LMAO!!! Thanks for the review.

As for the hippie "hitting you with his hair"... you later said you talked to him after Zero. One of the posts above said a huge mosh pit suddenly formed for Zero, so it sounds like that may have been the crowd at its rowdiest. Either way... if things get crazy in Dallas (I only hope), just be ready for it

the crowd in my neck of the woods was definitely not moshing. the moshing was confined to a small, isolated area not near me.

I don't mind people dancing and having a good time, but these people were going beyond that. trust me, it's saying a lot when i stated that several people i don't know thanked me. everyone near me was mostly head bobbing, putting a random hand in the air ... these hippies were wearing home made tie dyed clothes which REEKED [completely overpowered the smell of lingering pot in the air] and flailing their bodies and waving their arms in the air together. it was distracting and bothering at least 20 people around them and us. i've put up with a lot of annoying people at shows in my 10+ years of concert-going and never said a word to anyone. these two deserved me making my first attempt to get people to calm down.

i forgot to mention that billy actually sang "blah blah blah" in perfect when he forgot lyrics and then he dropped his pick and had to pause to pick it up.

That-a-boy. Billy will soon overcome his hard feelings about your misguided voting in the Zeitgeist elimination challenge.

when billy was screwing around he WAS playing the intro to disarm, playing C9 and Gmaj its just that when jimmy was playing his last solo he was going all crazy and detuned the G string so it was totally off key when he was strumming the two chords, thats why it sounded like ass i was right in front next to him and he def. was playing the intro to disarm.

ya, too me it seemed like the whole crowded erupted into a mosh pit because where i was standing everything around me was totally nuts.

when Billy said the concert was over the first time was when billy and jimmy switched, billy back on guitar and jimmy on bass, they were kinda looking at each other not knowing what to play next and jimmy started this bass line and billy gave him THE DEATH STARE... jimmy had a smirk on his face and kept playing the bass line (i have no idea what it was to) and billy just kept staring him down, kinda in a 'fuck you asshole, but i love you anyway' sort of way.. then billy says 'i don't like that song' and finally starts strumming disarm although his guitar is detuned.

where i was standing i really couldnt hear jeff playing much, i think it was because since i was in the front the side speakers just played past me and i could really only hear stuff from the stage - did anyone else have trouble hearing jeff?

btw ginger does NOT look hot in person, jesus christ... her face is all pock marked and she was wearing horribly heavy makeup to try and cover it up. i mean she was ok, but you could tell she had bad acne scars from when she was younger. now lisa... omg yum...

i thought the bass line was Disarm, that it was the song Billy didn't want to play but Jimmy eventually goaded him into it. i dunno.

no i didn't have trouble hearing jeff but then again i was standing in front of the right speakers, and yeah he was playing the intro to disarm, I said it to my friends, I thought it was pretty obvious maybe that other guy (the one who posted that it wasn't disarm, don't remember who, sorry) just didn't catch it..... oh yeah there was a point at the beginning, I can't remember which song, but billy almost slipped and I swear he was looking right at me when I was laughing at him.... BTW BTL was great

i was right in the center- lined with billys left shoulder.

jeff sounded fantastic.


before one of the acoustic songs (i think 1979?) billy went to say something and kind of coughed as he had a bunch of bugs flying around his face. everyone laughed- when the crowd got quiet i yelled 'welcome to texas' and got a chuckle out of him. he then asked 'is there anything you want to know from me?' everyone yelled again.. when they stopped i asked 'how was your day' he kind of looked at me, shrugged, went to say something but stepped back and started playing.


if only we could have a sbd of this show... i would probably be on it like the austin show (see the spiteface tease)

great show


the 'couldnt stand the weather' tease was awesome. ive seen a lot of bands play it, but nobody comes back in time during the pauses.. SP did it perfectly

You think? I didn't think it was because a guitar tech ran out with an appropriately tuned guitar with only "That sounds like that song Disarm" from Jimmy F to go on. That's why I thought that maybe it was planned.

i thought disarm was planned. i think billy was just going to play it on Jimmy's guitar, but it was so out of tune he needed the other guitar. he tried tuning it a little bit, but it was still way off, so he got his other strat. if you've ever tried tuning something on stage by ear, it's nearly impossible

Yeah, that's what I thought - and you're totally right about tuning on stage, it's impossible

i want to give props to the sound guys. the sound was absolutely pristine. concerts normally turn into a bunch of white noise, but this was incredible.



my ears are still ringing a little bit, however...i forgot my earplugs

aren't there videos of billy from the gish era tuning onstage? and it just seems to take forever?

Probably. It's just really hard to hear the notes perfectly with all the screaming and whatnot. But they have rack tuners and stuff, so it's not impossible. I remember at 5/13/00 James's guitar was out of tune (Mayonaise has a special tuning) and he spent about 5 minutes tuning it onstage!

i remember that. billy told the story about getting hit with the shoe during the tuning malfunction.



rack tuners are the only way to go

ya i thought about that after the concert, kinda a douche thing to do i guess, i was just having so much fun wasn't really thinking about that.

dunno if any of yall heard me, but right when HMM was just starting and the keyboard part just got started the crowd got super super quiet and I yelled out "Billy YOU ARE A HEAVY METAL MACHINE!!!!!"

after the show I realized I was "that guy" that you hate on all the boots, the one that won't shut up and sings along with all the songs and yells shit when it gets quiet haha... I always hated those douche bags on the bootlegs I have, but I guess when you are actually in the moment, you just don't think about those things, especially if you are very excited~!
