Coheed and Cambria, Concert Review and More

Concert Line up (11/14/07): Me Without You, Thrice, Brand New.
Me Without You- My impression of this band was all-over good. They actually have talent, and this takes their music to another level. Bands like this have an impressive quality of dedication that you don't see in
many bands with record labels.
The music itself, is what I would possibly categorize as majorly Indie Rock, with a little punk-ish alternative thrown in. Overall, they put on a good show.
Thrice- An ever-popular, and an older band that has had a number of hits in the past. Their performance was amazing, both lead singer and the guitarist were GREAT. The light show was awesome, and I would definitely suggest seeing them live.
Brand New-Brand New, if you don't already know the history behind them, are one of two bands that broke away from the popular band, Taking Back Sunday. (Which I love) Their music has a largely alternative sound, with a nice amount of harmony, and meaningful lyrics. They may border on religious themes in many of their songs, but I would not strictly categorize them as such. They actually sound better live, and the whole band seems to really have a love for music.

Concert line up (11/15/07): Fall of Troy, Clutch, Coheed and Cambria.
Fall of Troy- They were, in my opinion, newbie’s, and pretty much just like any other dime-a- dozen-skinny-dude-mediocre rock band. The only thing impressive about their performance was the excessive amount of phlegm produced by the lead singer.
Clutch- Although the music is not my cup of tea, I won't say they didn't have any talent. They did have some stage presence. I got the distinct feeling that the lead singer was a white supremacist, and that was something that negatively influenced my opinion of their music.
Coheed and Cambria- If you don't already know, I am a HUGE fan. All the guitarists are amazing, and the lead singer both plays and has a stunning voice! Their whole performance was great, from the lighting to the music, obviously. Lead singer, Claudio Sanchez is quite impressive live.
It made suffering through the previous bands well worth it.

Hi Heidi! Thanks for the comment. Man, it seems like forever ago that I did that... It was fun, but I was crazy nervous, kept stuttering.
Actually I haven't talked to Dave in a long time, think he's moved permanently into Second Life ; >

Have a good night!
