Blackfield @ The Great American Music Hall (3/11/07)

If you've heard of Porcupine Tree, you may be familiar with the band, Blackfield -- an off-shoot of the long-running psychedelic British rock band, Porcupine Tree, featuring vocals by Steve Wilson (of P.T.) and Israeli rocker, Aviv Geffen on guitar and some vocals.

As with most of the shows I see, my expectations were high -- familiar with Blackfield's recent album, I was ready for a solid show and they didn't disappoint!

They kicked off their set with the song "Once" -- check it out while they have it posted on their MySpace page here -- a great tune with some pounding drums that made sure the crowd was awake.

There were a couple of things that blew me away at the show. First of which was how good the bassist was. This guy, Seffy Efrat, was absolutely amazing. I also had to tip my hat to the live sound engineer in charge of the sound to the main floor -- the band sounded tight! Just an extremely full sound -- thumping/driving bass guitar, rich keyboards, a solid drummer and the combination of Steve Wilson's soothing vocals and guitar with Aviv Geffen's solid guitar noodling -- made for a fun show.

Here's a clip from the show below. The video's not great, but like the Army of Anyone clip below, the audio's decent! This is a cover of Alanis Morisette's "Thank You":

Definitely check them out if they come to your town!
