That's why you ALWAYS bring a flaming barbed wire 2 x 4 to U2 concerts. No exceptions.

If Interpol had been smoking weed, don't you think that keyboard player would've been in a better mood?

Ha! Yeah, what a sourpuss.

I loved the long shot of Larry during the band introductions, where the crowd kept getting louder, and a smile just finally hinted upon his face. SMILE, GOD DAMN IT!

And then of course, he steps forward at the end of the show to speak two words to us.... and the mic is off.

That may have been the highlight of the show.

Nah. It can only do so much, after all. He was still forced to listen to Interpol.

It was worth seeing Interpol in Mpls. just to be reminded that the lead singer's haircut is a conscious choice and not some band-bus shenanigan.


(rather be bald if that hair was my choice)

He's giving Win from Arcade Fire a run for his money in the Worst Hair in Rock and Roll category.

The first comment I made was "The lead singer got a haircut."

The people behind me laughed, and said they loved that I have seen them so much that I knew that!

I would have rather had that than the yucky cigarette smoke that was in my section.

Not even the chance of a contact high with that.

He was too depressed worrying about his bad teeth. The claw screen really magnifies dental problems.

(I think it was the keyboard player . I just remember one of my first impressions of Interpol was, "wow, those are some unfortunate teeth", along with "SHE CAN'T READ! SHE CAN'T READ!"

Speaking of which, all of these guys doing security were from a local university's football program, and they were working this as some sort of fund-raiser. I know some complaints were made about how they handled things on here (not telling people to slow down in GA, having everyone leave early), but the impression I got was that this was the first show they worked, so that might've been a reason for that.
Hey trevgreg, were you on Edge's side? I saw you in the GA line in your Crazy Tonight shirt, but didn't get a chance to make some inappropriate comment about Adam and that shirt. Yeah, just great, security... biggest band in the biggest concert this stadium has seen and they send in fundraiser-people. More comedy gold from these good old professionals: when the first batch of us entered the pit, one security guard remarked loudly, "WOW I"M SURPRISED TO SEE SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE HERE". And on my way back from the bathroom, an older one exasperatedly said, with a hint of mockery, "outer rail, inner circle..." like we made up some crazy terms. haha. sheesh.

From my spot, all I could see was his little paunch sticking out under the keyboard. Even that wasn't as adorable as Bono's.

Still looking for a setlist of Minny... annotated with Adam's states of undress. The shirtlessness! The shirtlessness!

i really hope a setlist doesn't pop up. i don't want to see anything at the end that wasn't played due to the rain.

So do you want to know the alternative? Because I got a setlist from Dallas: there is nothing after MoS. They didn't plan anything special for us. (but knowing how they've been with the recent shows, they (especially B) are quite spontaneous about adding the last song, if they do)

Moment of sweetness with Mr Schoo: we were all forced to leave the pit via Edge's side, and of course Dalla is there on stage. I give a big wave, thinking he's not even looking at me, but then he waves back!! My friend also waves at him (and I kinda look away and start walking), and suddenly he's taking Edge's setlist and folding it up and tossing it our way. Such a sweet, genuine, friendly guy. I don't know how the setlist stayed so dry (maybe Dallas had to paste Edge a new one after the rain), or why it smelt so good.


nownow, I just wish someone remembered which songs Adam took his shirt off for!
