On Monday (May 12), me and Kristen went and saw Disturbed at the House of Blues in Atlantic City. Let me just say, the show was great. If you’ve never seen a show at the House of Blues, I recommend it – that place is cool as shit, a great venue for a concert of any kind. We had awsome seats, fourth row from the bottom on the balcony. Thanks to the guys at Decibel Magazine for hooking us up.
Art of Dying opened, and they were great – their CD is on my playlist now. They covered Them Bones by Alice in Chains, and it was actually very good. We even met the singer, Johnny, who was pretty cool. He was shaking hands and signing boobs while the other members were signing copies of their CD.
When Disturbed came on, naturally the crowd exploded. I fucked up my right shoulder with all the fist pounding throughout the night. Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions with their record label, the only new songs they played were Perfect Insanity and Inside the Fire – because the CD isn’t released yet – but their other music’s pretty damn good anyway.
The ride home took half as much gas as the ride there…I guess that’s the difference between 90 and 75. I couldn’t believe I had my voice back by the time I got home that night. I guess I owe that to Melissa Cross’s Zen of Screaming videos
Unfortunately, it seems nobody managed to sneak in a camera and get a good video of the concert, aside from a horribly low-quality 31 second thing I found on Youtube that I’m not even going to link to. So, I’ll have to just settle for the Inside the Fire video above.
