a'tris show @ Knitting Factory

Good show--the band must've been happy that the two preceding bands were either uninteresting or more experimental than its members could handle. Mason's vocals were pretty tight except for a new song that everybody seemed kinda sloppy on, and Dave is a hell of a drummer. They play together well, and the relative puny-ness of the preceding bands really showed up their superior level of musicianship; the only weak spot to my ear and eye are Mason's over-the-top theatrical frontman act--I swear he must choreograph his little microphone dances. Nonetheless, they're a damn good band.
