Still flying high from the show. Don't feel like saying much...just want to bask in the glow of the show some more.

But Chris, I will say this...we got an extra song! They have been doing three song encores on this tour. Well, whether it was because of the California fires or something else, Alex came out by himself at the beginning of the encore and sang a song they have played only three times in their history and for the first time on this tour: "My Boat Is Sinking"!

Fucking awesome show. Once again, the Black Angels melt my mind.

My Boat isSinking...wow ! That's sick, love that tune!  Just Alex on acoustic?

 

Just Alex playing one of Christian's Fender Jaguars. Very special moment.

Not many clips on YouTube from the show I went to last month. Everyone too busy rockin' to bother with their smartphones. There is only this video of "Black Grease" from the Mayan Theatre concert.

The setlist for the October 18 2017 Mayan Theatre show:

1. Currency

2. Bad Vibrations

3. Prodigal Sun

4. I Dreamt

5. Medicine

6. Hunt Me Down

7. Black Grease

8. Grab As Much (As You Can)

9. Half Believing

10. Sniper At the Gates of Heaven

11. I'd Kill For Her

12. You On the Run

13. Comanche Moon

14. Life Song

Encore:

15. My Boat Is Sinking - Alex Maas solo w/ guitar

16. Death March

17. Bloodhounds On My Trail

18. Young Men Dead

A perfect setlist. Which makes it a perfect time to see them in concert if you haven't before. You are getting the crème de la crème from all their albums. See them pronto!

Now that the year is almost over, "Death Song" still is my odds-on pick to finish #1 on my Top 10 Albums of 2017 list. Only Grizzly Bear's "Painted Ruins" and Thee Oh Sees "Orc" is in the running.

I think "Death Song" has also moved to the top of my favourite Black Angels album list...ahead of "Passover" and "Phosphene Dream".

The band that makes Greta Van Week pointless. Great photos. I'd love to take LSD to this show. Good to see "Yellow Elevator" back in the set.
