My metal head buddy wants to drive to see the Cannibal Corpse/Obituary/Cryptopsy/Abysmal Dawn tour. Since Animal Collectives tour lands right next to it, I am going to take advantage. I have to make my friend expand his horizons a little since he is one of the only friends I have that still goes to shows regularly. I am back and forth between Seattle and Portland.
Animal Collective 3/4 Nepchune Cannibal Corpse 3/5 El Corazon
Cannibal Corpse 3/3 Hawthorne Theater Animal Collective 3/5 Roseland Theater
Does anybody want to debate on the quality of the venues to help me decide? I wasn't really impressed with the Roseland last time I went, and have heard the Hawthorne was horrible, but has improved.
Neptune is the only one of those that is a good venue. The others are pretty much equally disappointing.
