Roadrage Ripping Up Vienna
Posted on February 12, 2008We have such jet-setting e-teamers... following on from UK teamer Steve's US report on Sinch and Stone Sour, here's a recent writeup on the Roadrage Tour in Vienna, by our very own teamer Oli Porter. Thanks for the words Oli!
Hi guys, just thought I'd let you know how great the Roadrage show in Vienna was!! Considering the venue was a former slaughterhouse and smaller than the London Garage to boot, all three bands went down really well.
I managed to find the gig just as 36 Crazyfists came on stage, they sounded great, just as good as the CD! After the set I was having a drink at the bar when I met Tom the drummer from Killswitch Engage, which was cool, he said he would try and remember to tell Kirsten I said hi but we both decided that he would forget!
Five Pointe 0 were up next, they went down like a storm with the crowd who started a bit of a mosh pit although when I joined in they all looked scared and decided they had had enough of that! Halfway through the set I went back to the bar where I had the pleasure of meeting Brock from 36 Crazyfists. He is one cool guy, I got some pictures which I'll email when they get developed!
The band of the night though were undoubtably Killswitch Engage, opening with Numbered Days the guys proceeded to put on one of the best shows I have seen in a long time finishing with My Last Serenade after which singer Howard was really moved by the crowds reaction that they even played an impromtu encore, seeming reluctant to leave the stage as the Austrian crowd screamed for more.
All in all an amazing gig, we hung out with some of the guys from all three bands at the bar and they are really looking forward to the London show! I wish I could be there!
