Thou @ The Bell House
Thou

As discussed, Wolves In The Throne Room played their first of two NYC dates with Thou on Monday night (9/12) at The Bell House. Pictures and video from the show are in this post, and the pair do it again TONIGHT (9/14) at Death By Audio with Mutilation Rites. Advance tickets are sold out, but additional tickets will be available at the door.

Krallice supported at The Bell House, and the band will play one of their final dates of the year at Union Pool on Saturday (9/17), when they join Urfaust/Black Anvil as part of a trio of dates.

URFAUST & BLACK ANVIL - 2011 TOUR DATES
9/16 @ Golden West in Baltimore w/ Krallice & Oak (!)
9/17 @ Union Pool in Brooklyn w/ Krallice & Ruin Lust
9/18 @ Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia w/ Endless Humiliation
Did anyone catch Endless Humiliation with Raspberry Bulbs at Lit on 9/12?

The Urfaust show is one of two BrooklynVegan presented heavy shows taking place this weekend, with 40 Watt Sun hitting Public Assembly on 9/16 with the recently added Woe. In related news, 40 Watt Sun was added to Roadburn Fest 2012 with Agalloch and Sólstafir. The bands join the already confirmed appearances from d.USK (aka diSEMBOWELMENT), Voivod, Sleep, Saviours and Om.

the dudes who were moshing at this show should be fucking killed. talk about ruining the vibe...

"...TONIGHT (9/16) at Death By Audio..."

The part in bold should be 9/14 instead of 9/16.

Sucks that I have to miss this. At least I can catch Krallice on Saturday.

Hahahah what vibe? You must be delusional.

I am so about to get my hummus vibe on.

"The hummus vibe" is taking over my soul.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 1:17 PM

there will be no hummus at this show....only sausage

does anyone have the set times for last night's show? I've got a time machine and want to go back to see it.

Sorry that not everyone wants to stand around sipping beer and nodding their heads while fucking Thou is playing.

Anyone who likes sausage should never see how it's made.

2:22 - you're fucking right, and 12:27 proves that there are hipster metal guys who think they aren't hipsters.

great lead photo

@ 2:22 and 2:53

Contrary to what you may think, there are people (metal and non-metal), who actually go to shows to enjoy the music. Not all of us want to punched and pushed around.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 4:55 PM

Yeah, fuck the moshing shit. It's stale and childish and most of the people that do it are jock assholes just looking to hurt someone. The majority aren't into it so it's time to start beating on the moshers and give them what they're looking for. Time to take back the gigs so we can all enjoy them.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 5:12 PM

Sorry, we didn't all get the memo about how we're supposed to stand around looking like we would rather be somewhere else while attending a show.

I like to close my eyes and imagine I'm at home sitting on the couch listening to the the music while imagining I'm at the show standing around complaining about people moshing at a metal show.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 7:02 PM

The same people complaining about people dancing at metal shows are the same people that complain about too many photographers at shows... in response to a set of photos from the show.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 7:29 PM

Maybe you could wear spike covered gauntlets to keep people from bumping into you. Oh never mind. That's totally not something that people traditionally do at metal shows.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 8:36 PM

That is a tremendous photo. Kudos to the photographer!

4:55 just stand there right in front and meditate. That'll get the band pumped to put on a good show. Dork.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 9:09 PM

Damn no, I'm not gonna do that, you jittering pissbucket.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2011 9:31 PM

From Wolves in the Throne Room's Wikipedia page:

The band hates moshing and violence at their shows because they see their music as meditative rather than aggressive. Aaron Weaver has stated that he wants people to “lay on the floor and cry.”

Wow. I thought you were making that up. Glad I skipped this one too. At least he put "moshing" and "violence" in 2 different categories.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2011 8:40 AM

What happened to people? Nobody can enjoy themselves anymore (regardless of how) without pissing someone off it seems.

Glad I don't have to deal with you people on a regular basis.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2011 9:28 AM

That may be true about WitTR, but the original anti-mosher here could only have been referring to the moshing during Thou, since there wasn't any real moshing during WitTR's set at the Bell House (although there was at Death by Audio).

And, as far as I can tell, Thou fucking loves it when the audience is enjoying themselves.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2011 2:51 PM

When WITTR played at NYU a year or two ago, vocalist stopped and told people to stop moshing. There's clips on youtube of another time. And I agree. I could fuck up every single one of you twats, and I'm still against moshing.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2011 3:19 PM

None of you have any right to tell anyone else how they should "enjoy" music. Some people do it standing around, some like to be in motion, not even moshing but moving around. Grow up.
