WOW, just CRAZY (the stooges gig)

I got there for the raveonettes, not many people seemed to know them or their music but i thought they were great. Given it was an outdoor show, the acoustics weren't great so the noisy-shoegazey sound was a bit muffled, which probably didn't help the whole "all songs sound the same" tag they've adapted. A few songs i didnt recognize, maybe B-sides or new songs? apparently they already have a new album in the works.

After the raves finished up, the place was packed (I read in the news there was approx 20,000 people). Iggy then took the stage to massive cheers and started with raw power. People went nuts. Parents w/children, senior citizens and many beautiful women left quickly as a 20,000 person mosh pit quickly began....just wild! After the first song, Iggy said "I want everyone on this stage" and ~30 fans went up and danced/rocked around on stage for a song or 2. I think they played all of raw power and all the good stuff from funhouse and the s/t + some of iggy's solo stuff. the biggest highlight (especially as a CiS worshipper) was definitely "i wanna be yr dog", man i was going nuts. For a few minutes there i went to my own world and just went crazy a-la-kim-gordon screaming the lyrics. Mike Watt was on bass for the record.

damn funhouse and s/t with williamson on guitar?

well, pavement were pretty damn good though i could've skipped band of horses (bleh) and i'm not big on broken social scene and their gazillion guest musicians for every other song...didn't see timbre timbre...

inane way of organizing this event i must say... like the idea of going on a ferry to an island but only one ferry every half hour??? not enough food venders and with them being so close together all the food lines merged to one convulated mess, and finally the way to get beer, pure hell, wait in line to pay for tix then wait in another line to get your beer... i remember waiting in line for almost an hour total for stinking drinks and another 20-30 minutes to get some food.

overall i wouldn't do it again, but i'm glad i did.

fuck yeah! That mosh pit was the most packed I've ever been in, I couldn't get closer than 10 feet to the front row. Some pretty good videos up in case you missed it http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Iggy+and+the+stooges+nxne&aq= f

But please don't tell me that I'm the only one here who went to see the free show on June 17, the one with Mudhoney and X? I mean that fucking X, who last played Toronto back in 1990. Not as packed as the Stooges so I got right up front to experience the second greatest American punk rock band. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=X+nxne&aq=f
