This was my first BRMC show. I'll not talk about the opening bands, just because I don't really feel like it. BRMC was pretty damn good. For me, most of the highlights came from the material from Howl. The songs Peter played solo were beautiful, especially the first two from the encore: Faultline and Devil's Waitin'. They received quite a hearty reception from the crowd. His voice and guitar playing are beautiful. The absolute highlight was Gospel Song. One of the best performances of a song I've ever seen. They added a new part at the end, it was pretty damn loud and featured an amazing guitar solo by Robert. Very intense.

From the older material, highlights were In Like the Rose, Spread Your Love, and Heart + Soul. The latter was quite an ass kicking, loud as hell with lots of distortion and squealing guitar. P.S. Robert is a freaking amazing bass player. I loved how they transitioned from Heart + Soul to Open Invitation to end the show. BRMC are very talented. The end.

First ever B.R.M.C. show after trying to catch them for a couple years. Great show. The diversity of talent within the band is impressive and the diversity of sound they produce exhibits that. I brought a few non-fans w/ me, who left wanting to borrow all my B.R.M.C. albums. The new stuff was quite good live. They did an interesting electric rock version of 'Sympathetic Noose', which caught me a bit off guard but sounded great. Loved the setlist, though I was hoping for 'Mercy' as they had played at their previous shows. Highlight of the show for me was my personal favorite 'Heart & Soul', which they transitioned into High/Low I believe. Overall great show. Best $15 I've spent in a while. Can't wait to see them again.

It would have been cooler if Anton of BJM was there instead of frontman for The Dandy Warhols. So far it was the best show I have seen in 2006. A 45 minute encore. Could you ask for anything more? They are really passionate about their music and don't really give a shit what anyone else thinks....true musicians. By the way fucking Deigo Garcia trying so hard with that chick in the audience....I wonder if he actually got a hold of her later.

The show began with a somewhat subdued, low-keyed mood as the songs from 'Howl' were featured. tempo and energy were gradually and very effectively taken to a higher level as the evening progressed with the performance of some of the earlier more aggressive traditional alternative-sound (oxymoron? lol) songs mixed into the playlist leaving the audience definitely wanting more when the 90 minute set ended.
B.R.M.C. responded to the resonating cheers of the crowd for encore... which was incredibly intense, electrifying and totally mind-blowing. the 45-minute encore began with Peter taking the stage by himself under a spotlight performing soulfully with beautiful acoustic guitar and sweet harmonica emanating lots of emotion before being joined by the other band members to bring the tempo up and rock a bit...
Then, it happened!... that_which_all_live_music_fans_await....
...somehow, someway, B.R.M.C. absolutely exploded out of 'Gospel Song', onto another plane of creative excitement and into one of the most memorable and innovative pieces of musical adventure that i have ever witnessed. and, i've seen lots of bands perform live over the years (3 decades). Robert seemed to effortless lead his bandmates into the most electrifying and unimaginable sounds of spontaneity filled with dimension built upon a mishmash of sustained feedback and pulsating rhythm and smooth guitarwork creating the most beautiful music from what seemed the pure essence of chaos. it was enchanting, it was enthralling, it was hypnotizing, it was trippy...
It was amazing magical work of very creative and talented musicians of vision like no other. i was spellbound as were the hundreds of people around me. then the beautiful musical chaos subsided into the low soft hum of a dimly spotlighted solo Peter (i think, a building support column blocked my view and i was too spellbound to be sure. lol) who appeared to be kneeling over a keyboard laying flat on the stage ending the show with a melodically haunting rendition of 'Open Invitation'.
~~~ A truly totally amazing show, to be sure ~~~
i hope i can see B.R.M.C. perform live again, soon!

I thought the show was amazing
I was so close and felt like they were playing for me alone.
I just wish someone knew the setlist..
they played red eyes and tears which made my night, because it sounded so great live.
I had only two small problems with the show though
1.the vocals were way too low, I could hardly hear them
2.asome stupid jerk kept burning me with his cig.
