Ok.. finally getting around to writing about my second trip up to Summerfest.
Really wasn't anyone I wanted to see on Sunday... the lineup was pretty lame compared to some other days. Lots of country acts for some reason. Came to the realization that pretty much ALL types of music is represented well at Summerfest... except for Rap... and Metal... wtf!?
Anyway... we parked, and made our way in... grabbed a few drinks, and made our way toward the stage. Now, this is when I noticed that they were frisking people on the way in, and had a guy on a bullhorn announcing that no cameras were allowed (among other things). So... I ducked into the bathroom and strategically hid my camera, and successfully smuggled it in. Really don't know why they care so much... And it isn't like every cell phone isn't a camera now anyway (a crappy camera.. but still a camera). Anyway, I never use the flash at a show.. so I almost never have any chance of getting caught with mine. But I just couldn't pass this one up...
Some people should really honestly look at themselves in the mirror before they leave the house.... and before they start drinking (whatever is sooner, assuming that they get dressed before they start drinking). I simply had to risk using the flash on this one, and it simply had to be recorded and posted on here. So, my apologies for putting your heinous image on the web.. whoever happened to have a ticket for section 2, row FF, seat 36 (i think). Wow.. that's heinous. Right after the flash went off... I became aware of 2 security people standing right behind me... I quickly turned the camera off... threw it into a pocket... and enjoyed the show.. they left a few minutes later, thankfully. I'm not sure what would have been worse... seeing this behemoth from behind... or from the front... I think behind is a lot safer.. and less nightmare inducing. My personal BBW collection is growing! haha
Anyway... it wasn't long before Trent took the stage, and it was the usual NIN show... brutal and intense... with only a few brief interludes that offered a little relaxation before being plunged back into sensory overload.
My only real complaint is the lack of a projection portion of the show... was really looking forward to seeing the video that gets played along with "Right Where It Belongs"... by far, one of the most powerful songs I've heard in a while... especially with the video that goes along with it in concert. I simply must find someone who has a good bootleg of it.
The life and times of an atypical average guy.
