lol Nick I think we have the exact same CD shelf.



Well, one of the same shelves. :lol

There are several others in the room as well, including a bigger monster. I've got... too many CDs.

I like how you positioned your Haken albums in the top center of the pic. Very clever!

But also, that kit looks gorgeous.

-Marc.

You know, I wish I was that clever, but it wasn't till after I posted that I went, "oh, that worked out well".

Nick, that's amazing! A real treat for such a long time supporter of the band.

@Shadow: Ooh, Expanse books. I really should read the novels, loved the show.

A treat is an understatement for sure. What's really cool about it is this is legitimately nearly identical to the setup I would get if I was building out a new kit for myself. So it's not just a showpiece or something to adjust to, it's a kit I'll love using.

Great weekend seeing Haken twice.  Both were cool and different experiences.

The NYC show was larger and had a lot more people standing in spots of the floor and also, including myself, a bunch of us standing and headbanging along the side of the floor, out of the way from the people seating.  One guy near me was hang banging so hard, the entire night.  It was actually a lot of fun to have my own space to rock out and just enjoy the show like I may normally.  I literally stood the entire NYC show and had a great view since no heads were in the way. 

The NJ show had a more intimate feeling, everyone sat, for basically the entire show.  There were tables and candle lights on them.  Just a completely different vibe from the night before.  However, I was in the front row and none of that took away from my personal experience, only added to it really. I saw Charlie and Peter before the show out by their tour bus.  Charlie couldn't get into the bus and a couple of us were joking with him about it as another group of people came up and then talked to him until he could finally get in.  Speaking of Charlie, looks like he lost some weight.

One thing they both had in common, a basically perfect performance and great sound in both venues.  The band really sounded top notch and I believe the NJ show was after a long string of consecutive days performing.

The light show was pretty solid, better than a lot of bands IMO. However, it was wayyy better from further away as up close in NJ, I hardly noticed.

This weekend was definitely the best Haken experience for my 9th and 10th time seeing them.  They were just incredible.

@Shadow: Ooh, Expanse books. I really should read the novels, loved the show.

They're definitely worth reading. It's one of the rare cases where I wouldn't immediately jump to 'the book is better,' but they are really good, and are similar enough in broad strokes to the show that I think you'll definitely enjoy them, but also different enough that they're still worth reading if you've seen the show. (Drummer, for instance, only exists in the books to the extent that at one point there is a character named Drummer, but she's clearly the best part of the show)

OH this is a Haken thread. Celestial Elixir.

For the NJ show, I didn't do my typical long form youtube video.  I was in the front row and mostly just soaked it all in.  Didn't bring my camera either.  But I did grab a few clips with my phone to make a youtube short / instagram reel type of video.  https://www.youtube.com/shorts/rQ0tD5wUTcQ

For those curious, Hakenís set tonight on CTTE was all of Fauna, as was to be expected. They said their second show tomorrow will be different, so I assume itíll be most or all of the second set from the tour.

The show tonight was scheduled for 11:30pm, and it ended up starting over an hour late at around 12:45am. So we were finishing up at almost 2.

Second show tonight was awesome.

1. Puzzle Box
2. LotR Fellowship Theme / Titanic (My Heart Will Go On) / Earthrise
3. Cockroach King
4. Crystallized
5. Canary Yellow
6. Drowning in the Flood
7. Visions

Compared to the tour sets, they cut Nil By Mouth, 1985 and The Strain for time, but it was awesome that they pulled in Crystallized since they didnít get to do it as an encore last night.

Has anyone else seen a show from the tour, and can you speak to whether they did the LotR / Titanic intro to Earthrise? It was a full minute or two and it was pretty cool.

They've also been doing the Jurassic Park intro to Island in the Clouds at recent shows, but they hadn't added that in yet (or the new Earthrise intro) at St. Louis or Cincinnati.

They've done it most of the tour.  Some nights it got cut due to time restraints apparently

Yes. He didnít have to play anything, but just sat there in case Ray didnít make it back in time.

Very strange Haken-related dream last night. Just woke up from this like 20 minutes ago

I replaced Charlie in Haken. Me and the rest of the band were about to get on a train, and I left my guitar at the station. I didnít realize that until we got to the destination, which was Tappahannock, VA. The middle of nowhere. Thereís no concert venues anyway, so I donít know where the hell weíd be playing. I get off the train and into a car driven by my buddy Andy, and Rich is in the passenger seat. Rich is maybe 18 years old for some reason and I guess heís also the tour manager? As we drive away I realize I left my guitar behind, and Rich starts cursing me out and he says ďI had to pull some serious strings to get you this gig and now youíre trying to sabotage it.Ē We keep driving to the venue and Iím frantically searching Craigslist on my phone for an 8 string guitar I can buy. Rich says ďforget it. Youíll do the show without the guitar.Ē I told him he seemed so much nicer on DTF but he didnít hear me because he was distracted by the Northern Lights.

Then I woke up, still slightly stressed about the Haken gig I almost had to play with no guitar.

New single 'Mu' released by Hen today. I knew absolutely nothing about this, but I'm digging it a lot. It's got a David Maxim Micic vibe to my ears.

It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."
