Worlds Apart

Song in my head:
"Another Morning Stoner" by . . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead

Saw . . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead last night and I'm still recovering. They were even better than when I saw them on the Source Tags and Code tour. Hard to believe, but yes, even better. They played a few new songs (which slayed) and material mostly from Madonna and Source Tags and Code. My guess about what the second drummer did was correct: almost every song had double-drumming. In other words, the drums, as a whole, felt like cannons going off. A little past the halfway point in the set, the bassist took his bass off and smashed it. It seemed a litte too soon to start breaking stuff and ending the set. Twas not the case: the bassist from Sound Team lent him a bass and the set continued. The set ended with the brand new set of Premier drums that Jason played on being totalled. Then he passed almost every part of it out to people in the crowd. I didn't want to try and wrestle one out of someone's hands and the floor was incredibly slippery (due to a large amount of food, water and beer thrown around during the set). I just needed time to realize what all I had just seen.

As a side note to the show: I did see an old friend that I hadn't seen in about a year. I heard that he was still in the metroplex but was looking for a job. He's thinking about moving closer to where I live so, it would be cool to see him more. We traded phone numbers and that was that.

Don't know if we're playing football and kickball today. The forecast has a 60 percent chance of rain today. Shall wait and see.
