Helmet headlined a near sold out Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday night with percussion driven openers Skeleton Key.  Even though Dave Beeman is the only original member left in Helmet, they are still drawing large audiences.  Helmet played a relatively diverse set list (see below), but they would have benefited by playing more off of their earlier and more successful albums like Meantime or Strap it On.

Helmet will be finishing up a hectic east coast tour this month which includes The Metal Suckfest in Gramercy Park next month.
