Lamb of God at Atlantic City House of Blues

Friday Lamb of God played the House of Blues in Atlantic City. For a while I kept telling my friends we should make a trip out there. I used to go all the time but haven’t in a while. So when I saw the concert listed, I immediately bought tickets. I decided we had time to iron out all the rest of the details later. And as I planned it did. Me and my friend saved up cash, booked a cheap hotel room and headed out there on greyhound.

I didn’t expect House of Blues to the most metalhead friendly venue, especially when I found out this was one of the dates that Gwar was not playing with Lamb of God, but I think their security was a little overboard. We had to walk back to our room because they wouldn’t let anybody in with spikes or even a studded belt on. Thankfully, we were very early and the hotel room wasn’t too far. Otherwise our option was to throw them out.

We finally make into the show and Hatebreed is on, yet they were missing Jamey Jamsta. I’m not sure what happened but not being a fan of Hatebreed I really didn’t care.

I’ve seen Lamb of God twice before, and I think this was my favorite. As always their energy was amazing. In fact, Randy ran around the stage so much I could barely get a good picture of him-I did finally though.And as annoying as security was the House of Blues had a great sound, and I like that it’s a little bit smaller venue than some others I’ve seen them in.

Of course I ended the night with wandering around casinos, and grabbing some drinks randomly while passing through or stopping at bars. One of the best nights I’ve had in a long time. The last bonus was shopping the next day at the outlets before hopping on the bus back to the city.

I have a ton of other pictures but they really need to be edited. Hopefully in time I will be able to get them up. (note: more pictures available at http://www.facebook.com/album)
