If you've ever had the chance to see a Coheed and Cambria show, then you know the chant I'm talking about.
I didn't think I was going to make it, but somehow the stars aligned and I caught the Coheed and Cambria show at Northern Lights last night... wow! They are on a short warm up tour as they get ready to support the release of Year Of The Black Rainbow (officially comes out in a few weeks). Really, looking forward to the release... even more so after hearing a few tracks last night. I thought Claudio's vocals sounded better then ever, Pennie's drumming was amazing, and Travis and Michael were as solid as ever.
Picture this... still in a meeting, in Manhattan at 630pm... all but wrote off being able to catch the show. Ran for the 7:00pm train. Got into Albany at 9:45. Doors opened at the show at 8, but still no text from Jordan that CO&CA went on yet, so I'm beginning to get a glimmer of hope. Drive to the Northern Lights venue. No parking left. Finally find a place way out back... make it inside in time to catch the beginning of the show. I love it when a plan comes together like that!
