Antemasque & Le Butcherettes at Fitzgerald's, 8/4/2014

Antemasque, Le Butcherettes Fitzgerald's August 4th, 2014

It's amazing how quickly things can change for the better. Consider the relationship between Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala. These are two guys who were musically attached at the hip for something like 17 years who suddenly found themselves not even on speaking terms last year.

Yet, here they are a little over a year later with a new band and new songs, looking like they're having the time of their life onstage.

Yes, yes, everyone knows about At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta and all the classic music they've put out, but Monday night wasn't about the past or the future. It was about Antemasque and the present.

The present is pretty freaking rocking.
