Saw Grips last week.
Much bigger venue than the first time they came. Crowd was very different too.
Initially I wasn't up for the pit (really tired and I had expected to encounter a lot of assholes in it) but the sound was asstastic, so the only way I was going to enjoy myself is if we got into the pit.
However, the pit was kinda lame, a few tools in there and everyone's timing was bad.. it was a drunk pit. All ages show.
Only me and one other guy in my area seemed to know any lyrics.
I read a few times how Ride was going great with stamina and such for the whole set, but he definitely slowed down a handful of times, even on lines I would have expected more energy behind. I think my expectations were not realistic. That part felt familiar as the first time I saw them however here they played straight through for 80 mins.
I don't think I'd bother seeing them in a big venue again if they're going to do the same style of live show.
So yet again the best pits I have been in, are still, at Sleigh Bells shows. (admittedly, my pit experience game is weak).
