If all you know of Omar is the talented but quiet guy off to the side on all those ATDI reunion shows, that dude has been replaced by a beast wearing a guitar. Something about these news songs has lit a fire under him, and watching him shred was a sight to see. His work on “Dominoes Fall” was incredible, with its big Guitar Hero worthy solo being the standout moment of the show.

Cedric held up his end of the bargain, sounding pretty solid for a guy who spent the better part of his younger years screaming his lungs out. He still knows how to command an audience, still has those funky dance moves and still knows when to stop and let the crowd sing their hearts out. [Houston Press]

Following the end of the At the Drive-In reunion and the breakup of The Mars Volta, Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López have joined forces for yet another band, Antemasque. That band put out their debut album this year and recently wrapped up a tour with Omar’s pals Le Butcherettes in support of it. The tour hit NYC for three shows and also hit other cities including Houston (where the above review is from) and Chicago, where the pictures in this post are from.
