Going to the FREE Offspring concert under the arch this Friday at 9pm. Will get some pictures and hopefully good recordings, and I hope to meet the band! It's a free show and everything is out in the open, including the stage, so it may be easier than at a festival or stadium concert.

Anyone else going? Hopefully they'll play more than a Greatest Hits setlist, but I'll even be happy with that. It'll my second time seeing them live. Here's to a guaranteed great show!

Awesome! Wanna meet some time? My girl and I are going for date night, so we can only say a quick hello, if you want.

Also, did you ever get a recording of the 2010 Maryland Heights show?

Sounds good man, I'll be there early probably, driving in from Kansas City, then back again only to have to work at 7 am the next day, it's going to be fucking rough.

I've got a couple of clips I'm sure you've seen, You will Find a way ;) and Guns of Brixton that's it from that show.

They played Hit That, I haven't heard that live in person since probably 2005 so that was slightly thrilling.

People need to realize that they should hold their phone in landscape when filming, it looks dumb otherwise, I'll have some videos up later too.

Awesome show last night! The setlist is correct. And my girlfriend and I met Noodles before the show! We walked the perimeter while the other band was playing, and saw him standing outside a trailer, and so I yelled his name, and he waved, then we went up to the covered fence and asked him to come over, which he obliged. We made some small talk, and he said he was just getting his smoke and drink before the show, and he signed my Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace and Days Go By booklets, and my girlfriend's Days Go By booklet (we didn't bring any others in case we met the rest of the band with Pete, we felt since he was involved with those tours it would be most appropriate, and we shouldn't bring thousands of things for them to autograph either, lest they get sick of us). It was really great of him to come over and say a few words and sign our things, and we shook his hand and parted ways. I also asked if we hung around after the show if we could get a picture or something, and he said yeah, maybe.

Onto the show, it was awesome and such high energy. Noodles smoked a cigar during one of the songs, and then put it under the strings up by his guitar's tuning pegs, and let it sit there before finishing it after the song. He also did a crazy drunken like dance during Self Esteem. Greg K did his standard dance, Pete rocked out on the drum set, and Dexter nailed every word and note. The crowd knew the songs, but I kept shouting Session, and nobody even looked at me in the crowd. Before Self Esteem, I started yelling "SESSION!" like crazy, and finally, some others joined me. I swear Dexter and Noodles looked in my direction when the crowd joined me in shouting it, but then they played Self Esteem and left.

We hung around after the show, trying to find the band, and were told that they all got in a van and left, that they were still there, that they were holed up for the night, etc. One of the local event staff was a jerk and when I called over the fence and politely asked him if they were gone or not (I even called him "sir"), and he just shook his head. Another bald guy I asked also just shook his head and walked away. We found a policewoman and she was really nice and said they hadn't left and pointed out their bus, and told us to walk around to the other side of the perimeter, and we did and saw Pete, Dexter, and Noodles. Although none of them came to us, Dexter was talking and the other two were back and forth. We called to Dexter when he was done, but he didn't even look our way and got on the bus. Oh well.

We did buy shirts and also got part of Greg's set list. One of the guys on stage tearing down asked what we were looking for and we asked for a setlist and he saw Greg's and carelessly started to take it off the stage and ripped it, then just tossed it off and walked away. Eh.

My girlfriend also got videos of most of Days Go By and a snippet of Come Out And Play (Keep 'Em Separated), and some really clear pictures. Will post those soon.

Overall, a fantastic night and a wonderful show! Let's hope they come back, and play more surprises.

How do I upload pictures? ImageShack says they're too big.

Oh, and Dexter told a short story about how he built a model of the Arch in the fifth grade. :)

If you have a google account try Picasa http://picasa.google.com that gives you access to a really neat basic photo editor as well as a place to store and share images online.

That's it, I brought my tripod but didn't have a very good place to set it up so it was just a few that I wanted to keep based on the setlist from Canada a few nights prior. They threw me a curveball with Hit That though, would've loved to have recorded that one.
