Moondance Jam - Walker, MN (7/20)
A friend of mine was running FOH there and got myself and a friend in for free, so we made the trek up to Walker from Minneapolis to attend the show last night. We arrived around 7:00 and as we were walking around, I think I was the only person there wearing an Offspring shirt (2009 tour shirt, as they hadn't set up the merch yet). Anyways, Halestorm was on when we arrived. They aren't really the type of band I'd get into, but they sounded great regardless. Theory of a Deadman played next, and they were, without a doubt, the most atrocious band I've ever heard. They got done around 10:15 or so, and then we made our way up to the front. They finally went on around 11:00 and played an AWESOME set:
All I Want
Come Out and Play
Days Go By
Have You Ever
Staring at the Sun
Want You Bad
Dividing by Zero
Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell
Gotta Get Away
Why Don't You Get a Job?
You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)
The Kids Aren't Alright
(Can't Get My) Head Around You
After looking at previous set lists from this tour, they decided to play Dividing By Zero instead of Kristy (an excellent decision if you ask me) and we also got Walla Walla! Although, this was probably the worst crowd I've ever seen. I'm fairly confident that my friend and I were one of the only ones there who knew the words to anything other than Pretty Fly, Get a Job?, and Self Esteem. It did feel somewhat awkward screaming every word to every single song by yourself, as the rest of the crowd up front stood there in complete silence it seemed like. Typical of the festival crowd I guess.
That being said, the band sounded great! Although the crowd sucked, I thought this was a great set list. Dividing By Zero/Slim Pickens sounds so great live, and I'm so glad they played them both. I wish they would have played The Future Is Now, but I'm not complaining. I didn't get any videos (there will be pro-shot footage online at some point), but I did get some pictures, and I'll post those a bit later. I picked up an awesome shirt as well. It's the Slim Pickens art work on the front, with "Ride the bomb to Hell" on the bottom with the the tour dates on back.
