Wish I could be there. They put on a great show. I'll never forget the first time I saw them at Briarpatch back in '06 I believe. They did a tribut to Jerry Garcia. Sick show.
NO!......Welp!?

Having friends in high (or low) places pays off once in a while. I have two friends that are in Slipknot, so I caught the show for free last night. I would say I am not qualified to be called a maggot, but the show was very entertaining. Here are some stats:
1. There were a little over 6000 people there which brought the net # of piercings to 58,000. (Yikes)
2. $6.00 a beer eliminated any chance I had of being drunk for the show.
3. There were at least 50 people that had their shirts off that should NEVER have their shirt off in public.

If you are not a metal head in any way, you probably wouldn't have liked the show. Coheed and Cambria were good.

I've been to a few Slipknot shows, when I really enjoyed them while in college, and would not consider myself a "Maggot". Many think that anyone who enjoys them is a "maggot", but after you go to a show you see what a true "maggot" is and why they are called that ...... not a good thing.

Coheed and Cambria great!!

I just cannot see the appeal of Coheed and Cambria. I know ALOT of people like them...but that guys voice drives me nuts. It's like a woman who's getting her testicles stepped on.

Slipknot in Des Moines would have been cool to see. Only 6000 people?

Yeah,

I was a little surprised at the number considering it is their home show. I can say that I have been at shows with three times as many people that weren't as loud. 99% of that 6000 was makin some noise.

$39.50 for a ticket ( I assume before service fees, taxes, etc). That would keep me away from most artists. F-in rediculous

I'm sure that has something to do with it.

But my theory is that as time goes by, the types of music become splintered into so many sub-genres, that the market for any given genre simply doesn't have the fan base to fill an arena.

If a given type of music does become popular on a bigger scale, take jam bands for instance, there are so many copy cats that they saturate the market, and make it difficult for any one, or few bands to rise to the top.

Aside from putting together a tour, or show with several similar bands, there just aren't that many "super groups" out there anymore that have the pulling power, and broad demographic appeal to fill large venues.

These guys and girl, have gotten A LOT better since I saw them last. The second set was friggin great. Lots of psychodelic, STS9-esqu base lines, and driving I've never heard out of a "bluegrass" band. I think every song they played was fast. Lots up build up and release type jams.

Watch for them to make a bigger name for themselves. Oh by the way, I'd like to fiddle, with the fiddle-er....

Oh, and is there an abundance of shrooms out there or what? I swear half the people in the place were melting their faces off.
