Well, there we were, headlining at the same place where I saw the '92 Lollapalooza, and the '96 Weenie Roast where KISS put on their first original line-up + full makeup gig since 1979. Could the weez dominate such a massive venue? Hell yeah, as it turned out! This was the biggest headlining weezer show ever, with over 15,000 peeps in attendance! This show put the recent record setting Philly show [14,500] into second place, and the Chicago United Center show from last fall [13,000] into 3rd place. What a blast! Tonight the documentation dept [me] was supplemented with Rod and his 16mm film movie cameras. Assuming the footage comes out good, this should yield some really cool looking stuff for future use. It was pretty hectic for Rod up there, as film isnt something you can rush and bounce around with like my videocameras. But Rod is a pro. Speaking of pro's, All the bands tonight rocked it out STRONG. Tonight the Second Stage was joined by Third Grade Teacher, a firey and fun rock outfit who previously opened for the weeez at the Troubador back in 2000.
