Soundgarden at The Wiltern

I saw Soundgarden perform at The Wiltern on the 16th. The performance was excellent, the mixing could have been better (the bass drowned out the leads), and the crowd was mature (someone even brought a young child). Overall it was a great experience. I never thought this would happen.

The Wiltern, named after its position on the corner of Wilshire and Western, was a very nice setting. Entering the lobby was like entering a movie theater in the 50’s. The walls and ceiling had lots of fancy carving and molding to admire while waiting for the show.

Here is the set list. It was a good mix of songs spanning their entire career. Matt Cameron’s son played guitar on Eyelid’s Mouth.

  • Nothing to Say
  • Flower
  • Outshined
  • Gun
  • Jesus Christ Pose
  • By Crooked Steps
  • Room a Thousand Years Wide
  • Attrition
  • The Day I Tried to Live
  • Been Away Too Long
  • Worse Dreams
  • Get on the Snake
  • Ugly Truth
  • Non-State Actor
  • Ty Cobb
  • Drawing Flies
  • Blow Up the Outside World
  • Fell on Black Days
  • Eyelid’s Mouth
  • Loud Love
  • Rowing


  • Searching with My Good Eye Closed
  • Rusty Cage
  • Beyond the Wheel

Here is a video I found from that night. I was right behind the person recording the video, so this was pretty much my view.
