The set was pretty good... the crowd was absolutely pathetic though, even
when 3eb came out. I was there for VH to be honest, but I was one of few.
I was thrilled to hear personal favorites like shackled and wash away; both
were well done considering the timeframe of being an opener. The intro to
shackled, by the way, was done by matt, and was quick. He plucked the top
string on the guitar, the most bass string (whichever note that is), and
then smacked the back of the body, up above the strings, above where you
strum it. Hopefully that makes sense--I'm not a guitarist so I don't know
all the lingo :) It had sort of a percussive effect, was repeated for like
30 seconds, and then Keith came in with the usual opening riff and lyrics.
At the end of the 3eb show Matt (and Splender's lead singer) came out to do
a song with them... "Should I Stay or Should I Go". It sounded familiar,
even though I'm not a 3eb fan, and one of my friends (who is a 3eb fan) told
me it's a cover. It was the first song in 3eb's four song encore.
