Lets talk about music concert. Lots of one ive been going to.
The best ones i can recall is Deftones live in Kuala Lumpur 2010, i was moshing my ass out inside the unfinished club building full with angry-sweaty metalheads. For 200 plus ringgit concert, sound quality was awful and the venue is just not right. This was obvious when the opening band performed . But when Deftones starts reving the guitar, crowd were going mental . All in my head was “Fuck, its Engine number fucking 9, imma throw my body in the moshpit”. Sound quality? what sound quality ?
Great concert works like that, the band will screw with your state of mind and bring the songs emotion out of you. I was perfectly happy in the concert but i just couldnt help the urge to punch somebody in the face when Deftones performed. Yesterday, i had the same experience. Not with Deftones, but with Efek Rumah Kaca (ERK). Not anger but the helpless gloom and infinite sadness chilling to my spine.
