Godspeed You! Black Emperor @ Metro Theatre

Godspeed You! Black Emperor are monumental and monumentally important to me. And I never, ever actually thought I would ever get to see them live. Especially after they went on an hiatus. But there I was last Tuesday night seeing them live for the fourth time. This time at the Metro Theatre and it was everything you would expect. Epic, huge, grandiose, powerful. You get it. Also this time louder than seemingly before. But again, huge. As is their want they would concentrate on their latest album. This being 'Luciferian Towers', the highlight being the impossibly beautiful 'Anthem For No State'. Then they got to the 'hits'. And when you play 'Moya' and 'BBF3' back to back then a beautiful and surreal world opens up to everyone lucky to be in attendance. For nearly two hours nine musicians of considerable talent and unyielding purpose played with a conviction that I honestly believe no other band on Earth contains.

Set List
Hope Drone
Bosses Hang
Anthem For No State
