So for anyone who saw the Roach update, here's what happened-

Roach played last. Out of nowhere, 8 songs in, Jacoby announces "I have bad news" then tells the band and the crowd that the cops showed up and were shutting the show down. Apparently the promoter told them they could end an hour later than they really could. Clearly this was not the case. The band found out about the city's curfew while they were on stage playing! Roach was allowed to play one more song and had to get offstage immediately or they were in big trouble. Imagine being at the height of the show, then just abruptly going into Last Resort. It was actually one of the angrier performances of the song I've seen in all my time going to their shows. Jacoby ended it with a "Nothing's all riiiiiighhhht" death metal style growl. Definitely one of the weirder shows.

But on the bright side, the songs they did play were awesome. Got to see No Matter What finally which sounded great. I had a photo pass, so I'll post the article and photos when that's done :)

PS Drunkest crowd I think I've been around at a Roach show in recent times. Though the show was held in a brewery parking lot so that makes sense I guess.

Opener- they had a black curtain drop which was awesome.


Video is crazy-ish, but at 3:00 is the death growl:

(the caption is wrong- they did more than 4 songs. Ah, drunkies.)

And cus you guys knew me way back when I was just posting show reviews here and you were my only audience, I'll tell a non-Roach story from last night...
I wrote about a Buckcherry show a few weeks ago, sent the link to them via Twitter/Facebook and they were nice enough to post it for their fans to read it. During their set last night, Stevie (guitarist),—while he was playing!—asked me if I was Lorraine. I thought he was posing but he was talking to me! LOL Met him later and he said he recognized me from my article on Examiner (cus my head shot is with all my articles). Here's that moment:

That's the first time anyone's recognized me from the website and it's someone in a band I listen to! Unreal.

I didn't even realize how many cameras were out. I should write an article about what a fucking waste of time it is to hold up the camera and bounce around while you're filming. You're blocking everyone behind you and it results in a horrible video.

I would complain about the half set, but Loz, my heart breaks for you (and Adir) so I will shut up.
