I got back from florida around noon, showered, got stuff ready and we drove up around 3:30. ridiculous amount of traffic on the way up, and we got there around 6:30, waiting in line at the coffee bean for the bathroom, got a little bit of food and caffeine in me and got in the queue right next to the buses.
Anyways, so it was a zrazy crowd, the two guys behind us for Harlem were quite pleasant, talking about the fucking 16 year olds who shoved forward. Sorry about that man, we just like being able to see, and the fact that you are taller than us just gave us the awful idea that hey, you could see with us in front of you. The two later went on during the show to move up front and joined in the pushing. Me and my friend found ourselves not having a great view most of the time, but we did manage a few times to see it the stage. I had a pretty good view of dean and alison, which worked for me. Eventually though the nice guy in front of us (seriously, thank you so much, you were very nice) let us go in front of him when a space opened up and kind of helped us when the shoving occurred. we got hit by a few drinks being thrown, and at a few points people slipped in right in front of us and invaded our space but moved. the people around us were cool though.
Anyways, so the show was crazy. Bad sound. Difficult to hear a lot. When Jack was talking about the governor and stuff he said something along the lines of "somebody wants to put motherfucking ronald regan on the motherfucking 50 dollar bill. i bet it was you motherfucking governor." lots of swearing, alison's hair was huge in the beginning and her shirt was ripped up a bit (she had another shirt on top) but the side of her bra was pretty visible. barely had a view of LJ and couldn't really see Jack that well. I had a pretty good view of Dean, but that was mostly spent freaking out like the 16 year old girl I am.
After the show me and my friend freaked out for a bit, and we wanted to stay by the buses, but my dad had to work in the morning and with the drive and stuff we ended up just driving back.
definitely a different show than street scene last year. crazy crowd, lots of swearing, many drunk people (at street scene they cut a line down the middle and separate where you can buy alcohol) pushing, and just the whole performance was different. the sound was actually better at street scene. dean seemed much more confident last night though.
Set list (out of order)
60 ft tall
hang you from the heavens
you just can't win
hustle and cuss
a child of a few hours is burning to death
so far from your weapon
the difference between us
die by the drop
will there be enough water
i cut like a buffalo
blue blood blues
i can't hear you
treat me like your mother
