was incredible. I almost got killed during Testify, but it was so worth it

I wasn't at the very front, but I was close-ish at the beginning. I had to hang back a bit and find a spot where I could rock out without getting murdered because I was basically getting squished to death and moshed the fuck around, which I believe is what was happening at the very front. The people on the rail must have been dying. Props to Zach for looking out for everyone.

This one guy on the train said he saw someone up front literally knock this guy over and start beating the shit out of him. As much as I love Rage I could not handle being up in the very front. however the guy behind me for part of the show (I moved around a lot) called me a "concert animal." I consider that quite a distinction at a show where everyone is going insane. Killing in the Name was...

however, for Radiohead yesterday I was four rows back in front of 75,000 people We basically camped out at AT&T stage all day, and during Gogol Bordello (who were awesome) we got pushed even closer to the front. it was great to be up close for Bloc as well. Radiohead was amazing, of course. The National Anthem was fucking SICK. Loved all the stuff from Kid A, and the fact that they played every song from In Rainbows.

so far I have seen:
Holy Fuck
Yeasayer
Gogol Bordello
Bloc Party
Radiohead
Does It Offend You, Yeah?
Foals
Explosions in the Sky
Lupe Fiasco
Rage Against the Machine
When Holy Fuck launched into "Bulls on Parade", Zach let out an "unghh" early on and I started cracking up, thinking of you going berserk somewhere in the crowd. Glad you did not get injured up there.

Like I said before, Morello blew me away. Rage were awesome.

my favourite thing ever was the entire crowd going UNGH during Killing in the Name.

i loved that the crowd was so into it. obviously people don't need to be killing each other but the fist pumping, jumping, screaming along to every word...it's good.

and yea, Morello is amazingggg

Every day is a National listening party for me. They're the best band EVAR.

Too bad A Skin A Night was so disappointing though.

The National were great, for the record.

Great three days for me, heard a lot of excellent music.

Rage, though, sticks in my head the most. They kicked fucking ass and Bulls On Parade is totally stuck in my head.

Just got back from the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal (Osheaga is Iroquois for 'meeting place'). Great two days, although I would have loved to have the lineup that Lollapalooza had.

Anyway, I got to see N*E*R*D, Louis XIV, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, The Black Keys, MGMT, Duffy, The Killers, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Gogol Bordello, and Broken Social Scene.

For the record, NSW, Broken featured Stars' co-lead singer Amy Millan, tonight. And they were absolutely unbelievable. I was blown away.

Yeah, as Impy the diseased freak-swine mentioned, she's been touring with them.

I am glad that you thought they are as good as I thought they were......

Glad you liked them. I love the whole damn BSS/A&C family (bought the "presents..." today).

I just got back from Wilco and they ripped the Lolla crowd.

Probably because everyone was down watching Rage while they were playing.

An acquaintance elsewhere mentioned Lolla and something about a riot there - what's that all about? Is he exaggerating the melee at the Rage show?
