Re: Are Mastodon good live?
I've seen Mastodon a half a dozen times now and it's definitely been all over the map in terms of quality of performance.
The vocals do tend to get lost in their mix each time I've seen them. The most recent show I attended was in Montreal, QC @ Metropolis. That was hands down the best Mastodon show I've seen to date.
Brann Dailor is awesome every time though. Inspirational even.
Mastodon are probably my favorite band right now.
