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.

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.)

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.")



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:

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:
