Went to see Akercocke last night in a tiny venue and my left ear is still ringing. This is the fourth extreme metal concert I've been to but don't remember the ringing lasting this long. It's been over 24hrs. It's not as bad as it was after the show but it's still there. Everything sounded muffled this afternoon but everything is fine now except for the constant high frequency ringing. It was a great show. Only about 40 people showed up and I was right against the stage. Got to shake the band members hands after the show and the bassist gave me his set list. Very cool. Neck is still hurting from head banging and my right knee is still bruised because the pit was right behind me. I'm bringing ear plugs next time and will only take them off during my favorite songs.
