So, today was one of the incredibly-hard-to-get-tickets-for concerts put on by our radio station - the KROQ Weenie Roast (an annual event). This is the first year we've been able to snag tickets and oh, holy HELL was it WORTH IT.

For a mere $45 per ticket, the two of us saw these scheduled bands: Face to Face, A Day To Remember, Cage the Elephant, Bad Religion, The Strokes, Rise Against, and Linkin Park.

That alone was *insanely* worth the cost. Duh. (The last five are among my all-time favorite bands). There were several smaller bands playing on a secondary stage earlier in the day but we didn't go see them.

So, you'd think that those bands would be enough? Apparently not. Because Rise Against ended at 9 and Linkin Park wasn't scheduled until 9:30. So, we're thinking, a little intermission? We turn to head to a different section (we were on the lawn seating, no assigned seats). Then we hear this very familiar thumping coming from the dark stage. I looked at Anndie and said, "That's not Linkin Park." We both squinted and screamed something obscene.


Yeah. So, Foo Fighters were a surprise guest and played for over an hour. It was beyond amazing. Because seriously? FOO FIGHTERS.

The Mumford & Sons concert last night was absolutely AMAZING. I adore that band to an obscene degree, even more so now having seen them live.

We went to the Railroad Revival Tour stop in San Pedro - literally, there are three bands (M&S, plus Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crowe Medicine Show) traveling the country on a train. At various places along the train tracks, they stop and have a concert. The one we went to was in Ports o' Call (Long Beach shipping ports) and the stage was set up in a parking lot. It was a huge mass of humanity and beer and pot smoke - but despite that, it was incredible. The music from all the groups was fantastic and Mumford was just ~glorious~.

I cannot WAIT to get my new computer and vidding program and go NUTs with their songs and Tin Man. I've already go the two previously mentioned ones planned, and now Anndie wants me to do "Home" by Edward Sharpe et al. as a Tin Man vid, too.

We are pleased. ~*~squee~*~. Can't wait to see them again! *keeps an eye on concert calendars*
So, this is currently my newest favorite song (and favorite band):

(And yes, naturally my brain is all aflutter with Tin Man vidding ideas - especially for their song "Little Lion Man," which just screams Raw/Glitch.)
