This past Friday, we had the pleasure of attending the Chevelle show at the Starland Ballrom in Sayreville, NJ. We have to first start off by saying, we do not dislike Halestorm but we were annoyed that Burn Halo opened the show and not Halestorm. Burn Halo rocked the place for about a half hour. Unfortunately for Burn Halo, the crowd was a complete bore and still walking in and trying to get their $5 bud lights. Regardless, they were great and we’re looking forward to them coming back around the area real soon.

Most female fronted bands don’t get much respect and Halestorm is no different. Our appreciation for the band was hurt by the short, feisty, pushy lesbians who kept trying to work their way to the front. The Audio Perv got into an argument with one of these said lesbians but let it go. It was great to see Halestorm write an original song that sounds like rip off Janis Joplin and try to cover it by segueing into “Take Another Little Piece of My Heart Baby.” Anyways, we kind of wish the $3 shot special lasted for all of Halestorm’s set instead of just before it.

Finally, Chevelle came on and a huge pit developed. The band was tremendous despite Pete seeming like he was a little out of it or sick. You can read reviews over at Chevelle Online. The band played most of their singles like “The Red,” “Send The Pain Below,” “Jars,” “Well Enough Alone,” a new song acoustic in the encore and closed with “I Get It.” We just wish that we had heard “Dos.” Anyways, check out our photos below and some cool videos from blainewad (who also took some awesome photos Thank you!)

On Thursday night, fun. played a sold out show at the Mercury Lounge in New York. They were incredible. Frontman Nate sang every song like it was his last and the crowd seemed much obliged to sing the songs back to him as well. Nate mixed in a couple songs from his old band, The Format, with songs off of fun.’s debut album, Aim & Ignite(iTunes, Amazon MP3, CD). Check out the setlist above the pics. (Btw, I took some cool videos but the audio is distorted. If anyone can recommend a program I can use, lemme know. Thanks!) Miniature Tigers were one of the opening bands. They were alright except for the lead singer making weird jokes and observations. Oh, and classy sweater buddy!

Last night, Metric, Phoenix and the Soft Pack made up one the best lineups of the year for a concert (that wasn’t a festival) when they played the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Gallows, the punk rock outfit from the U.K., may not be the first band you would predict to hit the gossip rags but that’s exactly where they ended up. When Harry Potter’s own Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) arrived in disguise to watch Gallows perform at the U.K.’s Reading Festival this past week, the band snapped a picture which ended up on People magazine’s website of all places. After watching Gallows rock Reading, Daniel and Rupert met up with Gallows front man Frank Carter, for a chat and some more photo opps in an outdoor VIP area.

Gallows will bring their ferocious live show back to the U.S. for two stints with rockers AFI in October and November and in between they will head to Canada with Flogging Molly.

The Audio Perv had the chance to catch Nine Inch Nails at Terminal 5 last night for the 3rd NYC show of NIN’s Wave Goodbye Tour. The Horrors opened and they were respectable but kind of forgettable. It was hot, sweaty and packed. NIN came on at around 9:05 and played for about 140 minutes. Peter Murphy from Bauhaus (BLAH!) was introduced by Trent Reznor as the guy who first took NIN on board into NYC many years ago. Murphy kind of scares us and his voice is as appealing as sitting on a pool cue. Anyways, we were in the back but managed to take a few photos and videos. Check ‘em out:

Third Eye Blind played the third night (August 9th) of the Java Rockin Land festival at Pantai Carnaval Ancol and declared “We are not afraid!” There had been several security concerns due to the tragic events of July 17th where hotel bombings resulted in several deaths and injuries. Vertical Horizon, Mr. Big, Mew and others also played the festival. Thanks to Herdi Sularko, we have some pics and a brief video of the show. We’re told that Third Eye Blind played some new tracks off of their upcoming album Ursa Major and closed with a Michael Jackson song as a tribute to the recently deceased pop song. (Could it be the Jackson 5′s “I Want You Back” that they’ve been covering?) Check out the photos below and go here to see the video. (P.S. These are the best photos that we could get so soon from a show in JAKARTA, INDONESIA so don’t hate people!)

Green Day played another packed show at Madison Square Garden in New York City tonight (7/28). They played for about 2 hours and 50 minutes, which was longer than the previous night’s performance at the same venue. We weren’t there for the first show but we do know that this one was filled with industry booking people like superagent Nick Storch. Anyways, the band played less than half of their new album 21st Century Breakdown(iTunes) leaving off what could’ve been crowd pleasing anthems like “Horseshoes & Handgrenades” and “Peacemaker.” The band did however play a healthy dose of classic hits off of Dookie(iTunes), Nimrod(iTunes), and American Idiot(iTunes). The show even featured crowd surfing by older fans (early 30s-ish) and performances by fans invited onstage. One female fan invited to play guitar took the opportunity to kiss lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong (the cops are checking her ID to see if she’s legal, jk). We don’t have the official setlist but we definitely remember the band playing “She”, “Welcome to Paradise”, “Brain Stew”, “Hitchin a Ride”, “Good Riddance”, “Jesus of Suburbia”, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “21 Guns”, “Know Your Enemy”, “Shout/Earth Angel”, an Operation Ivy song, “American Idiot”, “Macys Day Parade” and “Holiday.” Feel free to update the rest in the comments section (really tired right now). Like we said, we weren’t at the first night but we agree with Billie Joe when he said “the second night is always better!” Right on Billie Joe, enjoy the multitude of pics below the setlist or GO HERE.
