Just photos and video this time as I've written about LSF too many times before. Tim Harrington was a bit tamer than usual, though he did break more things this time around. The Detachment Kit was better than I expected (I'm not really a fan of the CD). The band's loud moments were anthemic and raw, but its slower moments were somewhat hit and miss. The live show was defined by the band's guitarist, Charlie Davis, and his boundless energy -- sort of like Kyle Fischer of Rainer Maria but with smaller muscles and less running back to the microphone. Smoke and Smoke were aggressive and agitating and a good listen. The bass tones were otherworldly, and completely made me forget there should have been a guitar on stage. In fact, listening to Smoke and Smoke made me glad godheadsilo broke up. Enjoy the photos.
