This past Friday night (4/29) Mogwai, and Errors played to a sold out crowd at Metro.

Glasgow-based group, Errors kicked the night off with an exciting, bass-rattling set. The crowd really ate up the four-piece band’s unique take on dance music. Calling Mogwai‘s own Rock Action Records home; Errors were the perfect juxtaposing opener.

Mogwai took to the stage at 10:15PM, and began their set with “White Noise”; Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will‘s opening track. The post-rock rooted gentlemen, created what can only be described as a “raw sonic wall of sound” for the audience to digest. Dominic Aitchison‘s ever-present, overdriven bass tone carried the band through their 14 song set.

Errors‘ drummer James Hamilton, appeared in place of usual band member Martin Bulloch for undisclosed reasons. Guitarist, and band leader Stu Braithwaite (sporting an Ol Dirty Bastard t-shirt); cracked a joke at James’ expense to the effect of, “He’s going to end up in the hospital after playing both sets!” Scrolling behind the group were various landscape graphics; including a time-lapse photograph of the ‘HWND,BYW‘ LP cover. Set highlights included the classics; “We’re No Here” and the sixteen minute epic, “Mogwai Fear Satan.”
