Super pumped for Kendrick.

Macklemore performance was wonderful. Was a little disappointed with Joey BadA$$ on Fallon, though.

i can't even bother to try to find a single complaint. easily the most intense show i've seen. hell of a setlist too. hate to plug ya, but if you wanna read about the show....

bannon is a weird ass dude. for an entire hour before converge's set, he just sat there at the merch booth by himself staring into space. then he hit the stage and was a maniac.

"The sauna-like conditions of Fitzgerald’s left everyone in a cloud of their own body odor and sweat, but no one seemed to mind." haha always a good indicator of how fun a show is (i saw tssf and didnt even realize my entire shirt and pants were drenched).

Did you talk to him? He seems like a really down to earth guy.

yeah, just a bit after the show. he asked why i was writing in my cell phone so much, and i had to tell him "i'm the asshole who is reviewing this show" and he was like "can't wait to google it!" definitely a cool dude.
