BRMC Howl tour

I caught their DC show last night at the 930 club, good god these guys are pros. Whoever it was that started a thread lamenting some bands lack of a "spiritual experience" needs to check this band out when they come to your town. The new stuff had soul and the older stuff rocked and they pulled it all off magnificently. At $15 it was easily the best live music value I've had in a long time.

I wonder if some of their long time reverb-addict fans are staying away due to the gospel elements, it didn't sell out and I had no problem getting as close to the stage as I wanted. Maybe it was the fact that they came to town about six months ago.

Anyone else seen them or plan to see them on this tour?

i saw them about a year or so ago, i guess. they came back to the same club, and i was really hoping i could go (my memory of the other show is kind of impaired by the fact that i spent most of their set looking for my keys. i lost them during one of the opening band's sets), but it either happened already and i had to work, or it's going to happen soon and i have to work. work sucks.

I've been a fan since the beginning and think Howl is the bees knees. It makes me cry it's so beautiful. I've seen the tour twice now, including the NYC show this past Saturday. Even managed to meet the guys last fall - very sweet.

You're absolutely right - they are pros. Why they aren't huge is beyond me. This is one band I could see once a week and never ever tire of. Just fantastic.

I saw them in a small club 2 years ago, and they did impress. I was a big fan of their first album. I got into it when I was abroad in Rome in '02, and have been a fan ever since.

I def. think you all should see them now

Argh! I knew I should have made the trip to see them when they were in Minneapolis! I hate living in the middle of nowhere and having to drive two or three hours to see bands I actually care about.

brmc put on a great show (and 930 in dc is a great place to see a show). i saw them in chapel hill 3 years ago and it was most excellent. i don't think they get the popularity they deserve either, though it is nice to see such an awesome band up close in a small club.

i couldn't agree more!
saw them here in pittsburgh on valentine's day, and boy do they kick ass. they took a few of the 'howl' tunes on a helluva ride, delivered the rest with sweetness and passion.
yep, they're pros. should be the standard bands are measured by - solid songs, solid structures, good words, great performers, great players. really no negatives. one of the greats...

Any other band that I know of that would try to pull off a live show like that, much less an album like Howl, would look like a bunch of posers.

I rented the music documentary Dig for a second time last weekend because I could barely remember what Peters' role was in the Brian Jonestown Massacre (he only has like two speaking lines in the movie). Although the movie gives the false impression that he was in the band longer than he really was, he sure did pay his rock n roll dues there.

I should have gone when I had the chance a couple of weeks ago. A friend's cousin is in the band (I have no idea which one he is) and apparently I could have hung out on the tour bus with rock stars. Hopefully I can hang out on the bus with rock stars later this spring, lol.

I saw them in Austin in October and they're coming back with Elefant in March. Already got my ticket, I've been a fan since their first LP. They are brilliant live and Howl is extremely underrated. Elefant is great too

Oh god - you should have! I've met them and they are so nice! Peter and Robert are very in person too.
