Just got back from a show at the Whisky: Exmortus, Warbringer, Enforcer. On the seriously long drive home I was thinking about how my perceptions of bands change the first time I see them (much moreso than subsequent times). For example I had heard a coupe tracks of Enforcer on the web and thought they were pretty good. After seeing them live, no thanks! Definitely not a band for me. 3 out of 4 of them were not wearing shirts. Singer sounded like a girl compared to Exmortus and Warbringer. And they were so into themselves, just wouldn't get off the stage, saying "one more song" like 4 times. And still at the end they basically did the rock n roll equivalent of jazz hands. I can definitely post some more experiences of how my perceptions changed after seeing a band live, but I'll save that for later. I'm curious to hear yours.
