they come near you,you MUST see them. And you MUST listen to their album Roads To Judah(#3 album of 2011 according to me)and the Demo.. Amazing just amazing.
