Hey all (if anyone is really there!)…
As per my previous post on the subject, I went up to Edmonton on February 25th, 2007 to see a Wolfmother concert with my good friend, Clint.
Well, The Wolfmother show has come and gone and I was blown away. I have seen anywhere from 40-50 concerts in my life (so far), and I have to say that this show ranks in the top 5. They rocked from beginning to end with an energy that was infectious.
The show was general admission, and with the help of a good friend, we made it to within about 15 feet of the stage and had a pretty good view of the show. Aside from some large screens that the show was projected on, the light show was very basic, but that did nothing to detract from what was coming going on on the stage… and that was some old school Rock N’ Roll of a type that seems so very rare now…
Anyway, they started their set off with the song, Dimension and never looked back. Partway through the show the lead singer commented on playing in the World’s Largest Mall, and that he had seen a flamingo for the first time, and that it just happened to be in said mall. Then he toasted to the flamingo and continued on in to some more rock. A power trio, these boys from Australia sound like they’ve been doing this kinda’ thing for 20+ years.
A great show. If I get the opportunity, I would definitely see them again.
Next stop: Black Sabbath!!! (Yeah, yeah, I know: they’re using the name Heaven and Hell…but that doesn’t fool anyone).
