. . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead w/Future of the Left, Bluebird Theater, Tues., 10/20/09 – Reverb
You couldn’t ask for a more apt pairing of bands than Tuesday’s Bluebird Theater lineup of …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and Future of the Left — particularly in size. Both feature overwhelming avalanches of pure volume, corrupted beautifully by strong melodies and ferocious rock rhythms. And both have a stage sound that can never be replicated on record. (OK — most bands are much better live than in the studio, but in this case the severity is akin to acute schizophrenia.)
And yet, there are many ways these two bands couldn’t be more different.
