    I saw them about 2 years ago, in March 2003. I thought they were great.

    I saw them not long ago. I had never heard of them when I saw them open for A Perfect Circle. I was quite impressed and I keep meaning to pick up an album or two.

    I just borrowed "Francis the Mute" from my brother.
    It's a fantastic album!
    Been listening to it for days.

    Im seeing them in may in NYC. THe tickets sold out an hour after they released them to the public, good thing i got mine before that.
  7. I hope i can see them someday...great band ! The Mars Volta is defnitely not a typical rock band. They often improvise which is quite rare in rock. Have fun :)

    Hmmmm...me neither. Cool do though. I had one of those in high school.

    Juan Alderez, their bassist is AMAZING. If you see them live, make sure you check out how awesome he is. I think he uses vintage Fender Precision basses exclusively. He's a complete badass.
