Opeth in NYC last night

Did anyone else go? Thoughts?

Great show in my opinion, though the sound seemed off at first from my side of the stage (it seemed fine by the end). Both openers were decent, though I almost missed Nachtmystium's set by blinking.

Of course there are songs I would've liked to hear, but there are just too many from their "vast catalog of great songs" (hehe) to please everyone. I also enjoyed Mikael's silly banter in between songs...it's nice to know they don't take themselves too seriously. I wish I'd been able to take some pictures, but it was entirely too squishy in there.
