RCMH
« on: March 06, 2010, 08:26:47 PM »
I am listening to SDOIT off Score right now, and I am  :biggrin: because
1.  I was there as they played this song
2.  Because I remember that monumental moment during this song when the curtains rose and there beheld an orchestra

Combine this with the thought of seeing them at MSG in a few months, makes me want to join hands with those of you who were also there and just simply appreciate that magical night of pure musical euphoria

Really wish I could have been there. I'm pretty sure I had no idea who DT was at the time though.

I think I was playing LOTR Risk ( :metal) with a few friends at the time, and I was sitting at my computer, constantly hitting refresh, getting the set list for the evening.  Very cool.

This is the best possible way to spend the night other than actually being there.

Score was cool, but I'd have much rather been at the Roseland Ballroom gig.  Better setlist and the orchestra didn't really do a whole lot for me.  Certainly glad I went, but it wasn't the be all end all for me.

Very fond memories of that whole week - flying out to the east coast and catching a bunch of shows out there, finishing it off with a gig at the RCMH. An amazing gig and an amazing time, meeting up with fellow DT fans I've known for years. And getting to go to the aftershow was a great experience too.  :biggrin:
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Hearing The Root Of All Evil on Score really solidified it for me as one of the best songs on Octavarium.

I mean, how can you not go nuts to that riff and song live? Damn...

I kinda feel the same. One of the things that stood out for me for RCMH was that the sound was incredible. Every single part of the performance was so clear I couldn't believe that it was happening in a live setting.

Because it wasn't very loud.  I suppose it's a good trade off.  I certainly appreciated the clarity, but I remember thinking I would have liked it to be louder.

Nah, the live version of the song is pretty good IMO.

Even watching the DVD there were just so many awesome moments that I wished I had a friend who cared about DT to tell them to. The gong at the end of SDOiT was great.  :lol

Believe it or not, most people at RCMH knew nothing about the hat.

Yes, it was an incredible show for me as well.

Just remembering that event and how much it was used as an inside joke on DT.net and DTF.com.

RCMH was easily the best concert I have ever attended. The only thing that bummed me out was that the curtain got stuck after the first set, leaving part of the stage still exposed. I was in the seventh row and was able to see the Orchestra gearing up on stage. Either way though, it was still epic.
