I know Trusted is an unpopular song overall

whoa whoa whoa - apologies for the slight de-railing, but people hate on trusted? freaking love that song.

sadly, no. i go to Iowa State, so for 60% of the year i'm out here in the middle of nowhere. the Minnesota show happened to work out quite nicely but there's no way i can make those Chicago shows happen, especially on Sunday nights like that. it kills me, because there are so many shows i've missed out on over the years. oh well.

btw vosnos, i got your email, i'll be able to give you a proper reply after class tonight!

really great show. the guys really got into it after the first third of the set - the crowd was very odd at this show, sitting and standing depending on the song. i think it really threw the band off a bit, until we finally got everyone standing for the rest of the show.

recording turned out great - it'll be up tonight (what a tease!) once i get a chance to finish tagging and uploading.

i'm still waiting on my pledgemusic vinyl, but i ordered a copy for my girlfriend from amazon and she got it today. i'm on the top row, 20th from the left!

also, the vinyl has lyrics on the record sheets. as well as the pledgers' names pull-out, obviously. whoop!

they recorded a song in japanese - my guess is that is thank you for breaking my heart. the fact that all 3 of the bonus tracks are listed only as ben has to be an error, because i doubt he also did solo versions of those reunion songs as well. so it looks like there's only one proper bonus track so far on anything.

It was okay. They only played for about an hour and ten minutes, which in my mind is a HUGE ripoff, seeing that I paid $70 for tickets.

Was this a festival?  I hope they add another hour worth of material.. Seeing as Kansas City is in a couple weeks and was $150 for some tickets.  I'd be severely disappointed if there's only an hour and ten minutes.

best I can tell it wasn't a festival. and i agree- that's pretty freaking lame for tickets costing $60+. unless there was some sort of noise curfew at that show last night, i would not be surprised if we are to expect this for the rest of the tour. that's a real disappointment.

EDIT: looks like judging by the website that they do a weekly thursday night show with 2 bands- one at 7 and one at 10. so maybe this is a bit of a different circumstance? still doesn't excuse the price...

Apparently pledgers get the album tomorrow.  Yay!  Hopefully they send out the link nice and early so I can download it before work.
