Destroy This Place Destroyed the Lager House Friday Night!

Friday night we attended the Destroy This Place LP release at the Lager House. For $10 we got in the door and got a copy of their new album, which was freshly pressed to vinyl courtesy of Bellyache Records.

The album contains a download code so you can also get all the files online. I truly think that is the ideal way to put out music these days. CD’s are almost extinct and MP3’s do not offer the sound quality that many of us would like to hear. So this is the perfect way to get your fans the best of both worlds. If you do not listen to albums, I find it is fun to frame ones with interesting covers, and Destroy This Place didn't let us down with the creepy still of the deer man featured on their cover.

This show boasted a killer lineup from the start and not one of the three opening bands disappointed. We enjoyed Braided Veins, Palaces and Touch the Clouds. We were especially happy to finally catch Touch the Clouds after missing them at the Blowout a couple weeks back. Each band was unique and featured a slightly different style from the last.Destroy

When Destroy This Place finally hit the stage around midnight we have to admit that we were kind of exhausted and a little burnt out. But, the energy that they brought to the stage reverberated throughout the room and the crowd came alive and danced and yelled and had a good time with the band. They even played a Hole cover to close the night that had me screaming at the top of my lungs. I was impressed by how precise the band played and loved Ryan’s guitar solos. You could tell that they were as excited to be playing as the fans were to hear it. Overall it was one of the better live sets that I have seen by any band in awhile.

Before they played, we had a chance to sit down with them in the creepy basement of the Lager House and talk about the band and the making of the album. Check that out and make sure to download the new album and give it a listen. I promise that it is worth your time. After all, Lil Bub liked these dudes so why shouldn't you!
