It had been a while since I last visited a concert, but after De Staat was recommended to me by a friend, I was really curious how they would deliver live.
So last friday we drove a little over 100 km to see these guys live, and I didn't regret going. The evening started off nicely with Sir Yes Sir, which was a nice lead in, although not something I'll be listening a lot at home or in my car.
When De Staat came on I was blown away, man did they deliver. The energy these guys give off while performing is absolutely amazing. I really love their new album, I_Con, so I was happy to hear all my favorites from that release.
Also songs like Sweatshop, Wait for Evolution and others from their first two albums Wait for Evolution and Machinery passed by during this awesome performance. It's impossible not to start dancing (or at least pretending you can dance) while they are on the stage!
The only negative thing I can come up with is that time flew…
