people were lined up at noon for yesterday's show
People are nuts.  That show was FAR from sold out, and no one thought it would be.  I was in row "four" and I showed up at 8:50.

There are two lines and everyone is confused down here because of those placeholder red tickets. Conflicting info from door staff.

Anyone from IMP who can explain who should be standing where? For real?

I don't want to get screwed standing in the wrong line.

Seth doesnít see why you need to know which line to be in.

 I just wanted to comment that I had a fantastic time at the show last night
sound was awesome, band was on point and the best venue in dc

I am so happy for the random acts of kindness from FWB!

Glad Dave and co did a full two hour set last night, kinda thought we'd only get 45 mins of songs and some interviews
pleasantly surprised

also...I am happier going last night as it was about 3/4 full
tonight will be butts to nuts packed
also it was Free...not $100, so that made it that much sweeter

in the future, I'm definitely ride-sharing
took like 30 minutes to get out of the garage and cost $20

nice poster

butts to nuts packed
this is my new fav expression.  although "nuts to butts" makes more sense to me, logically; but doesn't roll off the tongue quite as easily.  dammit.

Great Foos show.
Packed Ns to Bs for sure.

Folks got a little unhappy over by stage left when one dude decided to mosh/slam aggressively at the start of "monkeyranch."  Marine looking patron took moshguy down very quickly, and handed bewildered moshguy over the staph.

Fuck AT&T. No signal at all. folks with T-Mobile were streaming the Nats game with perfect clarity and I cannot even text to get in communication with friends at the show.

Three more notes:

I am old and tired.
Boilen and Bagley are doppelgangers.

Cell service was also terrible for me with Verizon. Walked out of the venue only to discover several messages from The Director that were too late. :(

Couldn't connect to the wifi either, probably overloaded.  They ditched the "name must match ticket" policy at some point, probably took too long with the mass of people.  I wonder which side of the venue was quicker to enter.  Facing the front, I was to the right.  I would guess that the other side was probably quicker, I didn't know that was an option.

Got a Poster. The regular posters were a series of 300.  There were also "foil variants" in a set of 100. I got there too late for the foil variant; and that's fine.
