Nobody knows where I could pick up 4 seats together to tomorrow's LA show for around face value do they?

And then once the crowd gets going its so hard to get even an auto focus camera to focus!

Anyway, tell her 'great pics', Comet and glad you had fun.
You got some great shots too! And thanks I will tell her. Her camera is a Kodak Z1012.

Yeah we had to sneak the camera in too. They frisked me down real good but didn't bother to check my hand that was holding my light jacket over the camera.
Were you in GA? You are braver than I

GA was, um, intense. I started out 2nd row, with my hand on the rail but wound up getting pushed back - I can't fight against crazy ppl who still thing GD is punkrock. So I got pushed back about 10 "rows" but kept next to the catwalk thing sticking out so was still close. Towards the end, I wound up just going about 1/2 way back and relaxing, since the arena is so small.

good luck getting tix for LA - did you try the fan forum?

Wow you ARE a brave soul. No way in a zillion years would I have wanted to be floor at SD. There was moshing going on a lot of the time on one side, so that whole side was just dangerous. I noticed one side was much rowdier than the other. I think my days of doing that are over Devo was bad enough last summer. Big mistake!

Never was able to find tickets for LA tonight so looks like it isn't going to happen. If I lived in LA I'd go to the venue to try but I'm not going to make the drive now without tickets. Oh well. SD was awesome.

new stuff is growing on me. i mean, it's still catchy as fuck. that's all that really matters in a pop song, anyway. "21 guns" isn't as good as far from finished's "twenty one guns", but i quite like it. more than i probably should. hello guilty pleasure song of 2009.

In San Diego the moshing and punk rock behavior started on cue with 2000 Light Years Away and pretty much went on the rest of the show. And the new songs were live.

GUESSS WHAT GUESS WHAT GUESS WHAT??!?!?!?!?!?!??!? I'm going to Berkeley next month to see American Idiot - The Musical!!!! My dad's getting me tickets for me and him today and I bought my plane ticket last night.

And get this! I'm applying for a $500 grant to use what I see there in my classroom (using / adapting pop music to create an original musical). So I might actually get PAID for going!!!

Yeah sorry, I was just commenting on the post above, I know moshing is rock n roll, especially. (Read my post again, I said moshing and punk rock, not that moshing is punk rock) Should have spelled it out more clearly. I just meant that the crowd didn't start moshing until GD went in to their older set, kind of interesting, that's all. Before that they seemed more interested in actually listening to the new songs. etc.

ever hear the avoid one thing song they did with matt skiba from the alkaline trio? yeah. that's what that's from. funny enough, the only time i've ever been in a hot topic was when i couldn't find the re-release of ak3's goddamit. the chick working there tried to sign me up for their mailing list and didn't take too kindly to when i told her no, that's okay, i never plan on setting foot in the store again.
