Meh. No where *near* Rage Against the Machine in May 2000 or Ani Difranco 6 February 2005 :-(

The seats were *great*; the crowd went wild, at select intervals. When I got there 15 minutes "late" it was already going strong...what band EVER starts on time?! I kept hinking it was a warm-up act as it was nothing but randomly incoherent and disharmonious hard chords for the first hour and a 1/2. While I initially gave it a 2 out of 10, the last thirty minutes really rocked...hard. Since it was my mom's first rock concert, and Nick's dad's first *hard* rock concert, and since they both thoroughly enjoyed themselves, I give it a 5 out of 10.

BTW, I'm probably going to get third row from front Alanis Morissette tickets for late May :-)

O, and I'm *positive* Crefn would have *killed* to see that Ani Difranco concert!! IT WAS SO AWESOME!! I was on the 4th row center, behind these two lesbians who were making out the entire time...apparently a couple on the front row were actually having sex, as Ani interrupted the concert to tell them to get a room :o

I kept sitting there thinking, "Damn!! I should have invited Chandra!" She being a *very* sincerely straight-laced and "pure" Mormon friend who is about to get married any week now. I just felt that she might be able to see that — far from being an "evil" thing — love between two people no matter what their differences / or similiarities / is *always* an incredibly beautiful thing. So, as I sat watching these two make out what was also going through my mind was, "WoW! We've come SUCH A long way since I've been alive!"

Peace out my lovers and haters; as you are the only ones' viewing this site atm :o
Here's a pic of myself, my mom, and my dad right after concert. I'm wearing a "Racoon City Police" shirt; ::ph34r::.
