Coliseum

After an awesome show the night before at Public Assembly, Coliseum played a second show in Brooklyn at Union Pool last night/Sunday (5/15), this time with The Austerity Program, The Year is One, and Masakari who was added to the bill late on Saturday night, and ended up playing four shows during their two-night NYC stay (Public Assembly, ABC No Rio, and C-Squat as well).

If you missed Coliseum last night or Saturday, it may be some time before you catch them again. Guitarist/vocalist Ryan Patterson announced that this tour would be their last for a while, as the band is taking some time to focus on their follow-up to their well-crafted LP House With A Curse.

Seeing Coliseum twice this past weekend confirmed what I already knew, that this Louisville band has a deep and varied catalog that not only destroys, but also challenges. Coliseum could easily churn out record after record of well-crafted by-the-books d-beat, but they want more. And with their excellent songwriting, I think they'll get it. It'll be interesting to see where Patterson & the boys take it next.

Can't believe they didn't play "Watch The Tapes."

the guy in the lead photo has an illegal stash of hummus up his bum and is trying to hold it in so the crowd won't see it and become restless (and hungry), but is starting to fail.

The Maskarra guy has a matching red and black tattoo with his black and red t shirt.

One good "post rock" group.. and a bunch of metal bands again. It's like Charlie Brown getting rocks every damn Halloween.
