Tomorrow night I'm off to see The Dillinger Escape Plan opening for Deftones. Deftones put out one of my favorite albums from last year, and Dillinger is my favorite band, period.
This will be my 10th time seeing Dillinger in concert. There's really nothing quite like it. My first Dillinger show was back in 2004. It was a life changing experience to say the least. There's dozens of insane videos from Dillinger concerts on Youtube. This video I'm sharing today is a recent one, and shows why the current lineup just might be the best incarnation of Dillinger yet. I don't think their set tomorrow night, playing in front of a large crowd of "normal" folks, will be as wild, but watching this video gets me foaming at the mouth and filled with anticipation for their next headlining gig.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention this here blog is named after Dillinger Escape Plan's song, "Jim Fear." I kind of hinted toward this in my very first post but of course, nobody was around to read it back then.
