REVIEW: Anti-Mortem, Worcester, MA

Anti-MortemUpstairs at the Palladium in Worcester MA is one of my favorite places to see shows, period. One of the best parts of seeing shows at this particular venue is the way it’s set up. I’m standing in the middle of the venue, leaning up against the bar directly in front of a small, 3 foot open area of floor. Beyond that, well, beyond that, Oklahoma natives Anti-Mortem are gearing up for tonight’s show. The lights dim as vocalist Larado Romo grabs the mic and says: “Now, normally we’d have the the Oklahoma song playing off of an ipod right now but…we can’t seem to locate it. I’ll sing it for you instead!”
