Lynch Mob - tonight

Recommended Posts

I am leaning towards not going.

It is about a 30 minute drive to St. Paul, it is about 20 degree's out. $18 to get in, plus parking somewhere. They go on at 9:45p and I get up for work at 5a.

I've never had the chance to see Lynch Mob. I really only like their first two releases.

 

Should I be old and lazy and stay home, or get off my ass and go? I have about an hour to decide.

i saw them when they played with Faster Pussycat here in oz.

To me they were boring, and it was a load of guitar wank.

 

I would not go and see them again.

 

But, i guess if' you've never seen em, and it's only gonna cost ya $18.... why not.

 

Is $18 worth the price of the regret of not seeing them?

Or can your $18 be better spent elsewhere?

Good point, I certainly don't want to hear a bunch of drawn out guitar solo's with an occasional old song in there.

With $18, I could get a case of Miller Lite, or perhaps my first CD purchase of 2011...though I dont know what that will be yet.

I'd go. Assuming it's a similar setlist to when they were here, if you like the debut then you should go see them. I thought they were very solid, but as Lindsay says they were a little boring. Plus they missed some of my favourites off the debut. But minus 'No bed of roses' and 'Through these eyes' I think they played the entire debut, so it was pretty cool.

 

For $18 I'd make the effort for sure, especially if you've never seen them. I've been in your situation before where laziness wins out, but I often regret not going afterwards. And every single time, without fail, when I do go, I am glad I did.

 

Your choice, mate, but I'd go. :)

 

Who's supporting?

This is the old guy in me speaking but I think I would pass knowing I've got over an hours worth of driving, plus depending what time they finally go on and get done who knows when you will get back to town, especially when you have to be up at 5am. I'm yawning just thinking about it. LOL grandpacane.gif

Reports from their Denver show two nights ago are that they sucked and Oni was drunk and fell down. I think there's a video over at sleazeroxx. If their like that every night no thank you. I'd stay home and play the first two cds and save my money.

LOL...yeah, that is what I was doing when I was mapping out the Station 4 building in St. Paul, knowing that they go on at 9:45, playing 90 minutes so you can figure done around midnight, home and in bed around 1a, up at 5a to make the same drive. "Oh, the humanity!"

But I hear what Geoff is saying...by the time the weekend rolls around I might wish I'd went.

Wow, I don't know any of those support acts and not to judge a book by it's cover, but they don't sound very inviting.

 

Yeah, the only gig I missed in recent years out of laziness was LA Guns, and it's not like it's one of the big regrets of my life or anything, or it's not like I even lost any sleep over it at all, but I still really wish I'd gone. :)

Well when I saw them at Firefest last year I walked out after 4 songs.

 

Great musicians, but musical wank is definitely not my thing, and after the great crowd connection through Dare, Bonfire and Shotgun Symphony it was a bit of a mystery why LM were even headlining the show.

 

Id give it a massive swerve..........

I ended up staying home and took the suggestion from Wes and just spinning the first 2 releases. I think, reading the comments from you guys about some of their more recent shows that I won't regret it too much.

I heard that it was the best show that has been done in the last 20 years in the tri-state area! Plus, EVERY hot chick in the crowd had their shirts off and were throwing their bras up on stage throughout the set. Sounds like you really missed out. :aw:

I heard that too Rick! Plus, they had a suprise guest, some band called Parasite City. Ever heard of them?? :whistle:

 

:D

 

On a sort of related note, Dokken and Quiet Riot are scheduled to play in Medina on March 19th. So look out for that show Jeff! :git:

18 bucks to see a has-been and a bunch of no-name openers? Sounds to me like you made the right decision not to go.

LOL, no kidding, I don't know what I would do if any of that were true! Sad thing, I actually paused for a bit wondering which I would be more pissed about missing, hot chicks throwing bras or Parasite City, but then I thought I can see a set of tits anytime...that's why they call computers "Naked Lady Machines"!

I guess not!

 

The thing that sucks is they are going to be in Fargo on March 18th too. I will be in St. Paul for the WCHA Final Five Hockey Tournament. I go every year. So, I am not sure if I will be at either show :angry2:

 

I know my wife will attend the show in Fargo on the 18th though.

    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
