Saw this show at Starland Ballroom in NJ last night, sold out, packed venue. My fourth year seeing Clutch on their annual East Coast Holiday Run. Clutch was excellent, as always, big dip into their first two albums, a great mix of their catalog, and two new songs they'll be recording for the new album in the next few months. Great to see these guys only getting more popular, very interesting to see a bands popularity steadily increasing this far into an understated career. These guys are proof positive that the old formula of earning every fan one show at a time still works.
The most *fun* part of the night though was Devin Townsend opening. What an awesome performer, definitely one of rocks strongest vocalists, great band, over the top bombastic prog metal, and maybe the funniest man in the business. I can't recall the last time a rock performer made me laugh so hard, his rapid-fire humor had the place in stitches!
Always best when you get to see two killer acts in one night, great show!
