    My 11th show. Still getting new ones each time. My 9 year old son's first. (Well, technically his second, but he was 8.5 months in utero for the first one.) Eddie said hi to him at the start. "Hey little man!" Then ran to give him a tambourine during YL. The man next to us had a son the same age who also was at his first show and also got a tambourine. I'm crying tears of happiness as I write this. The music tonight, the energy, the love in the room...it was palpable. God I love this fucking band. We also were right in front of the sign language interpreters...how beautiful to see what some of my favorite songs look like! Thank you 10C for the phenomenal seats. Thank you to members of this community I met tonight, and random Jamily members who went an extra mile to make sure my son had a great time. Thank you Eddie, Mike, Matt, Stone, Jeff, and Boom. The love runs two generations deep in this family!

    I know I was signing my ass off, and now am alittle hoarse. The crowd was great and signing pretty loud. Can't wait to relive the night with the bootleg. Got few Lost Dogs. Deep finished off Ten for me too. Wow. Matt's bass drum was fucking kicking. Thought my heart was gonna pound out of my chest.

    Light hearted show in Lex, not on level of the SC shows due to the encores tonight. Brilliant main set though, encores felt a tad vanilla. However, there was a jovial vibe tonight which fit the encores well.

    There were a few too many covers for me personally, but the band seemed to be in happy mood. Definitely my least fav of my four shows this tour (SC shows, and VA), but still pretty darn good! Made a lot of great memories in Kentucky today, all part of the PJ experience.

    All that said, LB opener was cool! Excellent versions of Deep and Education. Satans Bed was mostly solid performance wise I thought, and a big highlight. Honestly, probably the best Just Breathe I've heard too.

    Off to rest, and fight this shitty head cold I've had for 3 days.

    Did anyone notice Ed getting upset about the sound? He came over several times to left of Stone acting quite perturbed!!!
    After just seeing the Columbia show, I must say that the bands energy was so much higher there, but maybe bc he was drinking on a couple bottles of wine! And then he did the whole chugging beer and letting it drool out of his mouth.
    Loved the set list!
    I guess after seeing Hampton...got the shaft on Raleigh...awesome show in Columbia...my expectations were set extremely high!

    He was absolutely pissed about the sound. So much so that he crawled under the stage 3 different times. It never got right to his expectations. But dude was losing it on the sound side of the stage.

    Best sound mix I heard all tour. The room sounded great.
  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 9,620
    This show was incredible! The setlist was really different. Satan's Bed early, Sonic Reducer in the first encore. The crowd was really energetic the whole night. The crowd faltered a little during the Better Man Dont Runaway singalong but Ed is a pro and righted the ship.

    Ed ripped into Trump a few times during Half Full. Was hoping Lukin would be Slow Lukin but cool nonetheless. Nice to see Hide Your Love Away make a return.

    I went to this show by myself but met some cool people in the pit. Incan't rank this show only because PJ is so consistent. This tour is one of the best though. They are playing more of the obscure tunes and it works. Time for sleep..

    My 18th show with about 300 or so bootlegs collected and I will say that the band was great. Eddie was absolutely on fire, maybe an epic night for him! And the crowd was very average to me. And this is my hometown show.

    SATANS BED YOU GUYS CMON
  • BettrMan21BettrMan21 Chattanooga,TnPosts: 178
    Really strong versions of "the hits" Alive, Porch, Even Flow, and especially Black. Satans Bed, Education, Sonic Reducer, and Army Reserve were nice surprises and very tight. Great show overall. Noticed that Sirens is the universal bathroom break; the place damn near emptied during. The aisles were full of people. It's sad. A good song but it never feels natural in a set. Just my opinion. This was my last show of the tour. Greenville and Lexington were great trips. The band has been smoking.

    I found this to be a very energetic, in your face set. The band was on fire from the beginning. I have no other shows from this tour to compare it to, but energy-wise this was the best show I've seen since Columbus 2010.

    Had a feeling they'd play Satan's Bed tonight. 1/2 full and Education were amazing live. I thought it was the best crowd of the tour so far. Great show! The girl next to me wanted RVM. They played it and it was a great rocking version. Happy that she got to see it! We all rocked out! Was definitely a highlight for the people in my section!
