      yea The Palladium has been cracking down on filming for the past year and a half. has nothing to do with this particular show. if they see you holding up your phone for more than 5 seconds they’ll say something to you. they suck, security cracking down on drinking in the parking lots now too. sound guy is horrible. this place went to shit.

        I’ve been hearing this from a lot of people. It’s a shame too. It’s a great venue. I grew up going to shows there. ‘Back To School Jam’, ‘Skate Fest’, Of coure ‘New England Metal & Hardcore Fest’ and tons of others.

        They used to be like that at the Fillmore Detroit but really gave-up on it in the past year considering everybody has phones capable of recording good quality video.

          yea it used to never be an issue, and when all the other venues in the MA/RI area seemed to not give a shit anymore this place decided to be a bunch of hardos.

        I hate all the fucking cameras at shows these days. I can understand for monumental show like the first KSE show with Jesse back… but EVERY show you go to there are 5 asshats in front of you with a camera up the whole fucking time. If your gonna have your arms up the whole show, there better be some middle fingers and horns being made! No one wants to see your shitty quality video with shitty quality sound of a band that has toured for 2 years straight and played basically the same set at every show.(obviously i dont meant you specifically Narco… just THOSE people)

          hah i know what you mean, i “film” a lot but i’m tall and usually stay in the back near the bar so my camera is never in the way, however for the tiny camera that it is, it has pretty killer sound quality.

          You will get much better sound in the back then up front. Wish those dumb nut sniffers with cameras up front would figure that out!

      • so true, fuck the palladium now. Used to love tailgating, up on the higher level of parking lot. Now you can even choose where u park and they have cops there consistently. between old lupos, the living room, jarrods, axis & Avalon, and palladium; truly an end of an era. As far as small intimate, chill, and comfortable venues to see a show

      this is a very exciting time for killswitch fans. Jesse seems to be back with a vengeance, and he’s really proving his muster by successfully making those howard songs his own. Like Farts said, cant wait for some new heavy from these guys.

      So why have they always shied away from In The Unblind? I was hoping that Jesse returning would get them to play it. That song is the best, play it dammit!!!
