  • Too bad they didnt do Indifference. And if I recall correctly some of the guys were getting ready for it but called it off last minute and went off

    Ya, Mike was putting on another guitar and was about to walk out and he quickly turned around and passed the guitar back.
    We almost had one more song.
    Great concert though.

    That would have been sweet to hear that tune to close the show.

    I actually thought that was a monster version of Fuckin' Up and a perfect way to end it. I love Indifference, but I'm glad the show ended the way it did.

    Alright, I'm settled back into post PJ life again. It'd be 5 years since last show! Ugh. But Ottawa good for you, I thought the crowd was great and a nice surprise. It was show 19 for me and I kinda settled into a groove to start the show until Corduroy really really kicked ass and went to the next level. They ended the opening set with a great energy. Jeff Killed Jeremy. The band sounded great and EV was fuckin amazing. The new video screens add an excellent element to the experience. Good on ya PJ.

    Love Reign O' me intro from Boom was memorizing and put me into a trance, that song was probably my biggest memory. Betterman was great with lots of crowd volume.

    Amazing show!!! Was standing at the rail on Stone's side and at the end of Porch, Mike came over to our side got down on a lower riser(?) and played the last bit of the song in front of us. I reached out to try to get a high five but he instead pointed his guitar in my direction and I was able to strum the strings before he left.... My new claim to fame!!!

    Played two songs that have been rattling around my head this week (Faithfull and Given to Fly... well they would have played GTF anyway). Finally heard Jeremy live and that's where I blew out my voice. Still on a PJ high and too wired for sleep right now. Will try to get a couple of pics up later.

    Thanks Ten Club for awesome GA tickets!!!

    I think I was right beside you, to your left. That was so awesome, my hand was shaking for awhile after that!

    Yeah that was me... I think we high-fived each other after we both touched Mike's guitar. Still can't believe that it's been over a week since the show. Seems like yesterday.


    Troubled souls unite, we got ourselves tonight,
    I am fuel, you are friends, we got the means to make amends
    I am lost, I'm no guide, but I'm by your side
    I am right by your side.

    I thought it was awful, and he was sitting right next to me, unfortunately. Glad that Eddie stopped talking to him rather quickly. He left so many times during the show that he might as well not have been there at all.

    The dude was in my row too, I was mortified that someone would think it was me. You're right, they were back and forth all night.

    Nevertheless, I sure didn't let that ruin the show for me. I loved every moment of it, and was so happy to be there!! :)

    It was a great show.
    But that idiot sure knew when to be heard taking valuable minutes off the night that the rest of us were there for.
    Stop shouting "I love you Eddie", it truly is pathetic.

    Awesome show, Mike was on fire as usual!

    This!

    Listening to the show now Mike to it to the next level in Ottawa. Saw them in Toronto and Chicago but he was at his best this night I believe. Corduroy lead ins and solos were stellar.
