As you know, Alkaline Trio is one of my favorites!  Give us a full report!  Let us know if the drummer still rocks!

You won't be seeing any hurricane evacuees with that t-shirt... It's too cool.... Smiley

The drummer, Tom Marzella, told me that in high school, Mike Skill used to take his band "The Slicks" around to see concerts in the area.  2 of the band members (Dan Miller & Jim Currie) went on to become a part of "Goober & the Peas". I can't remember, but I think Tom told met that Jim took lessons with Mike. Smiley

I just took a look at the Goober & the Peas website...

If you get a chance, watch the video "Hot Women (Cold Beer)"  I think I see where the Romantics got inspiration for their Red and Black poster (with the silhouettes)... :-D

I knew they were friends, but I didn't know he lived in your house!  It's always good to have a drummer in the basement, banging away at all hours.  I expect nothing less than a glowing review--I've seen the kid play and I was knocked out.

Brew, you are hilarious!!
He and my son rented my house from me.  I had moved elsewhere!
I will pass along your compliments to him though.

alkaline trio is an unearthed group of talented guys.  especially the drummer!  seriously though, he is one of the best i have ever seen.
they had a few glitches in their sound and had a shortened set but they sounded great! (if you like that type of music)
the crowd was obviously there to see my chemical romance so trio got a lukewarm reception which was unfortunate because they blew "romance" away.  as it turned out, my chemical romance were headlining so they were really showcased.  all in all though, it was a great night and i had a blast!

Was the Trio still all devil worshipy? I really dig their old stuff(espically the song 'Radio') but their whole new(well not quite new but still) Satan worshiping deal has turned me off of them.

My Chemical Romance, while an OK band, sucks live. I saw them at Warped Tour and it sounds like a mass of sound not music.

andrew, i had to defer to my son on this one since he and the drummer are buddies.
here is his response:

"the trio is not devil worship-y at all.  they just use a lot of images like crosses and skeletons, etc.  they're not the first band to do it.  the misfits used skulls and skeletons in the late 70's and early 80's and no one ever called them devil worshippers.  i'd call it more of a horror image, than anything.but i do agree that my chemical romance is not good live."

I haven't seen any devil-worshipy stuff from the Trio.  That would turn me off, too.  They do have alot of death related themes, and cross and blood and horror  imagery, but I don't see any satanic stuff.

But the guitar player is a card carrying member of the Church of Satan and wanted the last CD to be called Church and Destroy. I'm just not a big fan of the whole Satan thing... I dunno I still say I prefer old school 'Trio.
