I'm never late to shows. I'm generally one of the first people in line. Call me nerdy, but when I pay to see a band, I want to actually see them.

I'm never late to shows. I'm generally one of the first people in line. Call me nerdy, but when I pay to see a band, I want to actually see them. So when my previously canceled date, who lives 45 miles out of the city, called me an hour before doors opened to tell she could make it after all but needed a ride, I was conflicted. Being the nice fellow that I am, I drove in rush-hour traffic to pick her up and ending up missing the first five bands of the Metalliance Tour. So, apologies to Atlas Moth, Red Fang, Howl, Intronaut and, especially, Kylesa. I'm sure you were all great.
Before the Metalliance tour, the last metal show I attended was the Dethklok/Mastodon/Converge/High on Fire Tour of late 2009, so it's been a good 18 months. When you go to to punk shows in the same city, you see a lot of the same faces after a while. Going to a metal show is a different vibe, but it still has its own sense of community. In their own way, the metal community are just as friendly as the punk community. It was great to see people helping fallen mosh pit patrons up, and not witnessing any fights all night was a very pleasant surprise as well. Even though I missed a few of the bands, I still very much enjoyed my experience at the Metalliance tour, and plan on paying to see any of the bands I saw again next time they roll through town.
