Helmet

Helmet @ the Slidebar March 2011

There was a free show last night at the Slidebar with Helmet, Sederra and Backlight Revelation. I was only able to catch the last half of Helmet's set but it was worth it.  The last time I saw Helmet was before Betty came out, so maybe 93-94. I've always liked them, they reminded me of a catchier Godflesh. Those that know me know my love for Justin and his almighty Godflesh, so that wasn't a slight on them. Fast foward 15 plus years, I know it's not the same band but Page and company still put on a good show. I heard people complaining that they were playing new material for the first half of the set but by the time I got there they had already started playing the classics,  In the Meantime and Strap It On songs. Here's the pics-

Not sure if I was going to make the whole New Age Fest with it starting around noon, so I decided to hit this show up to catch some of the bands I was gonna miss. Cutting Through and Decline are always fun to watch. Loved Safe & Sound and Restraining Order. Second dose of Fixation was nice and look out for new merch by Treason with a photo you might recognize. Notspoken? Wasn't sure what was going to go on with this one... short but sweet set with 3 singers. It was fun.

Rad show in a very sketchy neighborhood. I kinda miss those 7th street shows now. Venue was really cool, a nice warehouse with a great stage.  Perfect line up and a show where I didn't wanna miss a single band. Honestly these shows are when I miss little Danny most, these are the bands that he loves. Hopefully he'll be down for FTC.

I was worried about this being an outdoor show all day long, and then Danny from Drug Control text with the amazing news that it changed to the indoor venue. Good times. Loved seeing new and old friends, east coast and west, and assholes like Andrew Kline too. Mike and Chris Lisk did a great job. I love that Mike is doing New Age again, he has a great roster already.
