After putting on my fair share of Mastodon shows over the years, it still is completely exciting that I was able to put them on with Brian Posehn at the 40 Watt as the birthday party for Chunklet. A total rush.
I was able to bring Mastodon up by getting the capacity 40 Watt crowd to whisper "Mastodon" as they came on stage. It was really incredible to do that.
Mastodon‘s entire set was old material in an effort to discourage internet leaks. It’s a real pity as their new record is such a masterpiece.
However, they closed with "The Bit" by the Melvins which I’ve linked to from YouTube. Check it out.
