The soundtrack to high school! @bush @freaks4live @ourladypeace at @cmacevents last night – @gavinrossdale came pretty close to us during his tour of the seats! #concertpics #bush #live #olp #ourladypeace

A post shared by Eric Bonus (@woopops_music_stuff) on

Jon and Art hauled up for this celebration of our high school soundtrack – billed as the ALTimate tour, it was the celebration of the 25th anniversary’s of Bush’s Sixteen Stone, Live’s Throwing Copper, and Our Lady Peace’s Naveed, all released in 1994. Holy crap I’m old.

Anyway, we walked in just as OLP was starting. It was kinda bizarre to see them as an opener, and the first of three at that. This being my 19th time seeing OLP, it was only the third time as any kind of opener, and the other two times they were direct support, both of which were 20 years ago! The setlist is barely worth complaining about because they only got a half-hour, but I will say it was cool to see the reactions for Superman’s Dead and Clumsy from a not-necessarily-there-for-OLP crowd. And yes, I wore the shirt!

OLP

Drop Me in the Water
Innocent
Superman’s Dead
Somewhere Out There
Clumsy
Stop Making Stupid People Famous
Starseed

Even though they were the middle band, Live played a longer set (14 songs), although two of them were covers. They were extremely solid, and just as good as when I saw them two years ago opening for GNR. Obviously the set was heavy on Throwing Copper tunes (8 out of the 14 on the album), and it was very cool to hear The Dam at Otter Creek and White, Discussion since I didn’t hear those the last time. They still had the two drummers, and sounded great. Art kept saying he didn’t know too many Live songs, put his over/under at 2.5, and I think we had him at at least 6 by the time the set was over!

Live

The Dam at Otter Creek
All Over You
Selling the Drama
Losing My Religion (R.E.M. cover)
Shit Towne

The Dolphin’s Cry
Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones cover)
Lakini’s Juice
I Alone
White, Discussion
Heaven (Ed solo acoustic)
Turn My Head (Ed solo acoustic, joined by Chad at the end)
Lightning Crashes

I’d seen Bush four years prior at the Armory, and thought they were quite good then, and this show was much the same, if not shorter. They came out on fire with Machinehead, and judging from the other setlists from this tour, we then got a couple curveballs! The Chemicals Between Us and Swallowed hadn’t been played much, and I hadn’t seen Swallowed the last time I saw them. The new tunes were pretty good too (This Is War and Bullet Holes). Gavin went for a tour around the seats during Little Things and came fairly close, not close enough to touch this time however haha. The set was surprisingly short (11 songs), but of course heavy on Sixteen Stone, and was a good time nonetheless. Certainly sounded like high school!

05/18/2019 Light The Torch, Cry To The Blind, Murder In Rue Morgue, Poison The Prophet (Syracuse, NY @ Westcott Theater)

Howard's hat is radioactive! Meet and greet with @lightthetorchband before the show at @thewestcotttheater tonight! @womby_hellmerica @francescoartus @charmingscuzz #howardjones #lightthetorch #meetandgreet #westcotttheater #syracuse #concertpics

A post shared by Eric Bonus (@woopops_music_stuff) on

I met Howard!!! I sprung for the VIP meet and greet for this one, and it was well worth it. I’d seen the band twice before in their previous incarnation as Devil You Know, and met Fran and Ryan at the merch table after the 2nd time in Buffalo. But this was the first time meeting Howard and new drummer Mike Sciulara. Each band member was really cool and took some time to chat as opposed to just rolling through the picture/autograph assembly line. Good stuff.

We had some time between the meet and greet and the show itself, so shout out to whoever mentioned the bar next door for food – my burger at Beer Belly Deli was awesome!

As for the show itself, the openers were either Rochester or Syracuse bands, all of which put on quality sets. Poison the Prophet I’d seen a couple times before when they were Million Miles From Broadway, and this version of the band was really good. Two singers, some catchy riffs, it made for a good time. Murder in Rue Morgue was a straight-up metal band and they rocked it also. Cry to the Blind was alright, a bit lighter than I would have guessed for a show like this, but decent all the same.

I was pumped for Light The Torch, as while I liked the two Devil You Know albums a lot, I like Revival even better. They didn’t disappoint – the band rocked, Howard was all over the stage screaming and singing his head off, and the crowd was into it. They still dropped in a couple DYK tunes (Embracing the Torture, Consume the Damned, The Way We Die), and the new songs sounded fantastic. I got to hear my favorites (Calm Before The Storm, Lost in the Fire, Die Alone) so I was happy as a clam, and the other songs were just as good. The entire night was a blast!

The Bitter End
Embracing the Torture
Calm Before the Storm
Lost in the Fire
Virus
Consume the Damned
The Safety of Disbelief
The Sound of Violence
The God I Deserve
The Way We Die
Die Alone
