None Shall Pass

Aesop Rock was at the Orange Peel in downtown Asheville last night to kick off his None Shall Pass Tour. Blockhead and Black Moth Super Rainbow were featured as well.
Blockhead was OK, but Black Moth Super Rainbow was amazing. No guitar; just a couple of keyboard, a stellar female drummer, and a lead bass guitar. Probably better live than on CD.
This was the best concert ever. Aesop Rock shook my hand before the show, and Rob Sonic shook mine three times. Plus in the middle of the show, they announced that Asheville was beautiful, and he came over and said "You! You're beautiful! High five for being so beautiful!" and I got to reach up on stage and give him a high-five. So that ruled really hardcore!
Hooray for Aesop Rock!!!!!
