Full Show Friday: Mastodon 8/15/01 CBGB's, NYC

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Mastodon!

 We have a special theme this month as we focus on full live shows from the historic NYC shithole CBGB's

We saw many a filthy show there, and while the bathroom was the worst in history, the sound was absolutely fantastic. Our only regret is that we never had a chance to play it. This month we focus on some of the great bands who did, tackling one show from each decade the venue was in operation. 

Well we skipped over some better quality shows to get to Mastodon from their early days because we wanted to reach each decade that CBGB's was open, so we got the 70's 80's 90's and 00's represented now this month and it is fun to see a young and lot less hairy Mastodon do their screeching metal from back in 01. We didn't like their recent album so much, in retrospect that star rating was too high, but this is a good show if the lyrics are almost inaudible. Hope you enjoyed this series, we have and we also found a bunch more shows that will pop up on future Fridays from the LES dive bar so fear not if we missed your favorite.
