They're opening for Primus in Williamburg the night before, although it's a double bill so they'll probably play more than the typical 30-40 minute opening slot.

I saw Gogol headline a show in December ... the set was only about an hour long. So if you get stuck with a relatively short set, it really won't be a whole lot off from what you'd see otherwise.

They're a great show, though. Just brief.

After seeing Gogol Bordello open for Rage Against the Machine a month ago, I can't wait to have another chance to see them again. I wish I could go to that show but my friend's birthday is that night.

That's actually my birthday as well, that's why I'm thinking about it even though they're playing Lolla the next week

Monday Night: IRON MAIDEN the greatest heavy metal band in the world at MSG.

I was at both shows in the area. Dream Theater totally kicked ass with their 50 minutes. Iron Maiden was great, although it seems many people complain about the setlist...(not enough as Bruce said, "fossils from 1984.")

I ended up not going to the Maiden show, had to go to my cousin's graduation party instead.

I'll probably be going to that Gogol Bordello show at Williamsburg Waterfront (thanks for the heads-up skeeter) and making a day of it, stopping at L&B Spumoni Gardens on the way there, and the kickass chicken and gyro platter stand at 53rd and 6th on the way back.

How is Williamsburg Waterfront? I've never been there before.

I'd like to know too, since I'll be there in two days for Weezer.

Williamsburg Waterfront is a bit hellish. Its not at as bad as Festival Pier in Philly for a venue, but its a bit of a pain in the ass and security can be dickish.

Ah bummer. What about it is a pain in the ass?

I was there about a week and a half ago. I thought it was OK. Had no problems, really.

I just wished the beer section wasn't roped off. And it would've been cooler if the stage had its back to the Manhattan skyline rather than the stage facing it, meaning the fans' backs are to the skyline.

But those are small complaints.

I read that they changed it to that because of noise complaints. Makes sense, now the noise goes out over the water. Shame, it would make for an amazing view otherwise.

I was going to go to that one, but probably not anymore now that Phoenix announced a show at the Garden in October.

(Green Day and Phoenix are playing at the same time at Lollapalooza and I really want to see both, see.)

My friends voted to miss Dream Theatre so we drank heavily and I missed their set.

I actually appreciated the set-list, BECAUSE they didn't play the hits. It actually introduced me to epic songs that I actually hadn't heard before (Dance of Death, Blood Brothers) and others that I have a new appreciation for (Wrathchild, These Colours don't run, Brave New World). OF course, Wicker Man, Fear of the Dark are classics in themselves, but unknown outside of Maiden fans.

Overall Maiden was great. Bruce just rules. Not sure if you remember this from Monday night:

At PNC Bank Arts Center on Sunday, the fans also booed when he mentioned they were going to play at MSG the next night.

Going to see the Dead Weather at Prospect Park in early August and David Gray/Ray Lamontagne in Jones Beach on August 20th. Way more excited about seeing Jack White in concert though, can't wait for that.

I'm sure no one really cares here, but Lady Gaga at the Garden last Wednesday was absolutely fantastic. That girl has an amazing voice and her sets were out of this world.

Oh and two Wednesdays ago, Andrew took me to see Dave Matthews Band. I may have given up some of my hatred for that guy but they can totally play. Haha. :(

Next show for us is Something Corporate in August and Possibly.... if my connections follow up The Great Allentown Fair for Weezer. Turns out at my new job, I work with Pat Wilson's (the drummer from Weezer) sister in law. I almost peed myself when she told me. :hail:

Went to Warped Tour today. I'm getting too old for that sh!t.

Glad we got there extremely early - last time I went was 06 and we sat in traffic for two hours. This time we were there before the gates opened and hit no traffic at all.

The set times we funky, with the two bands my friend wanted to see the most (Andrew WK and Reel Big Fish) being the first two bands to play on the main stage. It was actually pretty cool that way, Andrew WK was all kinds of fun and we were right up against the barricade. I've never been a fan of the whole pandering Party feel good thing he does, but it IS pretty fun in a live setting.

Spent the rest of the day wandering and checking out the few bands that didn't sound like everyone else (you know, whiny pop punk or screamy semi-hardcore). Found a really good Irish punk band called The Mighty Regis, who were hilarious, did a great Pogues cover, and ended with a wild version of Danny Boy.

Walking by SUM41 looking for my friends, I heard them cover Master of Puppets and Paint it Black. The Metallica cover was actually pretty awesome.

Reel Big Fish were fun as hell, Alkaline Trio was disappointingly kind of boring.

Hot as hell day, and I'm probably burnt to a crisp despite using tons of sunblock all day. Good tune up for Lollapalooza, I had forgotten how brutal those all-day outdoor summer festivals can be when it's hot.
