Knotfest Day 2

Posted in Concerts, Uncategorized with tags , on October 27, 2014 by Sara Hammerzmith

My friends! This morning I went up at 4:30 to catch SlipKnot’s second livestream from Knotfest in California. First of all, I apparently went up an hour too soon. With my calculations, it was supposed to being at 5am, and even the official page had written so. But when checking the timezone site, it was indeed at 6am it should begin. Damn it. I could have used that extra hour of sleep!

But no worries – I took the oppurtuniy to move around everything in my room, switching my computerchair for my more comfortable sparebed so I could at least have a cozy place to sit at while watching the stream.

Eventually, it began AND THANK GOD – THEY OPENED WITH “XIX“! My only complaint from last night was the fact that they didn’t open with “XIX”. I loved the song on the album, and as I said to my friend – it’s the ultimate song of doom, basically, and would cut it perfectly as an entrance song. Gladly, they finally did it.

Over all, I’m pleased. I’m a lot more pleased with the setlist for this night than the previous, and I noticed Corey didn’t have to adjust his mask as often as he did yesterday, which is good. On the other hand, his voice seemed a bit sore. I guess it happens. And while I loved the selections of songs, the energy seemed a bit missing. I wonder why.

Regardless – I’m glad I went up to see the stream, and I’ll spend a few days being bitter over not being there in person.

Here’s the full show, for all of you who didn’t get to see it this morning:
