nice! a good friend of mine has seen Maiden a bunch of times and said they are amazing live

I havent seen System yet, looking forward to it (i have tix in 302 thanks to SOAD presale) ive seen The Deftones 3 times, really excellent life

Yea I saw Iron Maiden a few years back when they only played songs from Powerslave and earlier, it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. I saw System of a Down a year or two before that at Ozzfest and it was just alright because they had a shortened set since there were so many bands plus I was exhausted from being out in the sun seeing all the other bands all day long, so this will probably be different.

Is it okay to be jealous of how much weed I smell at the rock right now?!

Saw thrash metal veterans Overkill last night at Best Buy Theater in NYC, and they were awesome. I hadn't seen them live since the late 80s. Lead singer Bobby Blitz Ellsworth is still lean, mean and full of energy. He hasn't lost a step. And the band sounds exactly like they did back then. The best part about the show was when Blitz acknowledged the Rangers big Game 7 win against the Caps, he said he is a Devils fan! I always wished that the Devils would play an Overkill song once in a while during home games. Some of their tunes would fit in perfectly at a hockey game. Plus, the band hails from from New Jersey!

They have been on my mental list of bands to check out for like ten years now. Maybe after reading that story I will finally get to it haha.

Saw After the Burial. Miss May I, and WHITECHAPEL at Freebird Live in Jacksonville Fla last wednesday. Was a pretty awesome show, definitely got punched in the face in the pit and was bleeding all over the place uncontrollably. I was wearing my Defend Jersey shirt so I thought it was appropriate to see it covered in blood.

That is one 90s-heavy concert lineup you've got going there. I, naturally, approve. :clap2:

It's sold out, isn't it? I'd like to go, but I'll have to see how reasonably the secondary market is behaving.

Both days sold out in minutes. They have some reasonable prices online right now. Starting at $60 for thursday and $80 for friday. If you haven't seen them, they are incredible live.

It's going to be a SICK few days at the Rock for me. Game 1 tonight, Radiohead Friday, then Game 2 Saturday.

Literally minutes after I posted about hoping they release more Iron Maiden tickets at the Rock, my friend called me up to say that they did and I'm now going.

Alice Cooper, opening for Iron Maiden at the Rock last night, wore a red Devils jersey with the No. 18 (for his song "Eighteen," no doubt) and "Cooper" written across the back. Very cool!

As soon as I can find a photo, I'll post it.
