This past Saturday, The band Hairball invaded the Bismarck event center. I was skeptical. Boy, was I wrong!
In the year that I have been Bismarck, I have never seen the event center rock like it did this past Saturday night. I'm sure it has for country shows but I haven't been to one yet.
I got familiar with the concept of the fact that Hairball covers a wide variety of rock while changing costumes between songs, but seeing how seamlessly they do it in the middle of the show was truly a trip.
It was weird. I thought I was coming to see a band, but what I really was seeing was a celebration of all things metal. They did 2 songs per band covered and changed the set cosmetically while one of the musicians were in a solo. The lead singer also changed costumes pretty quickly.
The place was packed and it was a 3 and a half hour party. So glad I went.
