05/09/2018 Stone Temple Pilots, Camp Howard (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

By Eric | May 11, 2018 10:44 am

It had been seven years just about to the day (+2 days, but who’s counting?) since I’d last seen STP, and armed with a new album and yet another new singer (RIP Weiland and Chester) the band did some club dates interspersed with their big festival appearances.

I got there in time to catch the opener, Camp Howard. Oh Joy. I personally wasn’t all that impressed, but then again, jangly indie-rock isn’t my thing either. However, upon retreating to the merch tables and seeing that the band’s only other item for sale besides a t-shirt is a tote bag, I really think you’re on the wrong side of the rock and roll ledger. A freaking TOTE BAG. Get off my lawn with that nonsense!

2018-05-09 20.15.43 - STP

Anyway, I caught up with Dave and his friend Kristina, and we hung in the back for STP’s set. New singer Jeff Gutt (who I didn’t realize had sung for Dry Cell, they of Body Crumbles on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack fame) did his own thing, and while yeah, he kinda sounds like Weiland, he kinda doesn’t, and that’s great. He’s not a copy at all. The DeLeo brothers along with drummer Eric Kretz sounded fantastic all night, and I was really happy with the setlist selection. They worked in five new songs among the 20 total, and they fit right in (Roll Me Under is my favorite). Beyond that, nothing off of either Shangri-La-De-Da or the 2010 self-titled (nor the High Rise EP for that matter), but we did get some deeper cuts off the older albums. Silvergun Superman (which I saw in 2011) and Lounge Fly off of Purple; and then Glide, Sex & Violence, and Atlanta off of No. 4 (never saw any of those!). I hadn’t seen Piece of Pie since the two shows in 2000 either, so that was cool for the first song of the encore. Like I said in the 2011 review, it was cool that it wasn’t just radio hits all the way through (no Sour Girl, Creep, Down, Days of the Week, etc.) as I can hear those anytime. A fun show to be sure!

04/18/2018 Papa Roach, Nothing More, Escape The Fate (Rochester, NY @ Main Street Armory)

By Eric | April 19, 2018 3:32 pm

I had been looking forward to this one for a little bit, as I had missed a couple of opportunities to see Nothing More in the past few years, and I really like the new Papa Roach album as well. I hadn’t seen either band since early 2015 (PRoach with Godsmack, Nothing More (barely) with Periphery), so I was due. Escape The Fate was the first band on, and they were just as inoffensive and bland this time as they were when I saw them on Uproar in 2011. They weren’t bad, they weren’t good, they were just there.

I met up with Danielle, Dave, and Dave’s friend Kristina, and then Adam wasn’t too far behind them. We all nudged up a bit as Nothing More was about to come on, and then Adam, Danielle and I meandered up a little further. I was super excited to finally see them play a full set, and they didn’t disappoint. They played all of the hits off the new album, including Fade In / Fade Out which I love, the standards off the self-titled, and they’re still playing Salem! We also got a Skrillex cover with Johnny Hawkins playing the “scorpion”. They sounded great, the crowd response was really good, and again, I was just happy to see a full set!

2018-04-18 Papa Roach / Nothing More @ Main Street Armory

We moved on back for the beginning of Papa Roach, and they too sounded great. I really liked the setlist this time out, probably because I really like the new album. Eight songs (our of 19) off of Crooked Teeth, including starting with the title track. Following that with To Be Loved, Face Everything and Rise, and Still Swingin’ made for a nice opening run. About two-thirds of the way through the set, Jacoby said he noticed a few little mosh pits here and there, but for the next song he wanted one big one. I had kinda been getting antsy anyway, so I looked at Adam and asked, “Should we come out of mosh retirement?”. We gave each other the “sure, why not?” look, and headed in! The band started up Traumatic, and away we went. Everybody up front was really cool, and I stayed up there for the rest of the set. Somehow during the ensuing chaos Danielle made it all the way to the barrier! It was fun being up there especially because we got a cover of Song 2, Between Angels and Insects, and then the encore was None of the Above followed by Last Resort (that song is old enough to vote!). They also stuck part of Linkin Park’s “In The End” into “Forever” which was nice. Overall, this old man had a great time up front – A+++ Would Mosh Again!
