    I'm gonna find someone to talk to about this.

    Was a cool show. Not intimately familiar with a lot of Failure's output, but I figured if I was ever gonna see them, this would be the time.

    They opened it with a 15-minute montage of several movies, presumably ones that were a major influence when they were writing the record. Didn't recognize all of them, but some were The Spy Who Loved Me, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Tarkovsky's Solaris, and - surprise, surprise - Fantastic Planet. I'm sure it would've been cool to look at... if it weren't for the fact that The Roxy sucks and you can never see anything. (Wish I'd known about The Glass House show before I'd bought my ticket.)

    Band sounded good, were stationary most of the time. No moshing. Since they're an older band that's not a huge surprise.

    Sounds like a good time. I would love to go to the Grand Rapids show.. Since it seems to be the closest to me, but not sure if I would want to drive the 7 hours haha. But the fact that their playing Fantastic Planet, in its entirety, that's pretty damn cool! Also, the few people I know that like this band either don't want to make the trip with me or I know from the internet. Ah well! Anyways, the show sounds like it was pretty rad, man!

    Haha, thanks for writing in dude!

    Show was fun, but I don't know if it's a 14-hour round trip of fun! I have a hard time imagining any band that would inspire that kind of devotion from me.

    (Maybe, if I could go back in time, Protest the Hero's Kezia tour last year - if I had still been living in WA.)

    Still, tough to hear you're having trouble finding people who know/like the band. Kids have no respect these days...

    Not a problem :)

    Haha fair enough. I did a trip that was about 7 hours one-way, to go see Modest Mouse with Brand New opening. I wasn't the one driving though, so it wasn't so bad, and it was also kind of a scenic drive, through upstate New York area, so it was fairly nice. Anyways, oh nice! Protest The Hero is great! Haha yeah, I guess so, eh. Oh well :)
