10697292_723168117777156_4168158518538488340_o.png

I had an idea recently to expand upon the Ultimate Set List category. I thought that if I were to put together a “dream tour” scenario into the aether, that maybe, just maybe, it might come true. The first one I came up with involves Mastodon, Neurosis and the very awesome, O’Brother. All three of these bands have released fantastic new albums. Mastodon’s Emperor Of Sand is well on it’s way to my album of the year for 2017. O’Brother put out Endless Light, one of the top 5 albums of 2016 and, Neurosis, well they continue to put out quality albums with their newest, 2016’s Fires Within Fires.

With all that in mind, here are the guidelines for this now expanded category.

1: Where would you want to see the show

2: What is the order/set lengths of the bands

3: What line up of the band would it be (If necessary)

thrice-tickets_06-04-16_17_56562cf7102e6.jpg

Ever since Thrice released their new album To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere, I’ve come back around and am really digging on the band again. Perhaps their time away was much needed, as they returned with an album that really shows depth, growth and maturity. Thrice has always been a great live band. Interestingly enough, the only way I have ever been able to enjoy songs from their Alchemy Index albums are on the Live at the House of Blues album. What I have for you today is my Ultimate Set List for Thrice.

Tool_logo_2006.svg.png

Today I thought I’d write about Tool. I’m getting impatient waiting for them to release a new album. I spent some time looking at their set lists that they have been playing and it got me thinking that I should make up my own [said with a ton of echo] “Ultimate Set List.” This feature has become one of my absolute favorites to do and I love seeing what your responses are and set lists you all come up with.
