Finally, I get to go to something! :) I feel bad, though, because I have no head for remembering set lists. I think someone from here got the set list from the 'stage,' though, so maybe they'll post it? They opened with "Days Go By" and played "The Future Is Now," and then played a few songs they don't play often like "One Fine Day." I requested "Forever and a Day" and they almost played it but then they didn't. :( [I almost requested "I'll Be Waiting," but then figured I might as well request "Basket Case" because that would be equally obnoxious. So, I didn't.]

It was fun as hell. It was a little strange, because I need a few beers in me before I start singing along to stuff, and it was a really small crowd in the middle of the day. But then we got free tacos. And, I got a guitar pick. It has Offspring-ish artwork on it. Woooo!

My photos didn't come out but someone was shooting for Offspring.com, so there will be lots of photos.

Awesome! Two friends of mine got to go to that show.

One of them, Sil, got Dexter to talk to me on the phone! It was freaking awesome, he remembered who I was! How awesome is that? :D

I have the set-list:
Days Go By
The Future Is Now
You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
Dirty Magic
Self Esteem
The Kids Aren't Alright
Burn It Up
One Fine Day
Staring At The Sun
Bad Habit

I'm pretty sure it's not in order, though.

Congrats, Little Miss! Seems like you had a good time!

That's a pretty awesome set :)

I think that is you in my picuture Little_Miss_1565 :)
That was the most surreal experience of my life. I thought NOTHING could top Alex's bar show, and I pretty much told God, that he would not her me asking for favours so soon. BUT THEN, something like this happens, where I win tickets and pretty much got to hang out with other 20 lucky fans, plus the band and free food? WHAT THE HELL? I really thought my alarm clock was going to start screaming at any point and I would realise that this was all an amazing dream...but no, it was real...or wasn't? :)

Wow, looks like a great event to have been at! Glad you (and others) had fun! And very cool set list!! Burn it Up?? AWESOME.

Also, best photobomb ever. Having the Offspring bbs mod photobomb your picture of the setlist + the Offspring themselves? Actually, what is that a picture of? Lol. Were you trying to take a picture of Dexter and Noodles, or that list of songs? Or was it all a setup because you really wanted a picture of our moderatrix, but you didn't want her to know you were taking it? ;)

All I wanted was to get a picture with the Dexter and Noodles on the background with something that would sugest I went to that event, since photos were not allowed inside.

Seconded. I didn't know that a girl who spends so much time moderating an internet forum could be so beautiful.

I wish I lived in California. Sounds like there's a lot of good shows around there.

Aw, shucks you guys. I'm glad that I still look good in a photo where I accidentally show up blurry in the background. :)

Cool to hate, bummed I didn't get to meet you in person.

I also just want to say that Dexter and Noodles are super nice and also awesome. I didn't get to talk to Greg or Pete (or Todd), so fuck those guys :mad:. No, seriously, it was just a cool, chill hang with friends and family in attendance. Oh, and if you're not jealous enough yet, we also got cookies before the band's set. Best show ever!

Nah, they passed them out really nicely. Peanut butter cookies with a Hershey's Kiss in the middle. They were soft and delicious.

I'm going to bed hungry... ar least I have a drummer who works in a bakery and takes all kinds of sweetness at rehearsals...tomorrow is the day! :D

still, 2012 seems a wonderful year to be an offspring fan, they're really the best, can't and won't stop saying it

Now I actually wanna meet LM and have a beer or coffee with her. I would died of a massive hearty attack if they played Forever and a Day, which sort of defeats the purpose of requesting it :D

hope that when they come to argentina this year or next, that they will have this same enthusiasm about this of doing rehearsals and other stuff so we can meet them too, but one thing, no more cookies that's for Sissies, just the music, beer, smokes and girlsss ! :cool:

I literally know how you feel - my one weekend out of town ended up being the Ignition show, the Weenie Roast, and the video shoot. It's like they had a meeting and were all "OK Sarah's out of town, quick, let's do everything!" ;)

I can't tell you how much it makes me grin when I see that I once drunkenly contributed something horribly stupid to the board that would never, ever die :D

It's not as awesome, though, as when someone says that irony is like taking off your shoe and there's a hand there instead of a foot.
