My 2nd FAVORITE band of all time – (hed) p.e. – on tour and weeks away from dropping their album Insomnia. They hit the stage all in scarves covering their faces and opening with a brand new song no one had heard (Madhouse) – SO EVIL SOUNDING AND SICK!!! That was perhaps the SKETCHIEST feeling at the opening if a concert I have ever experienced. I thought we were all going to die and go straight to hell – it felt like he was channeling the devil himself in that vocal delivery. LOVED IT!! Openers were Authority Zero, Mower and Villebillies. Now its not often that I geek out over an unknown opening band, but let me tell ya – Villebillies are the SHIZZ – an 8-man band that blends Bluegrass, Rock and Hip-Hop. I promise you haven’t heard anything like them. I now am a rabid fan!
Skindred did only two shows in the US in Spring 2006, one of them being at the House of Blues in Orlando. They were heading back into the studio, finally wrapping up touring for the Babylon debut album. I can’t find any information about opening band, but I remember going with Joe and his clan. Skindred is a crazy, fun band…hard not to enjoy their shows regardless of how well you know their songs. I found the set list posted online for this show:
Bruises, Firing The Love, Set It Off, World Domination, Selector, (new song?), Pressure, Start First, Babylon, The Fear, Nobody
Another brutal all-day dirt-fest in the hot sun in Orlando! The bands taking the stages at Earthday Birthday this year were Mudvayne, Rob Zombie, Staind, Shinedown, Lacuna Coil, Nonpoint, Trapt, Hinder, Evans Blue, and Faktion. Always a hot mess at the all day festivals. Skipping the pics…can’t find any relevant to this concert.
