    Concert ticket, wrist band, and the front/back of the guitar pick
    I came to the show without much of an expectation after having seen the NIN/JA tour last summer. After driving for over 3 hours with my friend ppk700 and two others, we arrived at the venue just minutes after the doors opened at 6:30pm. The parking wasn't too far of a walk and getting in was quite the breeze. At the entrance, security guys were checking people and asking them to show what was in their pockets. Upon being asked what was in my pockets, I shrugged and was allowed to pass by with my point and shoot camera pocketed. It was sticking out quite a bit out of my pocket, but luckily enough my flannel shirt covered that. After making a trip down to the bathroom, we got up as close as we could, approximately 4 rows of people back from the stage. At 8:00pm, an unexpected (they weren't billed) opening band took the stage and played 6 songs, taking up about 20-25 minutes. …

  • The AiC acoustic show at Antones'

    Sat 29 Sep – Alice in Chains The Acoustic Hour show

    This show rocked. Tiny venue, unusual lineup (a sit-down acoustic affair), and a band that was in the mood to play around - lots of song teases back and forth between Inez and Cantrell.

    Scott Weiland sat in on vocals for a couple of songs (Angry Chair and one that I didn't recognize, it wasn't an Alice in Chains song). Couple of cool covers, The Who's Squeeze Box and Elton John's Curtains (I think that was it). Crowd was very enthusiastic and loud, but the sound was decent nonetheless.

    My only complaint is the same as it was last time I saw them - where's the new material? They've been "back" together for a good amount of time now - let's get something worked up. Would have been nice to hear a song or two off of Jerry's excellent solo albums as well, but I wasn't surprised that they didn't do that.

    William Duvall fits in very well with this band. The first time I saw him was when his band Comes With the Fall

    here's a short summary of the nova*rock festival 06 (http://www.novarock.at) starting with some overall pros/cons:
    + weather (sun, sun, more sun)
    + line up (big thx for Tool)
    + parking site was big enough but far away from the camping area
    - not enough water
    - expensive drinks
    - after the first day the area was more like a waste deposit than a camping area
    - sound: I don't know why it is so hard to get a good sound at a festival...

    my personal highlights:
    day 1:
    - Alter Bridge
    - Alice in Chains: William DuVall (Comes With the Fall) did a great job as their lead singer
    - Queens of the Stone Age: Josh dyed his hair black *shock* - nevertheless it was a great show!

    day 2:
    - Tyler: our local heroes - they started as the first band and got only 30 minutes :-(
    - Lagwagon: nice interaction with the crowd. the Brown Eyed Girl cover version was pretty cool
    - Massive Attack
    - Placebo: the show was like their performance at the Rock am Ring festival

    day 3:
