I liked Kings of Leon the first time I saw them! I was in the nosebleed section of the arena, but I had an awesome time with my sister. The sound was terrible where we were and we couldn't here a god damned thing, but for some reason it was my most memorable show where I had a seat. We're going again in October and we have floor tickets this time. I think it will be fun.

Oh yeah, that KOL show at Sasquatch was dreadfully boring. It looked like they just woke up about after partying all night, which is quite possible. This has been posted before, but it's been a year or so, and we have some new regulars who will enjoy it.
This performance is much better than they displayed at Sasquatch, but is still pretty bad:

Wolf Parade @ the Starlite Room this year.
The band was good, but the crowd was the worst crowd ever. There were two fights and a whole group of kids trying to mosh. I've been front row for Machine Head and Tool and never experienced the type on-edgeness I got from this fucking crowd. It was horrible. It also had a personal low for me. One of my brother's friends was kicked out for simply trying to hold his ground and keep safe during one of the fights. I was pretty messed up for the show and thought I had zeroed in on the guy who had been fighting and didn't even get kicked out. I was giving that fucker the "evil eye" of a lifetime. He was younger and smaller so I was being as intimidating as I could with my looks, gestures, and posture (so stupid I know). Anyways, it turned out that this poor guy had nothing to do with anything and I had actually frightened his girlfriend to the point where she made them leave the front area. It was my brother who told me as we were leaving that those people weren't part of the melee. I've never been so ashamed in my whole life. It was totally uncharacteristic of me and is the number one wrong I wish to someday make right.
