Alkaline Trio: UK (Southampton), November 15, 2005
The whole hall was a giant mosh pit for that song, and it was awesome. They played alot from Crimson, but they kept with the classics too.

Sound: Matt Skiba was on form, and Dan was sounding the best he ever has. Derek Grant was awesome as well. I went upstairs for a while and just watched him, he's amazing. The guitars were drowned out a bit by Dereks bass drum, so it was a bit hard to recognise what song it was at first, overall though it was amazing. // 10

Perfomance: When the piano intro of the first track (Time To Waste) came on, everyone was ready to go crazy, and boy did they. The whole hall was a giant mosh pit for that song, and it was awesome. They played a lot from Crimson (which is good), but they kept with the classics too. The only two songs they missed out inexplicably were Stupid Kid and Continental. The stage and lights setup was very dark, and the strobe lights were used perfectly. // 10

Overall Impression: It was on the 15th of Novemeber in Southmapton Guildhall, England. The first opener was a pathetic four-piece called Sickk Of Sunshine (yes, with 2 K's, losers) who got bottled. I'll give you an idea of what they were like, Nine Inch Nails minus Trent Reznor plus a very homo vibe. See? The second support came from a Chinese-American acoustic player called Mike Park who was in fact brilliant. He played everything perfectly, with his guitar sounding excellent. He was a definite releif from the awful SOS (oh the irony). But of course everyone was looking forward to the Trio, and they didn't dissapoint. // 10
