I've been to quite a few shows this year, and I have to say that this past weekend was the most ass-kicking weekend of concerts to date. Friday night Val and I went to see Tool, whom I've never seen before. It was better than I had expected. It was little more than listening to the CDs on the ultimate sound system, but that's a good thing. Great performances and high energy.
Saturday, Val, her son Stephen, and I took a trip to Philly to visit her daughter Megan at Drexel U. After dinner with Megan's boyfriend, the 4 of us went to see Porcupine Tree at the Keswick Theatre. It was probably the best PT show I've seen (this being either my 3rd or 4th time seeing them). They played about an hour of brand new material, which was pretty good, but unfortunately it was at the expense of their older material (Buying New Soul being the oldest tune they played). Most of the second set was pulled from their latest albums, In Absentia and Deadwing.

Another good thing was that the kids seemed to enjoy it...especially Megan.
All in all it was a great weekend of concerts...one that will likely not be topped for a while.
