Happened to be strolling past the house of blues and saw a vaguely familiar looking dude on the corner and thought "hey that looks like Terrance Hobbs" :huh:

I walked up to the box office and discovered that this tour happened to be in town this very night :gay:

after missing the Boston show I am very excited to stumble upon the tour on my little mini vacation down here :greenie:

it was excellent :thingy: an unexpected surprise that really made the trip worthwhile. i was in town on account of helping a (now-former) roommate move down there, and was dreading it mainly due to a change in plans that required us to drive his shitty deathtrap car all the way down.

i missed the first two openers due to needing food, but i caught all of suffocation. i went in with low expectations since they're touring behind a new album, but they did 2-3 tracks off that and everything else was oldschool pre-hiatus stuff, and they absolutely nailed it all. leige in particular seemed sped up considerably. their new singer is a very respectable stand-in for frank, and his air-drumming timing is impeccable; dude was holding it down mid crowd-surf at the end of MA's set when the rest of the tour came on stage.

it was the last stop on the tour and at least inbetween songs it was pretty apparent steve was losing his voice. no issues with the performance itself though, they played a pretty great set all around. very refreshing to see them playing the steve era stuff, crazy to think it's been more than 10 years since i last saw any of these songs performed. but as has been discussed by others, vadim von definitely isn't an ideal secondary. notably, the outro lead from ageless really wasn't up to snuff, which is confusing because it's not a particularly demanding one :huh:

i was especially happy to catch up with trey for a few minutes before the show, we chatted quake stuff for a bit. i wanted to try and get in touch after the show, but by the time it was over i was absolutely exhausted and decided to head back to the hotel. i walked about 15 miles that day and sobered up twice before the show.

i have been in extreme sard mode since returning home but once i have some motivation i will get some pictures uploaded, maybe

i'm more concerned about the actual songs than whatever silly names they might have

Well that goes without saying, but the first piece of information we might get is a tracklist, and worst case scenario lame song titles turn out to be an indicator for actual lame songs once we hear them. I remain positive though.
