An unusual week with three concerts on tap.
Last night I caught a Genesis tribute band called The Musical Box, who played a note-perfect version of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Visually not the same as seeing Peter Gabriel and crew but sound-wise they were really good.
Tonight a bit more prog-metal with Dream Theater on tap followed on Thursday by an up and coming heavy metal band called Mastodon. The last two Mastodon albums (Crack The Skye, The Hunter) have garnered quite a bit of critical acclaim.
Glad to see another forum member into the heavier stuff. We are few and far between!
It's funny but as I get older I find I am more interested in some of the heavier music. Mastodon in particular I didn't even know of until about a year ago.
Last night's Dream Theater show was outstanding except for the "no cameras" policy, which was strictly enforced. Trivium were talented enough but had a terrible "mix" while DT were exceptional from beginning to end.
