The Deftones Steal the Show

Deftones
Rave – Milwaukee, WI
4/29/2011

The Deftones are:

Chino Moreno – Vocals
Stephen Carpenter – Guitar
Frank Delgado – Samples, Keys
Abe Cunningham – Drums
Sergio Vega – Bass
Chi Cheng – Bass

The Deftones formed back in 1989 and they’ve released 6 albums so far.  They are currently on the road, performing to sold-out crowds, supporting their newest release off Warner Bros., Diamond Eyes.

Last night didn’t start off well.  Funeral Party took the stage to open the night.  They weren’t bad, but they weren’t all that entertaining, either.   There were several of us that scratched our heads trying to distinguish where songs stopped and began.  The crazy part is Funeral Party did a hell of a lot better than The Dillinger Escape Plan.  Let’s say there was quite a few of us hanging out in the lobby of the Rave trying to figure out what the hell we were listening to.  Picture a kitchen with a plethora of pots and pans hanging from the ceiling on hooks. Now picture them falling to the ground. That’s what The Dillinger Escape Plan sounds like. Really, try it at home!  I can do screamo, I am a fan of Suicide Silence, but at least Suicide Silence knows how to write music.  Last night was just a train wreck.

By the time The Deftones took the stage the sold-put crowd had piled into the Rave stage area.  They must have sold more tickets even after being sold-out, because fans, including myself, had to stand outside in the lobby and peer through the doors to see the concert.  Granted, the show was loud enough to do just that, but it was slightly disappointing.

Chino made everyone happy.  How can he not?  His vocals didn’t seem to let up as they played for roughly two hours.  I honestly didn’t stay for the entire show because it really isn’t fun to be squished in the lobby trying to enjoy a show, and it was quite difficult to hear all of Chino’s vocals when he wasn’t hitting his trademark screams.

Note to Deftones fans: If you are headed to a sold-out show, make sure you get there plenty early and mark your spot!

    HAHAHAHAHAHHA! This reviewer doesn’t know genius when its hitting him in the face. Dillinger Escape Plan is one of the most brilliant, fantastic, visceral, and amazing bands of our generation. Them, and Converge. That he even compares DEP to the crap that is Suicide Silence proves his musical ignorance. Dillinger is literally one of the greatest live bands of all time. YOU. ARE. STUPID.

  2. HAHAHHAHAH! They really did suck last night. It wasn’t good. Just because a band jumps around onstage doesn’t mean they are good.

  3. Nikki says:

    i do have a feeling your taste is music is suspect, if you are referencing Suicide Silence as a band that writes good music. Ah well, more Dillinger for me!

  4. kidzord says:

    Yeah, you dont “get” Dillinger, they don’t want you as a fan anyway.

  5. frnknstn says:

    Does anybody know what bands were playing on the side stage at The Rave that night?

Speak Your Mind
