Dillinger, moving in speeds unfathomable by the naked eye
Dillinger Escape Plan

The Dillinger Escape Plan played Irving Plaza as part of an ongoing tour to promote Option: Paralysis, their new LP due out this week on Season of Mist. Joined by DC's Darkest Hour, the tech-y Animals as Leaders, and the atrocious iwrestledabearonce, the band played a set that varied across their entire career to the backdrop of flashing coordinated LEDs. Both awesome and an eyesore, it went along with the band's blitzkreig set and malfunctioning computer aesthetic (maybe they got some tips from their friend Trent Reznor)... Incredible set from these greats.

Check out the video for DEP's "Farewell Mona Lisa", as well as some pics of DEP and Darkest Hour (Samantha missed the others) below...

What's funny is although iwrestledabearonce were the worst band of the night, they also had the best sound.

They must have given the soundguy some roofies, because after them it was just a muddled mess.

walked in for the end of dillinger's set after wolves in the throne room down the street. needless to say, was pleased. option paralysis is taking some getting used to tho.

I agree about the sound issues, but.... I'm not sure anyone on the floor could've possibly noticed. There's too much kinetic energy in the room to focus on anything other the bodies flying around the space.

one of the most violent shows/pits I've seen in NYC in quite some time.

And how awful was Darkest Hour? Most cliche bad metal band I've seen in some time. Didn't even bother being early enough for the other two.

I love DEP, but whenever he headline a tour they have the worst openers.

Im sure Dillinger Escape Plan was good but why do people feel compelled to wear a Ramones shirt when they play NYC? It's just too much of an outfit.

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

it makes no sense for them to deconstruct the entire TD North venue to play a show the next night ~50 miles south at an amphitheater (which probably would require a different stage setup anyway). They'd play Providence or Mohegan Sun before that (and I think those are both highly unlikely).
