Punos Posted November 2, 2008 Share Posted November 2, 2008 just got back from Buckethead show @ House of Blues on 42nd street @ NYC. Buckethead was late, showed up without his band. He compensated with some pre-recorded drums and sounds instead of having a real band. He was alone on stage the entire time. He played three songs before his equipment failed. His incompetent roadies tries to fix his shit. They couldn't, so he just stalled for time by dancing and giving out treats for about fifteen minutes. The roadies got his stuff together for a few more minutes...he played another two songs, then his equipment gave out again. Then he just walked off stage. He probably played for a total of 30-45 minutes TOPS. No real "solo", no Big Sur Moon, nothing really new. I've seen Buckethead four times, and this was the worst show I've seen. People were pissed. People were chanting SUCK-IT-HEAD and lingering in case he would return. He didn't. Probably the worst show I ever saw. Really makeshift shit. I brought my girlfriend to the show to show her what a great artist BH really was, but she was disappointed. I was embarrassed for hyping it up for many months, only to have a total letdown.I tried to explain that "his other shows were better than this..." but she would have none of it. We ended up at Havana, a Cuban bar/restaurant and the band there was 10X better than Buckethead. It was a Cuban band with horns, singers, and all kinds of dance moves. We ended up having a great night, but Buckethead really didn't put shit into this performance. I give it a D-. I'm a BH fan, but shit show was absolute shit. I want my money back.
