Anyone Live & Online
Posted on February 12, 2008Check it out!! The band have launched a brand new official site, and it is indeed rather gorgeous! What are you waiting for? Go to: www.anyoneden.com without delay! Be sure to post a hi to the guys on their new messageboard.
And from that site's messageboard, comes the first show review from the band's current tour in the US with Lennon & Speedealer. Thanks for the words, Z3N. Hey Lunatics! I had the honor of checking out Anyone in St. Paul, Minnesota just this past Friday night... February 22nd. The show was at a local venue called the Lab. I got to meet the guys, shake hands, and get autographs. It was definately a great time. The show started off with a local band named 7 Days Remain. Speedealer had to cancel for unknown reasons, but I was very happy to have the pleasure of seeing 7 Days jam out. They held the stage well with a nice power accompanied by some nice heavy groove. I have a feeling we may see some more from these guys in the future. All the band members had their own style that just brought together a good heavy mix. Our guys were up next. One of the best things about seeing the bands at an early show in their careers is, you get to watch them transform the stage. Anyone took the plain dark stage, and turned it into an acid trip playground... complete with lights and smoke effects. We already knew that we were going to see a real show before they even got started. I am a new fan to the music of Anyone. I just recently started listening to them when they hooked up with Roadrunner Records. I have to say that I am definately a fan for the long haul. Their music moves you and tugs you through some wild rides.... and many emotions. The energy that Riz puts into his vocals, and the stage presence will just blow you away. Along with the heavy chest rattling bass from Static, and the unrelentless crash and finesse of Ransom, this was the best act of the evening for me. I personally think their show was just too big for the small stage at the Lab... and maybe a little bit more than the sleepy town of St. Paul can handle! They just blew me away! The night ended with a killer set from Lennon. If you have not seen her live, she is definately an act to behold. She puts a lot of energy and passion into her music, and if you are not careful.... she will just plain mezmerize you! After their set, I got to chat with the guys. They hooked me up with some autographs and other good stuff, including their album. It is definately a must have! I listened to it a few times coming home on the plane, and I can definately say it is a great disc. My favorites are Don't Wake Me, Real, and of course... The Whole World's Insane! Might give you a little idea at how intense and powerful these guys play. I just wish that I had seen them in Cali, or somewhere that was a bit more hip to the sound! You guys rule! I am hoping to see your show again soon. Peace to you guys! Z3N
