VNV Nation @ Ram's head Live 3/12/2012

Went to see VNV Nation on 3/12/2012  at Ram's Head Live with John and Kate. I was not sure about going to this show as Iced Earth is/was the next day... but I did end up rolling up.  We got there about 7:45 and thought we were missing part of Straftanz, but they went on at 8PM instead of the advertized 7:30PM. Good! So we had a couple happy hours.

Straftanz was, like last time, energetic and enjoyable. They had a unicorn toy that I do not recall them having last time that they displayed prominently during one song. I think they had the same setlist

VNV Nation was similar to their last show- very positive and surprisingly high energy for a fat man. It was loud, but not so loud that I needed earplugs. They played a slightly different setlist than in December, so that was fun. It seemed maybe extended, but maybe the 'extended live set' that was purported didn't seem that extended. Oh well.

There was a smallish crowd (no balconies opened, but the floor was decently filled- if everyone was there you could fit everyone on the main floor and still have decent 'personal space'). Some cute girls, some not, some glowsticks, a lot of people wearing black (duh). Was a good concert overall.
