My Chemical Romance is the lone standout at the Midland
The Night the Buzz Stole XXmas
December 8, 2010
My Chemical Romance is a band that I absolutely adore. The over-the-top theatricality of the Black Parade took me from a casual admirer to a die-hard fan. However, due to various financial or scheduling issues, I’d never seen the band live until last night. I’d had my doubts as to whether or not My Chemical Romance could actually pull off those riffs and high notes live.
The answer: Holy hell, yes. Like an L.A. glitter-rock band taking over the Sunset Strip, the band owned the Midland.
