This was the best concert I have ever seen in my life- well worth the permanent hearing damage I’ve suffered (hey, you only live once, right?). Even the opening bands rocked, well above par judging by my limited experience. I got to hang out and watch the concert from the second floor and avoid the crowd a bit (yeah, I know- that’s the best part, right? Well, it was hot down there :) and I had a perfect view of everything that was going on. It was trés cool :)
I highly recommend that everyone see Flogging Molly live should they ever get the chance- this band is incredibly talented. It’s amazing how they can drink Guiness and Whiskey onstage for 2.5 hours in the heat and still manage to play an average of two instruments each without missing a beat.
I got back from the concert a few hours ago, and have been working ever since. I should probably go to sleep about now, as everyone else has already done so long ago. Tomorrow I hope to see the Ithaca sites with Peter (yes, again- hey, it’s his first time!)
