08.24.00 Los Angeles, CA Greek Theatre Finding Me All Of You You're A God Grey Sky Morning Shackled Send It Up Everything You Want We Are -> Spirit of the Radio tease Ok, a few comments. I must say that All of You makes a nice addition to the magnificent seven/usual suspects. I was glad to hear them play it, but surprised to see that Keith played electric. We Are was great tonight. I like the intro, first off. Second, Matt switched guitars twice during the song, once because he broke a string. Ed kept the beat, while Matt changed guitars right before the bridge ("I get up sometimes..."), and as Ed was keeping the beat, Matt said, "you can't f**king play with a broken string in the coolest part of the song." And, they just went back into it. Busting in to the Rush cover was a great way to end the show (no words, just a quick tease with Matt doing some cool guitar work and Ed drumming like crazy). The crowd sucked tonight. We were pretty much the only ones who stood in the first 20 rows throughout the first 5 songs. But, the band seemed really energetic (*much* more so than I expected) and there was some good interaction between them...A great time, even though I was not expecting too much. Talked with Keith afterwards...such a cool guy :-) Not impressed with Nine Days. As far as 3eb goes, whatever. I was really impressed with their drummer, especially on "wounded." And last, some famous faces in the crowd tonight...I saw Tiffany Amber Thiessen smoking outside before I entered. Also, as we left, I saw the quarterback from The Waterboy (he's also one of the gay lawyers in Big Daddy). Anyway, a cool night, even though VH only played for about 40 minutes or so. Thanks for listening, Ryan A.
