Pretty awesome they kept to their early stuff aside from the two new songs. I haven't listened to Metallica in years but I would have liked to see that show.

the venue the show was at is run by total assholes. they let about 50 people that had wristbands in a couple of hours before metallica went on and told the rest of us wristbands that when the badge line gets empty we would get in. well it was a huge lie. a couple of songs into the hour and a half long set the badge line was empty and the non fans of metallica, mostly press people, started flowing out of the venue. i waited in line for over 45 minutes into the set with sxsw and stubbs staff telling us they would let us in shortly, they never would though. aftergiving up i went to the front gate to get the word from the sxsw person in charge of allowing entry and my suspicions were confirmed when they said the stubbs didnt want any more wristbands in because they wanted to make certain that if a badge came to the door they wouldnt have to wait at all to get in. to add insult to injury the venue was only arround 3/4 full.

i'm from austin so stubbs, both the venue and restaurant, have lost me as a customer
