The showroom was moderately full (or very full for a Sunday night) and I liked the new songs. I'm not sure if I like Battery as well as their first album, but I'll listen to it more tomorrow for further evaluation. The band was typically energetic and talented, and their set lasted about an hour. They're always fun to watch, just because William Wilson can seems to have trouble keeping his feet on the ground, and Jeff MacIssac's drumming is so theatrically good.
At this point, I think I would've been disappointed without the traditional "interesting" William Wilson first song hat and random front row drunken interpretive dancer (I kind of hate myself for being annoyed by these people). Both criteria were satisfied, and another crazy girl climbed up onstage to take the setlist and drumsticks, which was kind of weird. All in all, it was a good impulse decision, though it required me to miss the thrilling conclusion of The practice.
