The Blackheart

Sorne at The Blackheart, Round Two.  I was excited.  Supposedly the show was starting at 9pm.  My friend and I got there right on time.  We sat outside so we could enjoy the beautifully crisp evening.  We also thought the band would be performing outside again.  About 30 minutes passed and we could see the guys in the band hanging out, but there didn’t seem to be any sign of movement to the outdoor stage.  In fact, there wasn’t even any equipment set up out there.  i was confused.  By 10:10, we heard music starting up inside the venue.  WTF??  How could they play inside??  This is NOT an inside band.  While I really love The Blackheart AND it’s decor, I would have much preferred to see this band perform outside.  I think that there have been several problems with neighbors complaining about loud music, so they must have brought the band inside because of that.  At first, it was really frustrating because people had already packed inside the room they were playing and my friend and I were way in back.  I couldn’t see shit!  I’m short.  Sue me!  Little by little, as people moved out of the room, we were able to inch up closer to the band.  I have to reiterate that this a band to see LIVE.  Their recorded music does not do their songs justice.  It’s not only about the band, the throbbing drum beats, and the incredible vocal gymnastics of the lead singer, but it’s also very much about the crazy energy that comes from the audience.  They are as much a part of the show as any of the band members.  These are true fans in attendance.  They are dancing and singing along and really just feeling this music.  There was one chick that seemed to be auditioning to be in the band as she harmonized (very loudly, I might add) along with the lead singer.  Yeah, she definitely wanted to be in the band.  I could feel the electric vibe that the band was emitting spread throughout the entire audience.  You can’t help but get caught up in it. I DID!!!  It feels incredible to be at their shows.  That’s why I went back for more last night.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the end of their set because I had to work early the next morning.  I really did enjoy the show.  And I was happy to hear a couple new songs last night.  I’ll never forget the audience participation with the line “The bloodstone is rising inside of me”.  Sorne had the whole audience singing along with him as he directed traffic.  It was magical.
