The Horrors @ The Corner Hotel (2010-01-27)

I'd only heard a few Horrors songs that Tab had put on some mix's for me and I went to this show with her so I wasn't really over excited about it. I walked away from it however a big fan. They put on a really good show. New Ice Age and Count In Fives were my two highlights of the night. But all the songs impressed me. I wasn't really bored at any point in the show.
It was great to be back in a more intimate crowd after the previous two weeks worth of festivals and hall shows. I'm really happy with the sound on this one. The Corner always provides me with good sounding recordings. Love that place.

Full Scale Revolution @ The Evelyn (2010-01-09)

I never thought I'd get a chance to see Full Scale (Revolution) but after weeks of disappointment at Mammal's break up it finally happened. I thought they would be rough and out of practice but the guys really pulled it together playing an epic set. The amount of energy in the room was incredible. Every punter was loving it.
Zeke once again took control when he aborted Billy mid song due to some idiot getting on stage trying to find another guy who I assume he wanted to bash. He set the guys in their place and as a treat to us requested the song be started again.
I'm surprised that we got 2 tracks off the FSD album. I had never heard it but the change in sound is very noticeable. They were really good live and I'll be getting a copy of the CD soon.
As predicted Party Political was the last song played and it went off. The crowd went nuts for an encore for at least 5 minutes even though the band was already mingling with everyone. I didn't care though. I don't think an encore would have topped Party Political's radness.
While I loved the show and am glad to have experienced FS(R) live I don't think I will be as devoted to them as I was Mammal. Mammal just had that something which I couldn't dismiss and always drew me in.
