Had a great day yesterday. Went to see Monster Magnet play Effenaar (Eindhoven). In the afternoon, because of the WK football. Which was quite strange, but in the end it turned out great, since it’s quite a journey by train. The show itself was great, a bit shocking to see what age and rehab have done to Dave though. But he sounded great, and that’s what matters. They played a lot of classic Monster Magnet songs and, to my surprise, no songs from the new album.
I can tell you this though, I’ll be very happy when the smoking ban goes into effect next week. I’ve so had it with coming home smelling like an ashtray. And since I’m in old lady mode, why does every show I’ve attended recently have to be so damn loud. My ears still haven’t recovered now, more than a day later. I don’t remember that ever happening before and I’ve seen quite a few shows in my time. I’m now actually considering getting custom earplugs.
Anyhow, that’s enough complaining. I’ll shut up now and play some Monster Magnet. You can try the Forum for comments and photo’s.
The setlist was as follows: Dopes To Infinity, Crop Circle, Powertrip, Twin Earth, Third Alternative, Zodiac Lung, Radiation Day, The Right Stuff, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Space Lord // Superjudge, Cage Around the Sun, Tractor, Spine O God
