    I’m hoping to get to the fall shows, although I’m nearly certain that radiation therapy will prevent me from being at Wrigley at the very least. At least I’ll have Ohana to look forward to.
    radiation therapy? I’ve been to shows with chemo coursing through my body, so you can do it!
    I appreciate the encouragement 😄 But if my daily sessions aren’t done by August 28/29 I think it will be tough to take a trip to Chicago from the West Coast. I am hoping to make Philly and Boston happen though (I’m very good at napping, lol).
    All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it.

    Great show and setlist! Half of the time I was just standing there in awe since it was my very first pj concert. Felt a bit sad since I wanted to jump around in the pit, but the people around me were kinda standoffish.. and I’m super shy and didn’t want to get any more looks.. tried to speak to some but they just curtly responded and turned back around. Also - all the tall guys were in the front, probably first 10 rows of mostly tall people, so the stage wasn’t too visible. Regardless of that, still was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, purely based on music and how humble and salt of the earth this band is. Being in my early 20s, it was surreal as my first concert ever - long live PJ!
    Congrats! Looks like a great show!!! I felt very late to the "going to PJ" game but I'm getting some decent numbers now.

    Where I was in the Vegas Pit is was very friendly. Sorry your experience wasn't as good. :(
    Awe thank you! Yea I’m trying not to dwell on it, concert still was life changing. Not sure if I’ll be in the pit again, but if I do hopefully I meet some of yall! 10c people are the nicest! 
    I've got floor seats for the Philly shows but GA for Baltimore if you manage to make it there. :)

    I've been to Seattle (not seen PJ there) - some of the people there can surprise you with their standoffishness, kind of a passive aggressive thing. Like I've been to a lot of places in Italy and people are very kind, but definitely not in Lucca. That's how it goes.

    Hell of a first concert! Welcome aboard. You've probably been bit by the bug now. Based on your questions, here are some tips from a grizzled concert veteran:

    1. If you want to jump around try to scout out an area where others are doing the same. For better or worse you really should match the energy of the people you're around in GA.

    2. Tall people standing in front of you will always be an issue. Sometimes you have to move around.

    3. Hate to say it but I most definitely do not want to talk to a stranger in the middle of a show. I'm there for the performance. You can try chatting people up between sets and I'm sure you'll find people happy to talk.
    Hey! Oh no I wasn’t trying to talk during the show, I was too mesmerized and in awe. I just tried to speak before the show as we all stood in the pit, but all I really got were looks? So I just gave up and decided to enjoy the music. Wasn’t easy to move around, a lot of people didn’t want to give up their “spot” but I don’t think letting in a shorter person in would’ve made a difference. I also just decided to stay mellow because Jill and the girls were right behind me and I didn’t wanna accidentally bump into them. But you’re right! I have been bit by the bug! The music is the most important thing after all :)
    Ah ha....gotcha. Yeah, honestly even between sets can be hit or miss. I'm more up for chatting up a stranger if I happen to be at a show solo. If I'm there with friends it's an opportunity to catch up with them.

    I guess my main point is don't take it personally and also don't stop trying! And also that going to lots of shows is great and it is highly likely you will become friends with a few of the people you chat up if that's what you're looking for. So keep on keeping on on all fronts.

    Yea I was very surprised, especially by the people in the pit.. maybe it was the age gap? I dunno.. maybe I’ll make it to Baltimore! But being solo in the pit was kinda frightening for me.. can’t go solo I guess

    This New Yorker had an amazing 3 days in Seattle, 2 great shows, the band was on fire.  Loved chatting with fans throughout the trip, especially the NY / Chicago women N1 in 101 with us and the California couple N2 in 113.  Can't wait for the East Coast run !

    Amazing first show for you!!!  My wife and I were in the pit (dead center / 10 feet back) and I was jumping around like a lunatic (Citizen Dick t shirt)!!  Next time look for a guy wearing sunglasses losing his mind, and we will definitely talk to you!  I think your experience is not typical, usually the PJ tribe is super friendly and genuinely interested in making these special connections we all find ourselves making.

    What a run for me (2x LV and 2x SEA) and every show was extremely special in their own way.  Last night was basically flawless for me, from the Black opener into a searing Immortality.  Other highlights were In My Tree (ALWAYS a highlight for me), Come Back, LBC, Hurt, Pilate, Jeremy (same thing / always love it) and as always, the new stuff really rules live.  And again, Deep Sea Diver slayed.  Really love them.  Thank you PJ!  See you guys in the pit on the east coast in Sept!
    That’s so sweet! Damn I wish I saw ya! I was short so I couldn’t see much! Which shows are you seeing in the east coast? I flew in from New York for Seattle N2
    Good stuff!  For the next US leg I’ve got Chi x2, NYx2, Philly x2, Baltimore and Boston x2. Oh and probably Ohana.  If you are up for traveling again, def come to Ohana.  It’s unreal.

    Amazing night. Band and crowd were on fire the whole show. Eddie was very emotional throughout and especially the end when they walked off the stage. You can tell it meant a lot to the band being in their hometown and the performance reflected that too. 

    Hurt was incredible.
    Hurt was SO good.  Felt very special and definitely super emotional.  Had such a blast and need to meet up next time!  Hopefully see you on tour later this year bud!

    First time attending an event at Climate Pledge Arena. Sat row 23 Floor and was surprised by how intimate the venue felt.
    Fantastic show and really cool to hear about where everyone worked...Eddie razzing Stone about working at Gossard Hardware was a highlight.
    Was at both Vancouver shows and the band seems to really be nailing the DM stuff now. First time hearing Black as an opener. Agree with comments on Hurt. Very emotional and a nice take by Eddie.
    Was on the fence about an east coast show and this may have been the tipping point on finding a way out there.
    Very grateful for such a wonderful experience.

    That’s so cool! I actually was gonna go to ohana first and then had to cancel the layaway plan, all the hotels were booked and I got scared traveling so far by myself as a young female. Wish I could’ve gone though!

    I can't overstate how much I enjoyed them. I saw all ten of their sets and it never got old. Great songs, great performance, fun to watch.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    I've been to some of their most notable shows and I put this one right up there with them. I'm still riding the wave a few days later. Starting with Black was great--the surprise of it, the lighting, the walk on stage, the song itself. Set the tone for a special night, and it felt special, if not a bit wistful and reflective from time to time. It was a home show and I could relate to some of Ed's comments, talking about the area, the losses, the changes and all. The new Dark Matter material fit in great--remarkably so, like a glove, b/w some of the old standards. Several special crowd interaction moments throughout the show. The crowd was great--fun to see so many different PJ shirts out there. I hope they come back soon and wish them all well.

    Could not agree more.  Really love them.

    So glad to hear I'm not alone on how of a great show it was.  I'm late to hitting as many shows as possible but working hard to catch up.  This was my 6th show (1st time in Seattle - bucket list!) and thought it was the best so far.  Hitting 5 more on the 2nd US leg this fall (both Wrigley, MSG 1 and both Fenway) and can't wait to soak in even more of the PJ experience.  Fenway will be my first time(s) in the pit (both nights) and being from the Boston area, I couldn't ask for more.  Well, maybe for them to play SBWM....haven't heard that live yet and would love to.

    I ordered the Impossible Weight CD from their Bandcamp site and I'm very excited that it arrived today.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    Seattle N2 title: A Surge of Emotion
    I briefly saw Leah Julius (Thunderpussy's bassist) at the KEXP pre-party. Then the rest of the band while standing in the queue outside Entry 10. Also, Tom Morello took a picture of the Entry 10 queue together with the big Dark Matter banner. A quite emotional set: I had goosebumps during Inside Job, and the "We done all we can do" part of Something Special :cowboy:

    Emotional set for sure. You could see Eddie throughout the whole show go through a wave of emotions. After Setting Sun he shook the other band members hands and you could see it all over his face this was a heavy show for him.

    I’m late on this but thank you Seattle for a great time. It was my 14th show, first time in Seattle. Flew out from Philly with my cousin, kind of last minute. We flew in the night before the show and left the morning after (kids and jobs) but had a blast. Met so many great people and had a great time talking to them. Amazing show, great venue, GREAT crowd, just a fantastic time. I will definitely be back for a longer visit to Seattle, but just wanted to say thanks to the best band and the best fans for an awesome time.

    Great show and setlist! Half of the time I was just standing there in awe since it was my very first pj concert. Felt a bit sad since I wanted to jump around in the pit, but the people around me were kinda standoffish.. and I’m super shy and didn’t want to get any more looks.. tried to speak to some but they just curtly responded and turned back around. Also - all the tall guys were in the front, probably first 10 rows of mostly tall people, so the stage wasn’t too visible. Regardless of that, still was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, purely based on music and how humble and salt of the earth this band is. Being in my early 20s, it was surreal as my first concert ever - long live PJ!

    Sorry for being tall and showing up early?
    No longer overwhelmed it seems so simple now.

    Lol if that was what you got from all of that, cool? I was actually there early, and I didn’t mention it saying it’s bad being tall, just that it sucked for me being a short girl..  I tried to move around but most of the tall folk wouldn’t budge or let me through.. but with that comment I’m guessing you were there? Regardless of visibility, we can both agree it was an amazing show ❤️
