Painting the Wiltern Brown
Opening up with Exacty Where I’m At, then following with Don’t Get 2 Close; they played probably five songs before acknowledging the crowd whatsoever. The Let’s dance Cover was so on point, it totally blew my mind. Deaner shouts out “We have a special guest tonight . . . Mr. David Bowie!” He looked off stage, “No, it’s cool. I’ll sing it. I was completely suprised when the started playing Push Th’ Little Daisies, I’ve never seen it and didn’t expect the Beavis and Butthead endorsed number. The next cover was Ace Of Spades with Dave on vocals, perfection again. They closed with Emerson, Lake and Palmer’s Lucky Man, with Glenn on mic, glory again. I’m always really excited for the covers, they’re new every time, whilst still familiar and phenomenal.
Another great show, good solos on every song. The Wiltern, sold out, elbow to elbow, without a support album even. I could have used some more really fucked up 20+ minute covers, but I guess I’ll have to wait another two years until they come back. Two hour set, with about a 15 minute encore. There were a lot of songs that I wished they played, though most of that list I’ve seen, so it worked out to be a pretty fresh set. I missed out on tickets, so bought some highly inflated ones, it had to be done; worth it.
I’m so grateful for the quality these little video recording devices have achieved. Finally decent mics!
