Since it was my first live show, I wasn't sure what to expect, other than what I have read here. TDS, I totally agree with your assessment of the crowd. The upper tier looked completely bored!
I was impressed that the club was full full full!
I was on the floor for the first half of the show, pretty close up I (I did look for you Rat Bastard!). The sound was not that great. The synth bass was LOUD, and normally that's cool but sometimes it almost drowned out Andrew.
I was also very impressed by the guitar guys (Ben and Chris?). They looked good, they sounded good, and they played with a lot of energy!
After a bit of moshing/pushy/shovey near where I was, I moved upstairs where the air and sound was much better.
I took some piccies but the ones that turned out well look exactly like the others I have seen here. The rest were lost in all the smoke!
I met Quasi Evil and the Mrs., but I couldn't find anyone else due to the large crowd!
Thanx for the nice thought, DrG!
Overall, it was a good performance and I am glad I went!
