Last night I went to Nation to see Assemblage 23 play with Haujobb and Hocico. I never really got into the other two bands, so I was really only going for A23; I love them very much. And it was everything I had hoped it would be; he played some new songs but just about as many old favourites; he worked the stage and.. wow. The only drawback was the two asshole gawths who decided to shove their way right in front of me, and by the time I worked up the nerve to shove them it was too late for it to do any good anyway.
Because it was Halloween, there was a costume party. Because this was a goth/industrial show, there was a weird costume party. I myself didn't dress up, but a couple of the people I came with did... Fred dressed as a Catholic Cardinal, tall hat and everything, while Erin dressed as one of the potion bottles from Alice in Wonderland (don't ask me). There were two people there dressed as Domo-Kun!! The costumes were HUGE and ub3r-kyoote. ^_^
Overall, it was a great night. But I think the experience can be summarized by something Fred said during the night: "I spy with my little eye, something that is black...."
