so finally, i post.
tuesday was great. the unknown opening acts for the show were replaced by the moldy peaches, so i was a happy girl. i managed to worm myself to the front, near the stage. some girl next to me brought her mother (why, i don't know). her face when i was singing along to "who's got the crack?": priceless.
tenacious d came on stage, and the usual crowd of drunken frat boys pushed their way to the front. they managed to start a frenzy in the crowd, pushing, shoving, and such. another person next to me threw herself at the bars and screamed at k.g., saying that she wanted to fuck him. she screamed for about 30 minutes, until he finally threw her a guitar pick. that got her to quiet down. jack black got angry and stormed off stage because everyone was saying that they only wanted to see k.g. served him right.
then the strokes came on, creating more pushing and shoving within the crowd. me, being vertically challenged, had some trouble seeing the stage. i was smushed between the aforementioned frat boys who proceeded to pass a cigarette around, belch, and giggle. the band was surprisingly good live, considering what i'd heard about them. i managed, standing on my tip-toes, to get a good view of julian, albert, and nick. nikolai and fab were a little hard to see. i danced around and sang along, attempting to have fun despite the fact that it was difficult to breathe. people fainted around me, and many had to be pulled out of the crowd by the security guards. fab jumped into the crowd twice, and crowd surfed over me. it was interesting to see what he looked like up close, since i wasn't able to see him onstage.
after the show, we sat in the parking lot for a few hours while jenny's mom tried to find her way to the campus. a car pulled up. it happens that the people inside were security guards, who offered us backstage passes. jenny and dionna seemed eager to get them, but i was suspicious about a "catch". we said no, and they drove off.
we finally got home at about 1:30. jenny's parents were pissed.
