    Matt, don't forget the drunk, dickheads that were sitting behind us during the Anathema set.

    I was right next to them, and I was very close to going off on them...except that most likely would have made it even worse.

    Right, but it's blinding and distracting to the performers on the stage. ;)

    People can save seats, plastic bags cannot.

    I have no problem with that.

    I'm talking about the 1st row of seats when you come through the tunnel into the main area. They always have a towel on them yet they remain empty for most of the show.

    Also, all it does it bounce light off of every head between you and the performers.

    You're better off learning how to use your camera phone correctly to deal with low light than to add all of those reflections and piss off the band.

    ^^ This. If your camera can't handle the lighting, then get closer, get a new camera, or don't take photos at all. All flashes do is light up the heads in front of you and annoy the performers.

    Great, as if I wasn't sensitive enough about my bald spot.

    Yup. It's just rude honestly. Also keep in mind, taking photos is a privilege, not a necessity. I take photos and am able to get good shots most of the time without a flash. However, I try not to do too much and enjoy the band believe it or not, so typically I'll do it for a song or two and possibly later in the set if there's a good photo opp. However, at the end of the day, these guys perform for the fans, not for photographers.

    Speaking of flash, special mention goes out to the drunk jerk during the Angra set who kept shining a flashlight toward the band. During most of the set he was holding up a phone, presumably filming the set, but every once in a while he'd grab the mini flashlight that was strapped around his neck and shine it toward the band.

    One more jeer.

    I loved Royal Hunt's performance and they were incredible. That said, considering they brought backup singers last time, I found it odd they had those tracks piped in. It would've been MUCH better had real backups been performing. Does anyone have info on this? Was it simply due to lack of funds?

    I thought it was funny that the guitarist and bass player had microphones in front of them, but they never sang into them.

    Cheers:

    Andy Dowling: Getting to meet him for the first time in 15 years! Hope to see Lord take that stage someday!

    Visa Guy: The shit you went through must have been unbelievable. You're a saint for not going on a killing rampage.

    Falconer: FALCONER! What a killer set, and setlist. I thought I was the only person who thought "Portals of Light" was a classic song, seeing that live was more than I could have hoped for.

    Dragonland: For going on TWICE in two days.

    Jeers:

    The drunk girl who stepped on my foot in heels during Voyager's set: If you're going to get blackout drunk by 6, why bother coming?

    Probably one of my biggest disappointments about their set: the two backup singers (that they brought LAST time) would have really added the finishing touch. Far too classic of an album to be performed with backing tracks. Blah.

    More peanut butter? There are so many places to go with that. LOL. And yes, thank you, HB! That was above and beyond the call of duty at that ungodly hour of the morning! :Spin:
