Post-hardcore legends At The Drive-In played their first live show in 11 years last night, after their much anticipated reunion in January.
The performance at Red7 in Austin, Texas, prompting many fans who were unable to buy a ticket to climb nearby trees and rooftops to catch a glimpse of the band, according to NME.
It was the first of three sold out dates in their home state, which will serve as a warm-up for their headline spot at Coachella this weekend.
Some fans have expressed discontent at singer Cedric Bixer-Zavalas for singing instead of shouting during their set. It is believed that he wants to avoid damaging his voice which is a critical part of The Mars Volta, which he fronts with At The Drive-In guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Other fans defended his singing, saying it sounded perfect to those who attended.
The band appeared to be more relaxed about their famously uptight rules on crowdsurfing, judging by YouTube videos of the event. During their heyday around the year 2000, at a time when their ferocious live shows were earning them worldwide fame, they were known to stop performing if mosh-pits emerged in the audience.
