best concert of the year, so far...

we were SO right about the rain making last thursday's concert even more fun! even under the pavillion, we were soaked! but everyone was, and no one cared! (i saw one girl who was covered in mud from the top of her head down to her bare feet--and she was definitely still smiling...) now i love me some rob zombie--i listen to him almost every day. and man, his music is great for dancing around the house! but live, he was even better! i wish i could go see him agian RIGHT NOW in a small venue somewhere where the loudness and the madness would be even more impactful. i loved everything about watching his crazy ass on stage!!! loved the strippers and the energy and the cool stage set--the video was awesome, too! i was sad only that a couple of my favorite songs were missing from the set, but i am still reeling from live dragula and living dead girl! (both songs can be heard on the rob zombie myspace page if you want to check them out.) and then godsmack?! they were just awesome, too. i wasn't as familiar with them as with zombie, but man, i have definitely been enjoying them ever since. their stage show was amazing, and their drummer is AWESOME! and then the lead singer and the drummer did a set with dual drum kits that was one of the coolest things i have ever seen in a concert. it reminded me of long, long ago when i saw jane's addiction when they were just getting started, and they did this thing on stage with bongos and a strobe light that sounded and looked fabulous--i have never forgotten it. anyway--suffice it to say--that concert was worth every cent and the nearly 3-hour drive through the rain and the late night and how freakin' tired i was on friday! the hippie loved it, too--i think he was pretty happy with this part of his birthday present. i wish we could go do it all again! our next concert's got a long way to go to live up to this one!

I am SO old.

I have no idea who these performers are.

Sounds like fun though.
Glad you enjoyed yerselves.

I can say I have been to more than a few love-ins in my day, been duly covered in mud and had a blast.

Good grief.
I am stardust.
I am golden.
I am ancient.
