Opener... dawdling between the opening act and the Pumpkins.. rougly a half hour at most shows I've been to.. then two hours of Pumpkins. My best guess.

Y'all can share my itsy bitsy 1-bedroom apartment by Lake Calhoun and sleep on each other like prisoners at Dachow. That is if the cat allows it. I'll make you waffles or something. Again, if the cat allows it.
are you still making me waffles?

back and forth? meaning you weren't sure if you wanted to go?

osamy
09-28-2007, 11:14 AM
Yeah. I can still make waffles I s'pose. And bacon too. Did you have a ticket, Kerouac, or are you still in need of one? I have one left to pawn off. They were won from the Current, so they SHOULD be floor.

Wasabi's makin' me think we should all get hammered on saki at Ichiban's in Minneapolis before the show.

Course driving would be a bit of a challenge.

Actually.. valid question... Any good record stores in that area? I need to get new copies of SD and PI (again.) Never loan out cd's. Ever. To anyone. No matter how much you trust them. Seriously. Don't do it. You'll be sorry. I'm warning you. I know things like this firsthand. Listen to me. I know what I'm talking about. It's happened before, It'll happen again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Just don't do it. For real.

And.. one more quick question: can you buy merch with your credit card on this tour or not? I need to know cash or plastic.

ciGarski
10-01-2007, 10:47 AM
i heard you could, but im bringing cash anyways.


i've got so much school shit to get out of the way because of this. wednesday is going to hurt too.


although i'd rather have this hanging over my head then last time i saw corgan in 2005. i had been arrested a few days before

There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says, fool me once -- shame on -- shame on you. You fool me, you can't get fooled again.

McGoverns is about two blocks says Nick, the guy I work with. He says it's a cool place.. just like has been said so far in the thread here that we're talking in and stuff.

AndySlash
10-01-2007, 05:23 PM

Not really, no. And not any downtown at all. There's a Cheapo Records off of Snelling Ave south of I-94, but that's a good 5 miles away from the venue.

AndySlash
10-01-2007, 05:25 PM
The only good thing about Bennigans is their 2-for-1 nights.

ciGarski
10-01-2007, 05:28 PM
my concern so far is getting there on time, parking, and finding a place that sells redbull so i can drive 3 and a half hours back home that night.


and coming on 35 northbound i will not have to worry about that bridge correct?

AndySlash
10-01-2007, 05:36 PM
There's plenty of lots in the area. I usually park in the ramp just west of McGoverns. I don't think anything is going on at the X, so it should be pretty free and clear.

And no, because you'll take 35E once you hit the split in Burnsville. 35-W has the collapsed bridge in Minneapolis.

ciGarski
10-01-2007, 06:00 PM
excellent. should i anticipate rush hour traffic? if its anything like chicago this can make or break punctuality.

i appreciate the tips, i don't know anyone else familiar with the area.

AndySlash
10-01-2007, 06:17 PM
Not going into St Paul, no. You should be fine. Just make sure as you're getting into the downtown area you stay on the right so you don't miss the Kellogg exit.

That was my old guitarist. Before I met him.. we both went to the same Godsmack/Staind (yeah, I was desperate for rock) concert in Madison.. and I kept thinking to myself, "how the hell did the puny bald dude get up in the front row?" as I was stuck three or four people from the front.

Turns out he punched some dude in the balls. Or so he said. He was kind of full of shit from time to time.

ciGarski... I'll see you at McGovern's. I'll be wearing a Lou Reed shirt. I'll have matching red eyes by the end of the night.

Long before Linux, in the setlist world (probably starting with Grateful Dead setlists but I'm not certain), it also meant "into" or "segue"

BTW it was a joke since they didn't update the page for a while after Zero

It's just like Billy said at Red Rocks... "I'm a man of few words... [crowd silence]... Ok, my humor obviously doesn't work at high altitude". I think it was before he played 1979, ha

And BTW, I don't know any Linux masters who have seen the SP 8 times this summer. I know some Linux but not a lot. As I postd above, the > comes from my setlist obsession... it's pretty common "punctuation" in setlists

We have NO information about a speech. Please read my last few posts. It was a joke because if you are a loser like me and watching the setlist updates in real time, you would've noticed that they didn't update the page for quite a while after Zero. I joked that BC was giving a long speech before the next song.

Anyway, the crowd is getting beat up right now... Superchrist, Doomsday Clock... is HMM coming?? Wonder how wild the crowd on the floor is

There was a bit of "I Love Rock N Roll" in HMM. I suspect they were playing the main riff in there, too, along with the singing of the line, but I can't be sure because the acoustics in that place blow goats.

Home was the highlight for me. Had no idea it was coming.

As much as I love Glass + the Ghost Children, it killed the crowd at that point. They had just melted faces and cause a mass ruckus down in the front with Tahrentoola and Zero and the crowd wanted more.

Well, if they had to play either Glass or the acoustic 1979 and Perfect next, I would think Glass would give more energy, especially the awesome new ending. But anyway after the acoustic stuff it was balls to the wall rock songs the rest of the set! Superchrist, Doomsday, HMM?? Pretty high energy songs

* Not on setlist


The left the stage front between each of these songs, so they were not all one solid encore, rather three separate ones. Because of the way the stage is in the venue, they pretty much had to go hang out in the back where b0lly's guitars were instead of going to the dressing or staging area as there was about 50 yards between the doors and the stage, and it was all in plain view of the crowd.

However, after HMM and before Cherub Rock, Jeff took off to the doors to presumably go take a piss, because he walked pretty fast. As I said, he could be seen in plain view, so the crowd cheered for him when he came back through the doors.

BTW, I managed to tape the whole show onto a digital recorder. Unfortunately I don't think it probably turned out as well as I'd hoped. There were a lot of people screaming (probably me as well, it was my first pumpkins concert, I was in a psychotic trance).

for some stupid reason the bravery recorded better than the Pumpkins, and I guess I didn't even realize I was taping the bravery, I intend to erase it later.

Anyways I'm sure someone else got some great aud and vid..cGarski was telling me he saw someone taping both of those so hopefully we'll get some good copies circulating. I'll put my audio to waveform and post it up somewhere too, but like I said I'm sure someone else got a better recording. (I was in the pit, lots of pushing and shoving and screaming)

In all honesty though, best concert i've ever been to - hands down. Even kicked AIC's ass WAY out of the ballpark (went to see them last summer for an outdoor festival).

I feel bad for those who couldn't make it.

Info from emptyzero on St. Paul taping results ( http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,78748.300.html ):

"3 open auds from the same stand and 1 video from front row dfc balcony. Gio denied the first stand we tried bringing in saying it was to big but he was more than cool about it. Something along the lines of "if someone trips and breaks your camera you'll be mad at us and if someone trips and breaks their leg they'll be mad at us so see about getting something smaller or holding them." Totally understandable. Very nice guy.

Went back to the car and got a smallerish stand that we all clamped to. We may have been lucky getting that one in but we were way back by the right side of the board where there was very little foot traffic and plenty of blockage. The way to go is probably a DIY stand per manitouman or clamping somewhere in the venue.

Can't speak for the other fellas but I should have my source on TTD tonight (doubtful) or saturday at the latest (I'll also post on the LMA after it's seeded). Taping Murder by Death thursday...

Edit: ~ 2hrs 19mins including encore break, 1 song, small break, 2nd song, small break, 3rd song."

The crowd was very subdued. The show was a rockfest for a good portion of it, but the crowd only got into it during Tonight Tonite, BWBW, Today and Tarantula. Maybe a short portion of Drown. Bring the Light was the highlight for me. It was definitely a surprise that they played Home, but was very welcome. The 1979, Perfect back to back was good, too. Nice to see Jimmy out there with only a tambourine.

Kind of unfortunate the crowd just stood there, but the setlist was great. The acoustics in the venue were terrible. The encore was less exciting than I thought it would be. But what do you expect when no one knows Cherub Rock?

Tomorrow night is going to rock my socks off, as I have 2nd row seats on the left.

I'd say the crowd was pretty good. It wasn't sold out, and like I said, G+tGC and a couple others seemed to derail their momentum at times.

Which actually might have been a good thing. There were several times that we could see the crowd sway pretty heavily in one direction, and then back. There was a lot of pushing and, at one point, a small circle of moshers and slammers opened up. :rolleyes:

But for the most part they had the crowd. The floor was jumping at the right spots, and I do think they fed off of it- I definitely would say the band seemed inspired in their playing.

Billy's line of the night, after asking if were having fun and delivered as only he can, was "When you think of fun, you think of us."



Now, for me, it was great to hear some of these songs live again. Not that I've ever been their biggest fan, but when Drown started it was like this is why I am here. And I can't say Tonight, Tonight is anywhere near my favorite song, but for some reason it resonated with me last night, and I got chills as we were listening.

Corgan was in a fine mood. It's nice to have the Cubs in the playoffs. Great show. Equivalent to a sweet workout if you were up in the front. The overlong "Glass" did get a little ponderous and boring, but I think it was a good way to settle the crowd down (I was a little worn out in trying to keep my balance). The last couple songs...unless they were all just part of that one HMM...fantastic. Sole disappointment had to do with lack of favorite live songs (no Starz, Ava Adore, or Silverfuck), but when the crowd's into it, one has fun nontheless.

i grabbed a setlist and there were a lot of changes. not closing with gossemer was one of them. doomsday wasn't on it either, and some other things.


i entered the "pits" around tarantula and zero.


glass may have appeared to ruin it to you guys but down there it wasn't like there was a big circle pit and everyone froze, its seemed welcome except for the run in i/we had with a drunk guy who totally ruined most of the song. he kept acting like zero was still playing, and was humping the air. it didn't take long for this to become unbearably ubnoxious so cigarski took care of it.

anyway for what i caught i really enjoyed gatgc. home was awesome too.

superchrist, doomsday, HMM were just awesome. heavy heavy heavy

"you thought we weren't comin back, you knew us better than that"

i was amazed to see gossemer written in as the closer, but my girl was totally bummed after with every light because she wanted to hear today, so she got her wish and was just unbelievably excited, so i was feeding off of that. i love seeing newbie pumpkin fans get stoked, especially as first timers.

and at that point our faces were melted and it was just a complete and satifying show. i wouldn't have changed a thing.

So they added Zero, Doomsday, WEL and Today and took out Gossamer. I think I still would like to have Gossamer, but frankly, without Zero right there, I think it'd been a different show. The crowd was alive as hell for that one.

Home was played where it was listed, I think.

Wondering for those that went, we're you skeptical of the pumpkins before seeing them live? Especially considering how many felt about zietgeist?

AndySlash
10-03-2007, 03:13 PM
Very much so. As I said in this thread, I wasn't very excited. But a couple hours before the show the excitement started to creep in, and after the show I can't say I was disappointed. We rated the show a 7 afterward. I was pleasantly surprised. I am now looking forward to seeing them again soon. I need to hear Gossamer, dammit.

yes, i was skeptical. i had lower expectations so i wouldn't be dissapointed. i was suprised. i thought they totally rocked.

I'm curious on how it could be more of 8 or 9.

More favorites on the setlist? Could they do anything in terms of energy/playstyle/etc that could have been better?

AndySlash
10-03-2007, 03:15 PM

The only one I felt was better live was Bring the Light. I already liked United States, and that didn't disappoint either.

MisterSquishyHalo
10-03-2007, 03:17 PM
I guess the reason I ask is, Compared to the 2000 shows, the band had so much more energy and vibe to it. I know many are upset with the lack of darcy/james etc, but I thought the new cats filled in very well.

G+tGC was a crowd killer. I really felt (and saw as I looked down on the crowd) the energy just disappear. Personally *I* enjoyed it, because I like that song, but it definitely negatively impacted the show's energy and flow at that point. The crowd wasn't ready for a break yet.

I know there's a new record and they are promoting it, but I'm pretty sure the crowd would have loved more familiar material. Really, how many there knew Superchrist? How many thought it was just a United States reprise? How many knew Home? How many recognized the radically different G+tGC and HMM? Certainly not the majority.

With Every Light should not be an encore, if played at all. Nobody really seemed to care. If they wanted to go "light" for an encore, play something more familiar to the crowd- 33, Mayonaise (ha)... maybe even Untitled. At least that's on the GH.

And other than Bring the Light and US, to me the Zeitgeist songs weren't much better live than on the record. Hard to be positive about things you don't particularly like if they aren't much different.

So, yeah, a 7.

this is where i totally disagree with andyslash, i was in that crowd and the only thing that killed the crowd was the asshole who was trying to mosh during it. he was so fucked up and was humping the air and started to hump me so i choked slamed him to the ground and told the people around me to get him the fuck out of there. i was suprised this wasn't more visable to the people in the stands. it was a pretty big scene..

at first we were just pushing this guy off of us, then that didn't work and we really had to get physical with him. security either couldn't see it or was going to do nothing about it.

but as a crowd member i totally enjoyed glass

and i enjoyed with every light because i've never seen it live before. and thats (selfishly) what i was looking for in the sets.

How close were you to the stage at that point?

If you were closer than, say, 10 heads back, you just wouldn't have noticed.

It didn't just kill the crowd either, it brought the show momentum to a near halt. Up to that point I thought they'd solidly built the show up, with Tonight bringing it to that next level first, then Zero totally owning the place. I really think if they put Bullet and Hummer there, with Glass following, it would have kind of been a nice ebb and flow. But it just stopped once the trudging beat of Glass started.

I'm sorry, I know there is already a thread for this show but I really need help. I went to the show last night with my girlfriend and by the time we got out of the theater, the tickets had all been taken. It is really important to me to get a ticket. Why did they take it at the beginning? If anyone has an extra one they'd be willing to send me it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot
