  • The Dear Hunter and Anthony Green

    Just saw them last night in Pittsburgh. Holy ****************. Totally blown away. HIGHLY suggest catching them on this tour if you haven't already. The Dear Hunter alone was worth it, but when they started backing up Green, things got pretty magical. I can honestly say I never listened to either much before last night, save for a bit of some Circa Survive, but I am a changed man. If you've got any kind of groovy prog-rock flowing through your veins, you'd be wise to make it out to one of the remaining shows in the next couple weeks. These dudes know how to rock.

    That is all.

      I love me some Circa Survive. Anthony Green's solo is all right, haven't listened to anything recent though. And I want to like The Dear Hunter, something's just not there for me The Receiving End of Sirens were cool.

        I saw Circa Survive a few years ago, but I really went to see Dredg who was opening for them. Dredg came out and played one of the most amazing sets I've ever seen. It was seriously like a religious experience, and I wasn't even that big of a Dredg fan before the show. But the scenester kids around me weren't that into it.

        Then Circa Survive came on and it was good, but IMHO didn't come close to the level of performance or musicianship of Dredgs' set. But of course all the scene kids were really into it and they got all the cool light show effects and confetti cannons and such.

        It kinda felt like Circa Survive was Dredgs' spoiled little brother. Dredg was better, but Circa Survive was younger and more doted upon so they got all the cool toys.

          You know, I keep hearing about Dredg and have yet to actually listen to them. Gonna check them out latorz.

          From the three times seeing Circa live, I can say they're either absolutely fantastic or unfortunately tame, and that usually rests upon Anthony Green (not saying the instrument-bearing members aren't awesome, cuz they are). He has a ton of stage presence and charisma, but if he's not feeling it that night, you miss out. Though I did miss out on confetti cannons

            I don't know I didn't think it was that tame, I just wasn't feeling it as much. It kind of paled in comparison to the awesome performance before them.

            Their stage production was pretty nuts though. They had screens of white LED's behind the band, confetti cannons, and they also dropped confetti from the ceiling during the encore.

              Alternative music doesn't exist. Shoegazer music has been dead since 1991. The only shoegaze music we ever did is maybe &quot;The Zenith&quot; from &quot;Silver&quot; -- even that wasn't current when it came out. Now, I hear bands that are doing what I tried to do four years ago -- stuff that wasn't current even at that time. I just want to be a decent songwriter, not a follower. <b>- Jason Martin, Starflyer 59, 1997</b>

                    That's actually video from the show I was at. That Raptor guy started biting people and they had to drag him out. Tragic really.

                      Yeah I looked them up on YouTube before I went and I thought the same thing.

                      Just downloaded all of their stuff and their earlier albums seem a bit lacking. Some cool stuff here and there, but not in the abundance of whatever newer stuff they played last night. They grooved the **************** out of the place, with lots of lovely delay-soaked guitar solos.

                      Can't say I like Anthony Green's solo stuff much either, but I think last night was his first show The Dear Hunter as his backing band, and it was absolutely fantastic. Should have bootlegged it. I'm kicking myself for not bringing my recorder.

                      And the whole place smelled like the most glorious barbecue I've ever come across. I've never had a rock concert make me so hungry.

                          Saw that same bill and thought exactly the same thing. Circa was good, but dredg had a flawless set.
