David didn't break any strings.
Johnny graciously allowed Sarah to play some of the solo on "Don't Fuck Me Up With Peace and Love". She acquitted herself very nicely.
Moshing was minimal, but there was lot's of pogoing.
For much of the evening, the odor of burning rope wafted through the crowd.
Brandy's got a great voice, and she really came through well on the PA. They should let her take lead on a tune or two. She vacillated between being extremely laid back and rocking out hard. I could not detect a pattern.
Johnny really worked the crowd, to the extent of being visibly winded after several numbers. My wife thought he must have been really hot in his striped flannel PJ's with T shirt underneath.
After about 8 numbers, David started asking for requests, but everyone yelled at once and it got a little testy. I just wished that when he first said it I'd have said "Yeah, I've got a request, GET A HAIRCUT!", because you see, David appeared to have recently gotten a rather close hair cut, and there we were in the freak capital of the U.S. and nearly every dude in the crowd had longer hair than him. Irony is the glue that something something....
I would have liked to have heard some songs that weren't played, like "Satisfy You", or "River Euphrates", so I was a little disappointed. My wife says I'm being too picky, and she rated it one of the best shows she's seen, and she's been to at least 20. Then again, I shot a 76 playing golf today and still wasn't happy, so consider the source....
My wife and I didn't chat up the folder folks in attendance, in retrospect we should have at least said hi to Sarah. You might say we have a little bit of a chaperone complex. We can see you kids are having a good time, so we just hang back. Being older than some of your parents is a little disconcerting sometimes, but's it's all good in cracker soul.
