small philly show for a good cause.  just a tremendous video


I went on thursday at the Union Transfer which was outstanding. Thought the show started at 7:30 so i got there around 7 and doors weren't even opened yet. So when they did finally open I got rail.  Played for like 2 hours (til about midnight). Funniest was the opener, Tim Heidecker playing a song called "Hot Piss". Didn't know at the time but apparently he's a comedian, actor and musician.

I looked first thing this morning! That show last night would have been something special. Those two songs to close the set! Good grief! I need to hear that Because The Night cover!

I really hope WOD hit the road in 2020, too!

That's great to know.  Thanks.  GO4IT was at one of the shows, and he said they were incredible, with top notch sound at the Met, and they seemed well rested.

New live album, Live Drugs, out Nov. 20. Pretty freaking stoked, the records are fantastic but they are definitely a live band.

Has anyone listened to "Live Drugs" yet? Holy sh*t does it sound good, I've never heard a live album sound as good as this.
Great sound engineering and mastering on this one.

Yea it's pretty amazing.  I think every song on here is the best version of that song I've ever seen or heard.  I'm not a huge vinyl purist or anything, but I can't wait to get this one.

Its so damn great, top to bottom. The closing trio hit me like a truck. Def spending a LOT of time with this one the rest of the year.

This is my number 1 knock against streaming music.. the nerd in me needs to see all the production credits for this album.  Spotify obviously shows you none of that stuff.  It ALWAYS bothers me.

I bought the mp3 download and was disappointed there isn't a digital booklet.  I was curious about this album's particulars, being it's from different shows.

Great album. 12 minute Under the Pressure!  This will be great to listen to often and then they'll hit us with a new album.
