just saw this
Strung Out - Twisted in a Suburban Wasteland Tour 2012
Sep 29 - House of Blues Sunset
Oct 5 - House of Blues Anaheim
They're going to be playing Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues and Twisted by Design in full. I will be doing my best to make this (provide the wife doesn't go into labor 4 weeks early - one last hurrah?)

strung out is an enigma. Those two albums pretty much typify the fat wreck meets a tinge of hardcore/metal solos, but more on the "epi-fat" side. Twisted By Design was a "holy crap, this is a fat wreck chord band who can really play and wants to rock the **** out" type album. Too Close to See is such a good album (and show) opener.

how was mxpx

holy **** slayer was ****IN BAD \m/
slipknot was awesome as usual, but felt a little empty with 2 members missing. jim root had his appendix burst and paul grey's replacement was probably playing backstage or something. their setlist was probably the best i've seen in the 4 times i've seen them. my 2 favorite slipknot songs are pulse of the maggots and heretic anthem, they played those back to back and i nearly lost my ****. i also caught a stick from chris fehn at the end of the show. freakin sweet.

haha, ya, the friend i went to see mxpx with was telling me that twisted and suburban are the only 2 strung out albums worth listening to. he sounded stoked about the tour when i mentioned it though.

oh and they showed a mini movie on a big projector screen before their set that was of them reflecting upon the past 20 years and that was pretty nice.
there was a guy who probably only looked about 5 yrs older than me with his two kids there. one of them was a 13-15 yr old girl and a 10-12 yr old boy. that was awesome! and the dad was singing along to all the mxpx songs. haha. i wanna be that parent...
set your goals was surprisingly good live. i went in with low expectations. they do have a weird stage presence though because one of the vocalists is big and pudgy and the other is really tiny and scrawny, haha. neither of them play an instrument so there's all these people on stage, too. i liked them though.
i can't remember much more, the only thing i had for dinner was beer and whiskey...
thankfully, we managed to miss mest and rufio. it was totally funny, some guy near us asked if mest had already played and we were all like "ya... i think mxpx is next BUT we just got here like a half hour ago so..." he looked so bummed, HAHA. then when mxpx was asking the crowd to give it up for mest and everyone in my group was like "blegh!", the guy near us looked so disappointed, he had to leave our presence, HAHAHAHA. who knew there were big time mest fans out there? lulz.
lastly, big time concert no no = wearing a concert tee of the band you are currently seeing. i saw too many people acting like n00bs at this show, ha.
