Here is a video from the second time I was lucky enough to see Yob at Off Minor in Dubuque, IA. If you are from the area and weren’t there you suck. I even offered free rides down from Madison and no one took me up on it. If you are one of those people I hope this video makes you feel sick because you weren’t there. Rant over, now on to the show.
Mike Scheidt opened up the night playing some new songs from his upcoming acoustic album. This was the first of two nights that he was going to be playing them on the tour. I enjoyed them, though I really want to hear what they sound like recorded as he mentioned that there is a lot more going on. I was going to take a video, maybe I should have to share, but I kind of felt funny doing so, especially since the songs weren’t released yet.
Off Minor is a great venue for Yob. In fact it is an excellent venue period. I love small intimate shows. Especially ear shattering loud ones. If you watch my videos, there aren’t very many that the microphone can’t handle. This is an exception. The sound is slightly distorted at parts, but I think you will enjoy it anyways.
I had the extreme pleasure of standing almost on the stage as they played. In fact I had to lean backwards to video the drums. An excellent set from YOB with a wide range of material. I was pretty speechless for a day after the show, and that doesn’t happen to me often. I’ve got plenty of opinions to share about music and shows. Anyways, watch the video and catch them on tour if you can. You won’t be sorry.
One more thing, Fucking YOB!
