Can't wait till Tuesday! I hope it's a good show. I'll hang around for Fountains of Wayne even though they've been getting fair to mixed reviews. Should be a fun night.

Also, if you're coming into town for the show need some last-minute travel advice, feel free to ask me.

See y'all there...whoever y'all may be. :P

Good show. Pretty good set list. Heard Keep it Up for the first time. Can't Even Tell is officially my favorite live song. So glad they're doing that one. I like Stand Up and Be Strong as an opener.

I'm wondering what dumbass concert promoter thought putting FoW second was a good idea. They got really boring really fast, and about half the crowd left after Soul Asylum. (Seriously, I'm not exaggerating).

I wanted to talk to Dave afterwards, but my mom was pretty much running for the door about halfway through FoW, so she made us leave. Gotta love going to shows with your parents.

Oh, yeah, and I guess Evan Dando was pretty good too.

I think your chances of meeting Dave are better after SA's set than after the show. I don't think opening bands hang around backstage after they're done, at least not established types of bands. After Port Chester they were out by the bus just a few songs into FoW's set.

Yeah, I thought about that, but at this venue you're only allowed to go outside if you're going into the smoking area. Other than that it's no re-entry and I really wanted to hear Stacy's Mom. :P

Oh my god Jim, I am going to freaking kill you. I just spent an hour typing a huge long post but this stupid forum logged me out while I was typing and I lost it. I thought you fixed that shit.

Normally I copy my post to the clipboard before I hit submit but THE ONE TIME I FORGET it does this. :x

Aw. :( My first two SA shows I went to with my mom. Both were outdoor shows so she just sat in the back in her lawn chair after we agreed on a post-show meeting place.

Regarding performance order, with respect to Band Energy Level it would have made more sense to go Evan-->FOW-->SA based on the show I attended. I'm not sure which band has the bigger name draw at this point.

Such a great show - love the energy and how much fun everyone seems to be having. Setlist was awesome too!

A video of Whatcha Need...in which I nearly get taken out by Dave's guitar ;)
