I guess I just never really understood the exact exposure that BRMC gets, caue I expected it to be really packed and sold out, but I got there early enough and got to the very front of the stage. I guess not as many people know about them as I expected, but they should! I did manage to catch a drumstick though!!! Will post pics soon.

I know I'm gonna catch heat for this, but let me start by saying I'm a big fan. Saw BRMC last time they were in ATL at the Roxy - it was one of the greatest shows I have ever seen - their sound was so huge and sonic. Also saw them in Amsterdam, they were hot.
The new stuff is really stripped down, and that's fine, but even the old songs seemed to be played in this stripped down fashion. The energy just wasn't the same. This show really didn't come close to the Roxy show. I don't mind the artistic change in direction for the new album (critics seem to fawn over their ability to put out a different sound) but I didn't like how all the energy is removed from the previous albums' songs. I think "Howl" is a good record to have in the catalog; but I hope BRMC returns to their previous energy, because loud, fuzzy and sonic is when they sound hot!!

I couldn't agree more. I was so excited for show friday night after seeing BRMC several times in the past. The Roxy show was one of the most rockin shows, but i left friday night saying it was Ok. I do like the new album, but they didn't blow me away like the past.

All of you are so very, very wrong. I was at the Roxy show, and I was even in the front, and I did not have half as good of a time as I did at the Loft. Not because BRMC was better, because they always put on a great show, but because I wasn't stuck by a Frat guy, and a group of sluts like I was at the Roxy. People in the front at the loft actually knew the songs, and were excitied to be there, and BRMC was full of energy, and it was great. The only reason all of you didn't have as much fun is probably because there were no drunk sluts for you to go home with that night.

I was not disappointed by this performance at all. I have seen BRMC 3 times now once at the shelter in detroit, the roxy and the loft. I thought the new material translated great live and I thought the old stuff sounded great (with the exception of rise or fall it sounded a bit rough. I also thought as sure as the sun was an odd pick as I always thought of it more as a filler track). I did notice that Robert and Peter seemed to be fighting for the limelight much more than in the past. I thought it was odd, but regardless the show was amazing.

I came to the the BRMC show @ the Loft with a friend, at first only feeling neutral towards the band and their music. I had listened to a few of their songs from two of their albums, and was interested enough to go see them live. Sometimes bands can surprise you and actually surpass the quality of their recorded sound when they play live. For me, BRMC is that type of band. The concert was pretty energetic to me, having none of their other shows to compare it to. I genuinely dug them, and am glad I went to see them. My aforementioned friend knows how picky I am when it comes to music, how skeptical and critical I am of each band I hear. I'm still not hardcore, but I now have some solid favorites from their catalog. They're rockin'! WHOO! :)

The Loft show is what rock and roll is supposed to be about: smashing pre-concieved notions of what was and boldly presenting the next wave. The enrgy was there, sustained, all over the room. This being my 4th BRMC show, I was ready for the change. They blew me away at the Cotton Club (their first ATL gig, where they swapped spots with the Dandies and went on after everyone had left, playing for me, my friends, the Dandies and the bartender. Wow.) They blew me away at the Earl, but in Portland (a very boring place to see the best bands out there - nobody dances and everyone's white) I was starting to sense a formula in the sound.
I am so, so glad that I made this show. They rocked...different. That's good.

Hey, Im from PORTLAND and I resent the comment that we are boring, all white and etc.....spend some time there and you will see more of PDX's underbelly than you care to see while merely scratching the surface with your observations. Did you see BRMC at Berbati's Pan? No? Really? Ok, then enough said.....think before you speak about towns you are not from.
Atlanta show was cool. The loft has a nice stage, but shitty sound man. That guy needs to think about what he is doing. Also might want to think about setting the delay properly on all the other speaker throughout the club. If you don't know how, then email me and I will tell you.
Band was great as always. Peter was going with the what I call OUTSIDERS haircut. Fucking great book! Not a bad movie either.
PS FUCK THE US GOVERNMENT
