Videos: Soundgarden @ Ottawa Bluesfest (07. 05. 2011)

Posted on July 6, 2011 |

I finally got to cross out the band on top of my “bands I need to see before
I kick it”

To be honest, I never thought last night would happen. What luck that I got to
be around and witnessed most probably the awesomest rock n’ roll night of my life.

You would think after 15 years of waiting, I was bound to be letdown but that was not the case at all.

Chris Cornell was in fine form. Kim Thayil, still one of the best axeman around.
Matt Cameron may just be a drumming cyborg and Ben Shepherd is the most badass bass player ever. That guy means it.

I mean shit, look at this setlist:

Black Rain
Searching With My Good Eye Closed
Let Me Drown
Jesus Christ Pose
My Wave
The Day I Tried To Live
Blow Up The Outside World
Hunted Down
Ugly Truth
Fell On Black Days
Burden In My Hand
Black Hole Sun
Rusty Cage
Beyond The Wheel


Loud Love
Slaves And Bulldozers

I couldn’t have asked for better. Well maybe adding “4th Of July” in there but really
I was quite satisfied.

Still being this tight after such a long hiatus just speaks volumes to the true greatness of these rock n’ roll giants.

I cannot wait for this new album and hopefully a tour in the new year.

I managed to capture 7 songs.

Going in, I wanted to enjoy the show fully without having me to keep my camera rolling but I couldn’t help myself.

You will hear me sing (badly) on some of these and for that I truly apologize.

I was in the moment and could not resist.

Searching With My Good Eye Closed

Jesus Christ Pose

Fell On Black Days

Burden In My Hand

Rusty Cage

Loud Love
