Chevelle came through Manhattan last week so there was No way I was missing this show. This band started it all for me over a decade ago (trying hard not to feel old right now, lol)
Anyways, back in high school, I didn’t know anything about hard rock or metal aside from the Pop stuff Linkin Park was up to. Chevelle’s song “The Closure” changed it all for me, I’d never heard anything like it and wanted more immediately. Ever since, I’ve caught them at least once on any annual tour they’ve done and am thrilled to see they’re still making music after 15 years. *Can we take a moment to appreciate all the artists out there who actually sound as good live as they do on the album?* Yes!
The show at Terminal 5 in Manhattan was a great set, featuring some old and new songs. The band ended a little abruptly though and it definitely surprised the crowd. Not sure if that was just a time constraint or what but it left the majority of crowd begging for an encore that never came. I was also surprised to see so much crowd surfing- now that my people are getting older and considering this was still hard rock, I hadn’t expected anyone to attempt such expression. Must have been all that good music 🙂
I really look forward to these guys staying in the scene for years to come and hope they head back this way soon. xoxo #blkglrswurld
