Soundgarden rocked Wellington's town hall of 3000 to it's core last night. It was the first SG concert I've ever seen and I was mightily impressed as were the other fans. Half the floor was moshing and going nuts, especially in Ty Cobb. They played for close to 2 hours, playing Spoonman,Searching with My Good Eye Closed,Let Me Drown,Burden in my Hand,Bootcamp,Black Hole Sun,Fell on Black Days, Blow Up The Outside World,Pretty Noose, My Wave,Helter Skelter,Hands All Over,Outshined,Slaves and Bulldozers,Rusty Cage,Ty Cobb and encored with Head Down and Jesus Christ Pose with a special feedback show from Kim. The only downside was the absence of anything from Ultramega OK, Incessant Mace is an awesome song. Kim was all smiles, Chris rocked, Ben was Ben and Matt bashed his drums like a maniac. Soundgarden are well worth seeing again. I give it 10/10.

I'm disapointed that so far only I have submitted a review of SG's concert. Am I the only Wellingtonian who knows about this sight? Peace, the Overfloater.

Soundgarden rocked. It was one kick ass concert. They played a good spread of songs from the last three albums. Also Kim got into some mind blowing sonic stuff at the end. Was well worth the temp hearing loss.
