I had the pleasure of being up front for the duration of the show which was awesome save for the broskis who tried to start a mosh pit and kept screaming at Matt between songs to 'just start the music already'. It takes a lot more than getting pushed around for me to give up my position so I held out and stayed up front.
I was lucky enough to see Dead Confederate last year at the Casbah, so while I thought the show at the Belly Up was great, the effect of the lights wasn't as powerful as it was at the Casbah show, and I couldn't help but get sad that this band will probably not be playing many more small club shows. I know I wasn't the only person loving the performance and eventually the pushing and moshing started, only this time by girls who were completely wasted and yelling inappropriate things at the band. I guess people don't realize if a singer is just a couple feet away, they can actually hear the retarded shit they're yelling at them. That for me was enough to find my friends and watch the show from a different vantage point and honestly, even when I wasn't up front, I was still blown away by the performance.
