5:10-5:40pm Pig Destroyer
6:00-7:00pm High On Fire
Mastodon played the Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta on Saturday (2/28). Their set included three new jams including the single "Divinations" (which has a newly released video below) as well as some old favorites like "The Wolf Is Loose", "March of The Fire Ants", "Iron Tusk", and "Colony of Birchmen" (unconfirmed set list from 2/28 below). Unlike in Brooklyn last year, Mastodon went on after Neurosis who are a hard act to follow, so Mastodon followed the proverb "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" and invited Scott Kelly of Neurosis on stage to perform their last three songs with them.
Mastodon is scheduled to play two nights in NYC in May, as part of their tour where they'll be performing the entire Crack The Skye album. The NY dates are May 9th at Irving Plaza (on sale Saturday at noon) and May 10th at Music Hall of Williamsburg (on sale Saturday at noon).
Along for the ride is Kylesa and Intronaut, both of whom had to drop off the previously mentioned tour with The Haunted and Nachtmystium (tickets for that BB Kings show on April 19th are here - The Agonist and Merauder are the new openers)
(not sure what the deal on refunds is).
