Me, Jesse, Doug, Nick, and Andrew used a billing of both of these awesome bands as an excuse to make a road trip to Philly. On the way there we did some random things such as eat cheese steaks at Gino’s and visited the famous Bomb Bomb bar.
At around 7:30, we got to the venue for the first band of the night.
I was very excited to see Death Grips finally after knowing them since Exmilitary came out. Doug and Jesse were both very excited being big fans as well (with them being Jesse’s favorite band). They did not speak a word during the entire set, knocking out over 20 songs in 45 minutes.
They didn’t run out of energy for a second and played so many great songs such a “Takyon,” “Guillitine,” “No Love,” “I’ve Seen Footage” and “Fever. ” They stole the show and even Andrew – who hates hip hop liked the set.
Ministry’s set was decent but could have been better.
They played mostly stuff from the Last Sucker and onward – an era I’m not a fan of. However, they did sound pretty awesome when playing later songs like “NWO,” “Just One Fix” and “Lies, Lies, Lies.”
We left an hour into their set due to being so far from home in addition to them not playing a lot of their classic tracks (seriously no “Stigmata”????).
All and all, Ministry did fine but Death Grips owned the night!!
