Coheed and Cambria, Between the Buried and Me, Russian Circles
Showbox SoDo was filled with eager fans of all ages to see Prog Rock sensation Coheed and Cambria with support from Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles.
Russian Circles opened the sold out show with an eerie, yet very passionate and moving set. The band is completely instrumental,but while watching them you would quickly forget they are missing a vocalist. The band played songs spanning their discography and never spoke a single word the entire set, leaving fans curious and wanting more.
Between the Buried and Me are no strangers to Seattle and their fans were there in full to support the band. Vocalist Tommy Giles displayed his incredible vocals throughout their set, switching from angry and angsty un-cleans to soothing and completely relaxing cleans. If their stage presence wasn’t enough for you, their light show would change your mind.
If you’ve ever had the chance to see Coheed and Cambria live, you will know from prior experience they tend to give you a show you paid for with an enormous set list. This time was no different from the rest, playing songs from their new double albums (The Afterman: Ascension/Descension) but also digging up some old fan favorites. You could tell the crowd loved the new songs, but the second “A Favor House Atlantic” started, the crowd erupted and the entire floor was moving while fans howled the words back to the band. New music was great to hear and classic stuff was the clear favorite of the night, but you really can’t go wrong with the band no matter what year the tunes are from.
