    Wed 27 Oct – Circa Survive, dredg, Animals as Leaders, Codeseven

    Having missed two previous chances to see Circa Survive, I made it a bit of a personal mission to make sure I would get to see Circa on 27 October. After all, the third time is the charm, right? Anyway, Circa have a great reputation for being a very energetic band that can really get a crowd going, and they most certainly delivered, but before I talk about them, I'd like begin by talking up dredg a bit. Before this show, I had only heard of dredg, but had never really taken the time to listen to their music. I was so impressed by their performance, that I had to hunt down some of their music after the show. It's always nice being pleasantly surprised by an opening act you're unfamiliar with, and though it isn't all that common, I've had a bit of luck in the past with bands such as The 1900's and Noveller. The musicianship was top notch, ranging from some really interesting slide guitar, to a technically complex but fiercely in-your-face rhythm section…
