I'd go too, if I had the money. Tell us how he is currently executing himself after the show.

During the show he will die by electrocution and later by guillotine.

Damn. He was doing that when I saw him. I wish he could work in Chinese water torture somewhere.

Actually, AC doesn't die during Electro-shock. It turns him into a 25" monster. Frankencoop! And this show is almost one year to the day from when I saw him in LA last year, on Nov. 29th.

Was lucky enough to see Alice a few years ago, outdoor show in Buffalo for $10, Anvil even opened. It was great. He pulled everything from his bag of tricks. He played here again this past summer, co-headlining with Marilyn Manson for around $25, but I wanted no part of that, with Alice opening for MM.

11/29 "Filmage"(screening of The Descendents/All documentary) Town Ballroom, Buffalo
11/30 Negative Approach - The Waiting Room, Buffalo
12/9 Moistboyz - The Lovin' Cup, Rochester
12/29 Clutch/Lionize - Montage, Rochester
1/10/14 Clutch/The Sword - Town Ballroom

Alice Cooper: The Gitmo Tour! Watch Alice get water-boarded by the best, you'd swear they killed him!*



*AC actually prefers this to an affixiatingly enhanced sexual conquest

After a very busy and stressful stretch at work slows down a bit in mid January, I see some shows on the horizon that I hope to catch at least a couple of. Stickmen, ZPZ, Michael Schenker, Secret Chiefs 3 w/ Mirthkon (supposedly very Zappa influenced), the Tubes, and the Reverend Horton Heat.

UPDATE:

March 27 ~ Bob Seger, Rogers Arena
April 15 ~ Prince, Vogue Theatre (show #2 of 4 - thanks to a half price discount)
April 16 ~ Prince, Vogue Theatre (show #4 of 4 - thanks to a half price discount)
July 26 ~ Rush, Rogers Arena
December 14 ~ Fates Warning, Studio Seven, Seattle


Over the weekend I travelled to Seattle to see Fates Warning and had a blast! At first, after walking for an hour all throughout southern downtown and part of its outskirts to get to the show, since transit was having issues, I walked in the club and immediately noticed that it appeared that the sound wasn't going to be good because of not only the 4 pillars in the centre of the floor but the second floor (drinking area) was positioned so high, that it was almost above the stage. It was a weird setting but once the 100 minute GA show started, I was about 3rd or 4th row centre and it sounded fantastic.

Their newest full-time member, Bobby Jarzombek is simply one of THE best drummers on planet earth right now - the guy plays poly-rhythms & double-kick like nobody's business! During one song, their bassist, Joey Vera, took the headstock of his bass and carefully placed it on one kid's head in the front row while he played a few bars! It was completely improvised and lead vocalist, Ray Alder, who was singing at the top of his abilities, commented on it afterwards. Even principle songwriter, Jim Matheos, who has a somewhat sullen personality, was FAR more interactive with the crowd than I've ever seen him be before. Hired hand, Michael Abdow, taking over for Frank Aresti - who couldn't get time off work for this tour, played Frank's lead guitar parts with vigor. I think this show was just as good, if not better than the Parallels reunion tour show I saw in LA (where I bought the meet & greet package) in 2010. This surprised me. Not because I wasn't expecting it to be good...but they were so ON, it was shocking!

SETLIST:

One Thousand Fires
Life in Still Water
A Pleasant Shade of Gray, Part III
Another Perfect Day
One
A Pleasant Shade of Gray, Part VI
Pieces of Me
I Am
The Eleventh Hour
Point of View
Firefly
Through Different Eyes
The Ivory Gate of Dreams: IV - Quietus
A Pleasant Shade of Gray, Part XI
Wish
Monument

Encore

Still Remains (minus intro)


Considering FW are exceptionally good musicians are write amazingly well-crafted prog-metal songs, it's absolutely criminal these guys aren't more popular, as there were only about 200 fans in attendance (according to a Portland fan I was talking to afterwards, that show only had about 75 fans). I don't buy much concert merch any more because I have way too much of it already. But I just had to buy the $40 tour hoodie so I could help them out, as every dollar counts for them.

Late Sunday morning and in the early afternoon, I walked down to the Pike Place/Public Market and found a good diner to have some breakfast and chill, with a good view of the harbour and ferries. I then found a book/pic store with a framed pic of FZ that was from the '95 Ryko remasters promo campaign. Lastly, I checked out the Edgewater Inn, for obvious Zappa related reasons, before returning home...

I'm confident you will get there GG and I think Mick and Keith are indestructible. Enjoy the show. I finally saw the Stones in the late '90's and I'd go again if I could afford it.

Sounds like a great time DB. Glad you shared it. Anything near The Edgewater Inn ya gotta check out for obvious Zappa related reasons. It would be like a sin or something if you didn't and where so close, ya know? Especially during Zappadan, that must have been cool! :wink: :D 8)

Yeah, it was! Thanks.

Though, afterwards, since that part of town is very hilly and because I was walking east and the Edgewater Inn is on Alaskan Way, I had to climb up a very steep flight of steps that made me sweat bullets by the time I got back onto Western Avenue...

I agree, they are a great band. Symphony X doesn't get the credit it deserves either.

...and a fat wallet.

I finally saw them in 2005. $80 for obstructed view. They were good, though.

Yeah, really wanted to go myself here in Chicago but couldn't justify shelling out the dough when the antics would be near what I could catch on the boob tube for free. Now if I knew I'd get to hang with them, that'd be a different story! :mrgreen:
