The quality of the sound was better than on the albums. They opened with Panasonic Youth which was really awesome, the whole band was going nuts.

Sound: The singer was singing every song just like the albums, even the ones he didn't record. The 2 guitars were there, so were the bass and drums. The quality of the sound was better than on the albums. // 10

Perfomance: I enjoyed them very much. Before they started, they had a projection of a woman being hiptnotized in the old silent film way, at the end it counted up and said to open your eyes and the band walked on stage. They opened with Panasonic Youth which was really awesome, the whole band was going nuts. I think the next song was The Mullet Burden which they changed a bit from the studio version but it still sounded amazing. They kept playing songs from the album Miss Machine and closed with Sunshine the Werewolf, which is where the fun started. During the song, one of the guitarists (Ben Weinman) climbed up on one of the venues huge speakers. While he was up there, the singer grabbed a bottle of alcohol and a torch and started blowing fire. It was intense. After they got off stage we cheered for an encore and they played two songs off of their album Calculating Infinity. The first was The Running Board, which is one of my favourite songs of theirs. They finished with Jim Fear which sounded even better than the studio version (once again). // 10

Overall Impression: The concert was in Detroit, Michigan at Saint Andrews Hall, it was on the 3rd of December. The opener to the gig was a guy with a laptop and a Telecaster with a Roland synth pickup, he played it lefthanded and not strung upside down, he was called The Flashbulb. The next band was Horse The Band who played pretty awesome and were funny. The next band was Between the Buried and Me, they played about five or six songs, but they were each about 5-7 minutes each, all really impressive. What I loved about the show was finally being able to see The Dillinger Escape Plan after 2 years of listening to them. The tickets were 15 dollars US and the show was worth ever dollar. The most unforgettable moments were when the singer started blowing fire. I will definately go to their next gig when their in town, especially since their new albums gonna be out by then. // 10
