Helmet came onto my radar via the song “Unsung” from the album Meantime. Me and my friends loved Helmet from that point on and picked up copies of both Betty and Aftertaste the day they came out. Needless to say this was a very exciting show for me. My first time seeing Helmet and my first time at the Casbah. It is a quintessential small rock palace that I would estimate holds about 200 people tops. I think it was me, Marvin and Dee. I cannot remember exactly what Helmet played but they had just released the album Size Matters about a month and a half before this show. I want to say they divided up the setlist pretty evenly amongst the 5 albums out up to this point but I was drinking and smoking and I am pretty far removed from this day at the time of this entry so who knows. I do know they rocked.
