    I watched the live stream some joker put on facebook. The new songs sounded as good or better than I hoped they would live. Was that the impression you guys got being there? Pretty shocked Ed didn't flub SBWM's lyrics

    The venue was super cool.  Ocean right there, with the perfect weather, large moon at night, plenty of room in back.  Couldn't beat that.  Getting out was a pain but would drive in the next time instead of relying on Uber.   We had hotel in W. Long Branch. Didn't think could do a drive home after such a long day. 

    Thought show was great. Pretty much as expected with lots of new stuff and mostly hits but after the last few years pretty much anything they played was going to be cool.  Didn't think DOTC was the best opener for a festival crowd.   Overall the new songs sounded great.  I like 7 O'Clock on the album but wasn't sure how it would play live and came off really well.  Quick Escape I think everyone thought would be really good live and it was great.   Was great getting Present Tense in a festival setting. One of my favs.  Red Mosquito sounded awesome.  Very much under played song.

    I may be the only one but I thought My City of Ruins didn't really work. I know why they did it, and it sounded ok but seemed kind of out of place with the rest of the set list to me. To go from that right into Alive was just a bit off to me.  Maybe should have gone from that into Present Tense or something less anthemic.

    All in all it was great and has me super pumped for a full tour.   Gotta expect Citizen's Bank next summer but have been thinkng that was coming for the last few years.

    I thought the Gigaton songs sounded awesome, and everything had kind of an edge to it - even RITFW which is blatantly overplayed for a cover. Does anyone else think Wishlist is a momentum killer? Too bad Light Years was cut - really looking for that one.

    I agree with all of this. Great show, new songs were great, Red Mosquito is always nice surprise, and I agree on My City of Ruins. I’ve never really been into Eddie solo performances like that. But even for the people that like it, this seemed out of place in a festival setting. Also, in the time it took for Eddie to finish his blathering intro for the backing singers, and then play the song, PJ could’ve played a song people actually want to hear. 

    Way too much blathering on and on by Eddie. I’m conditioned to begrudgingly accept the obligatory climate-change comment and stuff like that. But during that “story” about Bruce Springsteen’s DWI? By time he finished spitting it all out, I thought “That could’ve been Dissident or Last Exit or something.” Minor complaint though. I had a great, great time.

    Never been to the Jersey Shore above like LBI. Very nice setup up there, gotta say I liked it! The beach was nice; surprisingly big waves. Had a blast at the shore house we rented.

    @Johnny Abruzzo - sorry we didn't meet up, man. The whole food scene was a shitshow and ended up fucking up most of the night for us, other than for PJ. Might as well put out a trough like we were pigs. I just picked a line. Luckily it had meat, it was a poutine line. Buddy and me got poutine, while also seeing some woman jump the pizza line next to us. She then got called out for it by another woman. The other woman then got punched square in the face for saying something to the line jump. Wild to watch a little blip in her nose just blow open and the fountains of her nose explode with blood. While we were getting our food my wife didn't want the slop we were eating so she got in the line next to us for crab cake sandwiches. Then when she got to the front to order there there was then another line to get in to wait for your order after paying. By the time my buddy and me sat down to eat my wife didn't show up until we were done and the sun had gone down lol. So then we hung out more at the table, swallowed some crab cake sandwiches, then had to go through the circus of taking a piss (which I'll say the bathroom setup was actually not that bad). Then had to get in line for enough drinks (2 each person) so that we didn't have to come back anytime soon for drinks. By this time I'm getting nervous on time for the show, it's like 8pm-ish.

    All in all, by the time we got in the turnstiles of the festival (545/6ish), got beer, food, piss, got beer again, water took the entire ime. Fucking crazy. It's also about the time I call out the insidiousness of the VIP sections and all that bullshit. Because all it really was was to be purposely planned so that it was the only places you could get food or drinks for a fee beyond the front of the festival. Hey, us humans are just fucking consumers. Gross.

    Beyond that - the fest was a fucking great setup when it comes to location. Our approach of attack to see PJ was to just get on the sand, get over to the fence/walkway closest to the surf, and just keep walking toward the stage until it got just too weirdly crowded. Surprisingly, we were able to get all the way up between the first two PA amp setups on the beach, closer to the 1st one. And we had plenty of room, and a decent view of the stage.

    It's funny watching people discuss in the SHN thread that PJ was in this tour bus going up the beach. It was not Pearl Jam, just some other random dudes from some band I don't know.

    Loved the set for a fest set! Was very happy to see everyone's perplexed reactions looking around because they didn't know the new songs. PJ did not give a fuck, and I was there for it. I was surprised they mixed so much of it in there. DOTC seemed slower live, but was super psyched to hear it and hear it start the show. Quick Escape killed live, very impressed with it.

    Highlight of the night for me was Red Mosquito - I thought it sounded the best of all the songs they played. Clinch's harp playing added to it. Song just sounded right on the edge. Overall, the PA sound was great, too.

    I would've preferred of course some more mix-up in the encore and some deeper cuts, but I knew what we were getting going in. Just overall surprised they played so much from Gigaton and throughout the set.

    Getting out of the venue seemed a little nuts. We just got up on the boardwalk and walked south for like 20 minutes, until calling a Lyft seemed a bit easier.

    So glad to have the PJ itch scratched, it was sorely needed.

    That's such a crazy story about the lady brawl. The food lines I was in weren't so bad. Although those tacos did beat up my insides a little bit. I did arrive a few hours earlier so had more time to wander around and such.

    I ended up in a super-packed area on the beach for the main event. Most people around me seemed to be enjoying everything, even the new stuff, which I LOVED and sounded awesome. Agree on Red Mosquito being a big highlight, especially as it was my first time seeing it (my only non-Gigaton "get" of the night). I would try your "walk closer to the surf" maneuver next time. I spent like 5 minutes trying to find you JP but eventually couldn't move anymore. Maybe next time.

    Yeah seeing rumors but not sure when. I was talking to the girl at Grindcore and they said it's happening they just don't know which day.

    Also there's currently a Philly PPA tow truck towing cars off my block with notices up. But that may have to do with the gigantic fire that happened yesterday.

    Gotcha. Yeah, hearing something about today/this evening but not positive. What burned down? I did not hear about this

    Innnnteresting. That’s cool.

    so shooter I literally drove through the set going to a penn state game, leaving my original place at 2nd and arch. 21 bridges had a ton of scenes filmed right outside my work, sunny had a scene filmed from my front steps (before I lived there but mac’s original house is right across the street) and now this. Not too shabby
