I fuckin’ loved this show.

I was fortunate enough to catch the first stop on Mastodon’s headlining tour of the US last night at the Wiltern.  This tour is in support of their latest release, The Hunter, which is a 15-song masterpiece out on Reprise and in my opinion the best we’ve heard from them in years.  Mastodon did what was to be expected; played a tight, loud, heavy, unrelenting hour-long set to a packed and enthusiastic crowd.  Aside from watching a band like Mastodon, where it belongs, headlining a great venue, this is one of the most exciting hard rock/metal tours of the year, because of the incredible lineup that supports Mastodon.

Tomorrow is one of the year’s biggest days for new music releases.  Not included below is the massive Nirvana Nevermind reissue, which comes in varying forms of huge box sets to commemorate the album’s two-decade anniversary.

Blink 182— Neighborhoods

Fans of the pop-punk superstars have been awaiting a new album from Blink-182 ever since their highly-regarded return from hiatus.  The early release of single “Up All Night” showed that the group was pointing their sound in a different, perhaps more mature direction, so it’ll be interesting to hear the final product.
