The Dresden Dolls at Toad’s Place

On February 3rd, Jenn and I went to New Haven, CT, to catch The Dresden Dolls at Toad’s Place.

It had been a while since I’d last seen The Dresden Dolls, as I didn’t make it to any of their Halloween shows during the fall, so I was really looking forward to this one. In the end though….well, the song selection was good, but Brian (the drummer) was getting a cold, the sound at Toad’s sucked (as always), and the whole affair seemed to be more low energy than I’d expected. Of course, the last show of theirs I’d seen had been the kick-ass show at The Paradise last summer, so that probably had me setting my expectations a little too high. The show in New Haven was good, and probably better than many bands manage to pull off on their best nights, but it wasn’t up to level of that last one.

Oh, and I could have done without the snow on the way home.
