Show Review: Clutch 5/12/17 Louisville Palace
Clutch came through on Mother’s Day weekend and showed Louisville who’s their daddy. Neil Fallon and company played to a near sold out crowd at The Louisville Palace. The beauty of the venue was not lost on Fallon as he made multiple comments about the room and how he needed to stay focused on the rock. The venue, the band and the fans melded into one religious experience.
The set was a journey through their 25 plus year career. Opening with “Gravel Road”, a few songs later “A Quick Death in Texas” and they even played a new one for the first time called “2 Fives“.
Clutch has never been one for stage theatrics. They get everything across with just the guitars of Tim Sult, the bass of Dan Maines, the drums of J.P. Gaster and the monster vocals of Fallon. Clutch delivers on a level that most bands can only dream. No latops, no fire, no nonsense, just pure rock fury.
This tour with Lucero and The Sword runs through May 20th. Clutch will then team up with Primus from July 17th through August 18th.
