S.O.A.D. ROCKED THE DOME!

SOAD was totally MEZMERIZING!
Ballkick and the_guy were at the SoaD show last night representing Wazee fans everywhere. They started out with BYOB and the crowd was on there feet and most stayed there till the last song played. I have been to allot of concerts I the past two years and SoaD had the most enthusiastic fans of any concert I've been to in recent memory. Most of the songs had a new intro than I was used to hearing but every song packed a punch that staggered even the 70-year-old lady that was sitting two rows in front of me.
The light show was superb. One of the best concerts I've ever seen.
Sound quality was "bang on."
The only song they didn't play that I wanted to hear was Old School Hollywood; on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give these guys a 9.5.
If you get a chance to see them,...............GO!

Mars Volta was Ok, got to say I thought I was in a time warp with them though.
I couldn't help but make the comparison to Santana. Lots of percussion and Latin beats. Most songs were 8 - 10 min each. Sounding like a free form, jazz jam. The guitar player as I said, sounded just like Carlos Santana. They were good but I'm not sure how good of a match they are with SOAD.
A great evening all in all.

SOAD rawks, i think they pretty much have the same tour going on, only they have a decent support act for you guys... and didnt they start with the whole intro thingy with the big flag?
The Boss: They call him "the Fairy"...
Slevin: Why do they call him "the Fairy"?
The Boss: Because he's a fairy.
Slevin: What, he's got wings... he flies around sprinkling magic dust on people?
The Boss: [angry] He's a homosexual!

Yeah the beginning of the concert started with Darren behind a 20 foot curtain backlit by a single white spot. The curtain had a huge Mezmerize Cd cover head on it. Then it dropped to the ground to reveal the rest of the band playing BYOB.


Howard:
            Mars Volta, They were OK. Not my bag, nothing more nothing less.
            Fantastic musicians that is a fact. But not my bag.
            I've also noticed a common theme when you post about me,...
            Almost without fail the "being stoned" reference.
            FYI Iwas strait as an arrow.
            I could be wrong,
            Maybe I'm just paranoid.
            They say pot does that to some people.

waaaaaaaa!!! i just got this email from the SOAD mailing list:

SYSTEM OF A DOWN SET TO RELEASE HYPNOTIZE NOVEMBER 22 ON CD AND DUALDISC

Six months after System of a Down's Mezmerize debuted at number one on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, the uncompromising and outspoken quartet returns with Hypnotize, part two of a promised two-album set.  American Recordings/Columbia will release two versions of Hypnotize, the band's fifth studio album, on November 22.

Both the CD and DualDisc versions feature 12 new songs as well as artwork by Vartan Malakian, father of SOAD's guitarist/singer Daron.  The packaging for Hypnotize is specially designed to physically join Mezmerize and Hypnotize together, forming one unified product with continuous artwork.  Additionally, the DualDisc edition will contain exclusive behind-the-scenes footage showing the making of both records.

More importantly, the albums interlock musically.  The final track on Hypnotize, "Soldier Side" completes "Soldier Side Intro," which appears as the opening track on Mezmerize.

HYPNOTIZE Track Listing
1. "Attack"
2. "Dreaming"
3. "Kill Rock 'n Roll"
4. "Hypnotize"
5. "Stealing Society"
6. "Tentative"
7. "U-Fig"
8. "Holy Mountains"
9. "Vicinity of Obscenity"
10. "She's Like Heroin"
11. "Lonely Day"
12. "Soldier Side"

-----------
cant wait!!
The Boss: They call him "the Fairy"...
Slevin: Why do they call him "the Fairy"?
The Boss: Because he's a fairy.
Slevin: What, he's got wings... he flies around sprinkling magic dust on people?
The Boss: [angry] He's a homosexual!

Wow you can remember that!
But not remember to bring home your interm report from school..... For three weeks.
The mind is indeed a complex network of nerons and transmitters but yours seems to be missing the connections needed for this kind of data storage.
The brain and it's capabilities in the adolecent mind,...will we ever understand it in all it's complexities?

  • I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me... They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely...
  • I'd show them the stars, and the meaning of life... They'd shut me away........... But I'll be all right...
