Mute Math--Quite Possibly The Best Band of All Time

Yeah, I said it. And I mean it. I'm serious when I say that Mute Math is probably my favorite band ever. And I don't say that lightly. I love all kinds of music. But no one, and I mean NO ONE, puts on a better live show than they do. Ren, my sisters, and I, along with a bunch of friends, saw them play at the Tabernacle in Atlanta last Saturday night. I've seen them 3 times now, and this was by far the best show I've seen. They put in 110% into their performances. I honestly don't know how they keep up the touring pace that they do, and put that kind of energy into each one of their shows. While at other concerts they can be seen performing each other's instruments, and doing flips and donkey kicks over keyboards and whatnot, at this particular concert we saw Darren King (the drummer) literally take his floor tom, place it on top of the crowd, and then proceed to stand on it, while drumming on his chest, Bobby McFarrin style. Where on earth have you ever seen such a thing??? It's all par for the course at a Mute Math show. Trust me, you haven't lived until you've seen this band live. They do not disappoint.

wow. i was there. as was most of scarlet|snow.

so my thoughts after leaving....."what on earth could a band possibly do to create a better performance than what i just watched"

minus santa clause and the rockettes, I don't think it's possible.


My face was totally melted off of my skull and left in a bubbling puddle on the floor.

They are one rockin' band! I was stunned by their performance. I fear for their life and limb if they keep up the stunts, but it is a show worth seeing. I liked the new song "Clockwork." I think they may be able to pull off another great albulm if that is a taste of what is to come. It was a whole new experience being next to one of their biggest fans (Tanya).

Ditto what you said, Angie Hipps. Although I am not sure what was more entertaining to watch: Mute Math or Tanya Grisson dancing to Mute Math! :)
