Bad Brains @ Irving Plaza

"OMG. I felt incredible atmosphere from whole stage all the way. H.R. looked like getting old and not shouted no act like ancient himself but perfect. i thought again Bad brains is still living legend. Finally I was smashed and remember a part of thing only."
[EYD blog]
Bad Brains played their first of two shows at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza in NYC last night (11/5). One election-night earlier they played a hometown show in DC. Tonight they do it again in NYC with Rival Schools opening. This weekend they can be found at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin. More pictures from last night below...

What was it like?? Please give details as I am wondering if I should pay illegal scalper for entrance to legendary alive band performance.

If it's anything like the last few show I saw, the band is absolutely awesome, and HR is absolutely awful. If you can focus your attention on the band, it is totally worth seeing.

Anyone from last night know when BBs came on?

Posted by Anonymous | November 6, 2008 3:25 PM

Bad Brains definitely came on after 10PM last night. Killing Time took stage ~9:30PM and played for 30min. I didn't look at watch, but I'd guess 10:30PM.

as a man who has felt the boot of babylon, as the Man forced him to record his vocals from the D.C. holding cells... H.R. must have a special empathy for victims of the Bedford Ave police-riot. Banned in BK!

Last night BB's opened with 'Attitude' and it blew my mind! First time seeing Bad Brains. HR is def old as hell, but they sounded amazing! Reignition was the best song of the night! It was good to see Rival Schools perform again.
