Another great show, my 3rd BRMC show. I was second row center, close enough to see my reflection in Nicks kick drum.

The morning after girls were exelent live, and have a great CD that you should check out.

Elephant was okay, the lead singer looked and acted alittle bit too much like Jim Morrison, I was wondering if they were a Doors cover band.

The BRMC set was great, one or two songs missing, and the set was cut short due to the venue wanting to kick us out and have a "Disco party" after, wich Robert fully enoursed and said "Disco's whare its at man, I thought I knew you guys."

I was in the very front and center. I only arrived a half an hour early, but was first in line. By the end the club was full (maybe 500-600 people).

Firstly, Morning After Girls were really, really awesome. I bought their CD, although I think they were much better live. If their CD were as good as their live show, they could be what BRMC was in 2001. I think they played a lot of stuff that was unreleased. I haven't really heard of any band being australian until them.

The singer from Elefant... hmm. Too much of a diva. Put his hand on my head a lot. Put a girl's hand on his leg and sang to her. He knows too well that he is good looking. Pants were too tight in a way that took away from the music (which, by the way, wasnt all that interesting to begin with). Their music doesn't move enough. Too many 2-chord progressions.

I sensed an emotional distance between the band. Robert was beautiful (I am not gay, by the way) but he is a very beautiful guy. His performance, too, was beautiful. He had so much power in him... Such force. He seemed alone, but nonetheless very sure of himself.

Peter too, seemed someone alone.

Nick seemed liked he was just playing the drums. Like he wasnt really "listening" to the songs. I am sure that he has heard their music far too much and it is all automatic, so i don't blame him. Seemed like a nice guy, for some reason. I digress...

It was very good. I wish they had played less "back to our roots" (howl) stuff, but again, I am sure they are sick of playing the other albums. Their encore was awesome. I love how their guitar sounds were just like the ones on the records.

Wish I could have seen them in 2001 or so.

This was an amazing show, definitely! I was on third row, center... excellent angle to take loads of good pics and to go deaf by the end of the night. Check the pics here:

The Morning After Girls: very good band, definitely. The CD that I bought right there after the concert is good, not as loud or rocky as in concert, i wonder why... quite a shame, but still a very good album, guys! oh, and Aimee: you are damn hot. took very nice pictures of her.

Elefant: Diego, as a good argentinean, has a tremendous ego and acted as if he was a famous singer. Reality check: you're not, Diego. The songs work a lot better on the album that live, your jeans like someone else posted, were too tight for comfort (and you've got a small package, Diego, admit it) and I loved it when he throw his towel to the audience and a guy screamed, full of sarcasm, in a beatles-fan kind of way, "oh my god!". their bit was filmed, i guess this made Diego act more like a prima donna, but still... the rest of the band: nice chaps, good sound (so good that Diego's voice disappeared in the background).

BRMC: fantastic from beginning to end. it was clear that they were able to mix the new sound with their wall of sound of yesteryear in a very effective way, i loved it. like someone else said, peter and robert seemed a bit distant but hey, the songs worked out in a fantastic way, really. the voices were perfect, the jesus & mary chain trademarked wall of sound sent shivers up and down my spine, the alt.folk songs were simply a bliss. since i don't live in the US and this will probably be the only time i see BRMC in concert for a long time, it's something i'll never forget!

again, pics are here:

I just want to sick up for the guys in Elephant and say they put on a hell of a show. Diego is a talented frontman and Id like to see any of you critics get up on stage at the Avalon in front of 500 people and bring the house down the way they did.
