Neurosis play three sold-out shows in the City by the Bay as they exalt their 30th anniversary as a band.
With a setlist that covered their entire existence, Bay Area natives, Neurosis, played songs they haven’t played live in years, and may never play live again. Highlights included “Pain of Mind,” “To What End?,” “Takeahnase,” and “Day of the Lords.”
It didn’t feel like they were saying goodbye to these songs, but rather a nod to the incredibly diverse body of work they have created over the span of three decades.
The band has been in the studio working on a new record with Steve Albini (whose band, Shellac, were on the bill for night two at the Regency). If these shows were any indication, Neurosis still have plenty of fuel left for the fire.
Neurosis hand picked all the bands to support them during their three-day run, and night three saw both Converge and Hardcore icons, Negative Approach, on the bill.
National Rock Review photographer Raymond Ahner was in the photo pit to capture the event.
