Valient Thorr @ Bowery Ballroom

Long hair, chest hair, facial hair, and even ass hair, Chris described Friday night's show (July 25, 2008) at Bowery Ballroom as one of the most energetic shows he's seen...that there just weren't very many people at (relatively speaking - Bowery Ballroom holds 600 people). Maybe everyone was at Ween? (maybe Valient Thorr just isn't that great) (then again, Chris said they were awesome) (Monotonix playing like 5 shows that week was probably a factor too...).

Valient Thorr was the headliner. Their next NYC show will be opening for Motorhead. The rest of the pics from their Bowery set are below....

Anon 1:57pm, you say that like people aren't allowed to bring skateboards to shows. I don't think it could've been parked somewhere...

Great show, great photos.

I didn't realize people were allowed to bring skateboards into shows figuring that could be considered a weapon or something..Can you bring in 10 speeds as well??

Anything could be considered a weapon Anon 2:11. I guess they let him in with it. A bike can be parked somewhere, so I'm not sure if security would let that in, plus given its size and the space restrictions I doubt it, but who knows.

I've tried to like Valient Thorr, both live and on record. But you know what, it's just not a very good band. There are PLENTY of better bands in the current metal revival. Gates of Slumber, for starters...
