things i did not get about this show include:

next to no one showing up for the openers, then a bunch of people showing up just in time to stand around and talk loudly during music tapes

People glaring at fans for actually moving around and enjoying the music. Those goofy people jumping around are just showing appreciation and returning all that energy the performers put into what they're doing. Also, it's a rock show. Chill out.

there was SO MUCH talking over song for oceans falling. i truly don't understand why. i could barely hear julian and i was right smack in front of him....please talk somewhere else and be respectful!

Yeah, I was pretty close and didn't really notice much talking at all. When he went into the crowd I thought it was plenty quiet, seemed like everyone who wasn't into had left by them, thankfully. I love when there isn't an asshole there to ruin things, and there didn't seem to be.

i wish more people would feel comfortable dancing about. sure, i look silly when i do it (and people usually assume i'm inebriated when i'm not), but it's fun. besides all that talking, i thought it was a lovely show!

I only move the right half of my body to the music for some reason. I think I'm going to eventually have a stroke and be paralyzed on the left side, and this is foreshadowing that.

Was that you at the front, quixoticgoat? I thought so! I was literally two feet away from you. I should've said hi, but I'm a shy guy, y'know.

I was wearing a blue hoodie.

It was a fantastic fantastic fantastic show, by the way. The whole evening seems like a dream to me now.

Also, some dude tried to sell me drugs at one point. He was SO out of it, and he claimed to be in love with one of the band members. He wanted to turn the concert into a "real rave." I don't think he knew who the music tapes were.

Dude, that guy tried to sell me drugs too! Well actually, he didn't try to sell them to me. At one point, I went to look where the people I'd come with had gone to, and the guy (beanie, mid 30s, jacket around his waist) motioned me over to come sit next to him on the couch. I ask him what he wants and pretends he didn't motion me over, so I was just like whatever and stayed on the couch next to him, watching the music tapes set up.

About 3 times he went to say something, but then clearly changed his mind and didn't speak up. Finally he goes "hey, I know this might sound crazy, but I'm actually here tonight giving away free drugs." It took a lot of effort not to burst out laughing... what the fuck kind of drugs do you have that you can afford to give away?

I was the guy with long blonde hair, giant chops, and a teal circulatory system tshirt, and I definitely saw quixoticgoat, had to have seen more of you.

I definitely saw you. I was standing behind quixoticgoat with my blue e6 shirt and a fedora. I heard some good stories about that drug guy too, haha. If I'm thinking of the right guy, I heard he got 'ejected' from the 40 Watt, haha.
