Feed Me @ The Brick

Let me start off by saying the night ended with me getting my car towed.  The following morning I fainted, hit my head, and cracked a tooth.  This is all unfortunate obviously, but even more so since I had an awesome time at the Feed Me show.  From the start, I was really nervous about this show.  Mainly due to the fact that it was the 3rd concert at The Brick, and the first one was a disaster.  Plus, going to a new place that I've never been to, by myself, in downtown on a Friday night, I wasn't sure what I was in for.  But to my surprise I found an amazing parking spot, almost across the street from the venue.  This was a great start for sure.  (It wasn't until after the show I realized it turned into a tow-away zone at 11.  I got there at 10.)  

Once inside, I immediately saw why there was so much negative feedback about the first show here.  Luckily, it wasn't nearly as packed and those issues weren't issues at all at this show.  I was there early enough to check out some of Bro Safari's set which I thought was great.  He dropped Dipo's 'Express Yourself', which got the crowd really going.  Then Kill the Noise followed with a pretty solid blistering set.  It seemed like he had a few technical issues, but with all the bass, sometime's it was hard to notice if the sound was accidental or on purpose.  In any case he played it off like a pro.  Finally, Feed Me came on and did not disappoint.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I danced almost the entire set.  Not only did his set sound great, but that stage setup is pretty amazing.  I don't know if it was the same, or at least I didn't get a good look at it at Lollapalooza, but it's amazing close up.  

This is one of those shows that I wished I had my wife, a few friends, or both to go with.  I think anyone would have had a great time, out on a Friday night, dancing their asses off.  Even if you had to drive me to the impound lot the next day.
