Just got back from an Offspring concert tonight, good stuff heh. Caught the show with my girlfriend and a friend from work. Got ourselves some floor passes so getting there early enough we made it in just about right in front of the stage.
There were two opening acts Time Again, who's stuff I haven't really heard and ... well they did alright I actually felt kind of bad for the guys, I don't think anyone in the crowd knew who the hell they were nobody was really pumped there was a mild mosh but that was about it. I felt even worse for them when later on in the show when Offspring had taken stage my girlfriend, friend and I were off to the side (more on how we go there later) and the members of Time Again were just standing there like the sad kid who showed up to prom without a date.
The second opening act was Dropkick Murphey's they had an intense set most of which I knew, Flannigan's Ball, Johnny I hardly knew ya, and I'm Shipping up to Boston (many would recognize from the movie The Departed). It was durring this act the crowd started to get riled moshes were a lil more heavy and it was getting a little tougher to keep breathing room for me and my lady.
Wasn't until Offspring hit the stage though that my girlfriend and I knew we had to get out of that crowd. Pushing got a little to much and she could barely stay on her feet I was having trouble as well we moved our way back but ended up in a rather violent mosh. We got a little sepperated and as I fought to get back to her I think I broke some guys ribs... if you are reading this dude... it wasn't me >.>
Ended up helping her into a crowd surf and meeting up with here on the side. The show kicked ass never had more fun getting elbowed in the eye and punched in the face. Offsprings set kicked ass they must have been on stage for about an hour and a half hitting everything from their greatest hits (Come out and play, Pretty Fly For a White Guy, Why Don't You Get a Job , Self Eseteem) and alot from their newest album Rise and Fall Rage and Grace (You're Gonna Go Far Kid, Hammerhead, Alot Like Me, Kristy Are You Doing Ok) The last of which was a very pleasant surprise as it was the first song Erika and I had danced to (I know I'm a sentamentalist and a romantic deal with it >.>).
Afterward we all went down the street to Mickey's Diner and got some much needed food and drink. What a night ^^ now to record and edit more of my next Outside The Otaku video ^^v
