Voivod Concert Review – 3/19/10
March 19, 2010
Live at Scoot Inn, Austin, TX
I’m having a blast during SxSW this year. Just saw legendary DC area doom band Iron Man. Not too bad at all. But at 5PM today I saw my second Voivod show. Just wow.
Before the show, each one of the guys in the band asked me if I was hurt badly at the other show a few days ago. Very nice of them. And for my vast audience, yes, I’m fine. No worries.
We saw a few bands before Voivod his the stage…locals Iron Age and NAAM from Brooklyn, NY. Both bands sounded great. Right at the end of NAAM’s set, Jeff and I worked our way into the light crowd and got front and center like we did for the 3/17 show.
After a quick soundcheck they went into the song Voivod. Sounded great. They are a very solid band and I wish I would have had the chance to see them years ago. Dan Mongrain is a very competent guitar player…it’s surely a requirement to play in this band. They have some good riffs and I really wish I could enjoy their early work a little more. However, hearing/seeing them live is great.
I was happy to see that they had some merch today. Do I need more black t-shirts? Well, it’s not always a question of need is it? They had a Nothingface shirt. Unfortunately they were out of XXL. I should lose some weight so I can own some cooler t-shirts. Yeah? I instead bought the Killing Technology shirt.
The band seems to enjoy playing live. Lots of movement, lots of glances, laughs and smiles at each other. I’m really excited to see them again tomorrow for the 3rd time this week.
Enjoy the picks from today. I’ll try to get some video up soon as well.
