I did not pay anything extra.  What is the fast lane?  I have been to a few shows at the Fillmore, and have not had any issues getting in the venue in a timely fashion.

They're spectacular live. The 930 show in... 2003?... with stellastarr* opening is a top 10 all-timer for me.

I have a feeling this will be up there for me as well.  The set lists as of late have been excellent.  They do a great job curating content from the last few albums, along with some older tunes.  I was supposed to see them in 2009, but part of their tour was cancelled.  I do not plan on waiting another five years...

I easily could be wrong but I want to say that Placebo show was with Idlewild. I'm trying really hard to remember who was the other band for that Stellastarr show. My first thought was Grandaddy.

They (Placebo) came in summer 03 with Ambulance Ltd, and again in December with stellastarr*. I know the December show was 2 bands only, I'd wager a significant amount of money on that. I have never seen Idlewild but would've loved to so I'm certain that was a different tour.

I know Stellastarr* headed out spring 04 with Ambulance Ltd and Killers. I'm pissed if I missed an Idlewild/Stellastarr* tour at some point.

I saw that Stellastarr/Ambulance/Killers show at the Black Cat. It was incredible, I couldn't believe how good Stellastarr was.

And it appears you are correct:

Placebo 12.12.03   9:30 Club, Washington DC   USA   w/ Stellastarr

Now I wish I could remember what show it was where Idlewild opened at the club. I remember getting there halfway through their set and being so bummed that I'd missed it.

I saw it in RVA. Maybe 20 people in attendance. Killers sounded awful, the other two bands were spot on.

I was actually pretty impressed with the Killers, though I was inclined to like them because I was a huge NME fanboy and had a feeling they would be good. But regardless of my mental hype, I thought they were very polished and "fully formed" in that the songs were catchy, they sounded great, and they looked good up there. I never really listened to them apart from when their songs came on the radio, and I can still hum some of the tunes they played that night.

it was possibly venue specific but you couldn't make out a word they sang all night. Echoy mess.

Maryland Death Fest 2015. So far I only picked up Soundstage Saturday tickets. I also plan on going to the main stage Sunday to see Neurosis and Goatsnake amongst others. I don't think the main stage areas sell out really so dunno if I will get advance tix on that one.
