9 apr 2011, 09:35The Human Abstract played a short but strong set at the Underground in Mesa, AZ. Their 30-35 minute set featured songs from their new record as well as songs from the past. "Elegiac," "Digital Veil," "Vela, Together We Await the Storm," and "Faust," among others, were played at last night's show. I can surely say that the band sounded in top notch form. Travis Richter, their vocalist, sounded fantastic and was interacting with the crowd throughout their set. At one point, he even tried impersonating his own mother after telling us about how he had talked with his mom. It was pretty funny. All in all, a short, but memorable performance. It was great to see these dudes and they sounded awesome live. I just wish that their set was longer. After the show, I briefly spoke with Travis and got a pic. All in all a good night.

4 dec 2010, 09:50Sat 27 Nov – The Wall Live
I apologize in advance for the shitty grammar. I am not bad with grammar, as I am currently a journalism student. I just wanted to get this done and up as soon as possible as I have been busy and will be for the next week or so. So, with that aside, let's get on with it.
This concert was such an amazing concert. From the special effects to the music, everything was top notch and well done. The Wall is probably my favorite album of all time. And I was very anxious to see it live. The minute we got inside the arena it felt like home. Seeing many Pink Floyd t-shirts walking all around me was a comforting site. My brother and I went up to the merch table and each got a t-shirt while my father waited in the back and took a look at the tour program. 80 bucks later, my brother and I each had a beautiful red “Trust Us” tour t-shirt with the cities on the back and the hammer symbol on the front. Once we got our shirts, we started off to go up to get to our seats. While walking the stairs I smelled weed, and I of course remembered that I was essentially at the closest thing to a Floyd gig these days. While walking to our seats I looked in the little openings that lead to the sections and was in awe when I started seeing large white bricks. I took a closer peek and saw the beginnings of a wall that was to be built. That was “The Wall.” I got very excited. We made our way to our section and got to our seats. I believe I sat in seat 10, row 7, section 211; it was the very back of the arena, but honestly still a perfect seat because I could see the entire stage and the wall perfectly. I even saw the circular screen, and thought to myself, “Wow.” That circular screen was reminiscent of all of the Floyd gigs. Fast forward to when the lights dimmed in the arena. The crowd went wild. And then I saw an older man pushing a shopping cart. I was confused with what was going on, and I saw that he had something in the shopping cart. He then threw the doll of “Pink” on the stage. Soon after some music started playing and I knew that it was getting very close to the intro of In The Flesh? Then all of a sudden I heard the intro of In the Flesh? and tears welled up in my eyes. I was actually tearing up and I was physically shaken hearing the intro to the album; an album that has been a large part of my musical journey as well as a large part of my life. Fireworks went off and it was absolutely amazing. And then at the end, the plane which I had noticed before the start of the show came down and flew into the wall which knocked off some of the bricks and then caused a crash with fire to come out. Of course The Thin Ice came next and that was followed by Another Brick In The Wall (Part 1), both of which were amazing. And let me make this known right now; the entire performance was well done musically. It was essentially flawless, with maybe one or two instances where I thought someone might have messed up. But honestly, it was very rare and the musical performance was absolutely stunning. Everything sounded fantastic. The guitar tones sounded basically just like the album, especially on Run Like Hell and all of the Bricks. The Happiest Days of Our Lives came and went and then Another Brick In The Wall (Pt. 2) came on and was spectacular as always. They even had a group of kids dancing throughout the song. I thought that was really cool. And the teacher puppet was great. After that, Roger spoke to us for a minute or two. After that he got right in to Mother and essentially did a duet with himself playing Mother from the orginal The Wall live shows in 1980 and 1981. I believe the one he did a duet with was from the filmed ones in 1981, but don’t take my word from it. He made a comment about his younger self and everyone laughed. During his performance of Mother they had a large Mother puppet. Very cool. After Mother was Goodbye Blue Sky which was great. And then following that was an elongated version of Empty Spaces with the “fucking flowers.”I believe part of that was The Last Few Bricks, but I might be mistaken. And then a fantastic performance of Young Lust followed with a risqué video accompanying it. I enjoyed that performance a lot. After Young Lust was One of My Turns followed by Don’t Leave Me Now. Now if I haven’t made it clear enough yet, I enjoy every performance of every song of The Wall. So if I haven’t mentioned it and don’t mention it, it doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the performance. I love every song on The Wall and every performace was great. I just don’t want to type more than I have to. So getting back….an elongated version of Another Brick In The Wall (Pt. 3) followed by Goodbye Cruel World ended the first half of the show. We then had a good 20 minute intermission. After waiting in some crazy lines it was time to get back to the show and Hey You started the second half. Great performance. Is There Anybody Out There? got the crowd going a bit and then Rog gave an amazing vocal performance of Nobody Home and Vera Lynn from the famous hotel room. Great job with that by the way as always. Then it was time to Bring the Boys Back Home and they projected some very touching videos of kids seeing what I presume to be their parents coming back from war. It was fantastic. Then a very amazing performance of Comfortably Numb. Amazing enough that the solo actually caused me to tear up. After that was The Show Must Go On. And then came three fantastic tracks. In The Flesh was fantastic, as was Run Like Hell. The Run Like Hell performace sounded especially good to me. And then came Waiting for the Worms. That was a great performace as well. I believe Roger had on some dictator-type attire with the hammers on them throughout those three songs. Followed by the short but great Stop and then the epic The Trial which had what I believe was an original video accompanying it on The Wall. And then The Wall came down to the cheer of thousands of us in the stands. Pink was finally free. And the band members walked on to the stage and Outside the Wall was played. After that, Roger named each person in his band. I thought it was cool that his son Harry Waters as well as Snowy White were in his band. And then Roger thanked the crowd and left the stage. And there ended one of the greatest concerts of my lifetime. The Wall
