This shit will fuck you up. Seeing this show almost made up for wasting my money on that garbage Sisters of Mercy concert a while back. Although, one of the opening bands did play a really shitty version of “Lucretia, my reflection.” And the very first opening band sounded like they came straight out of my high-school talent show. “If you guys don’t start moshing to this song, I’m gonna have to come down there and start it myself!” Surprisingly, when no one moshed, he stayed onstage playing his shitty rendition of “March of the Pigs,” watching a thoroughly unmoved audience.
Anyhow, if you’re into electro-industrial music and Combichrist comes by your town, check them out. They have great stage presence and their fans really get into the music. I hopped in and out of the pit for a while and had a phenomenal time. At times I did think the House of Blues floor was gonna break through since I could feel it bending and creaking with the force of a bunch of rivetheads bouncing up and down and slamming into each other, but ultimately the floor held and I had a blast. My friend ended up talking me into picking up MSI tickets for March 20th, so we’ll be back before too long . If that show is as solid as this one was, it will have been money well spent.
