So it's been about two weeks since I've been back. I know I was supposed to keep you guys updated everyday out there and what not. But things just got busy with sightseeing during the day, and all the shows at night. We saw 8 different shows in 4 nights! Pretty hectic. But it was great. I got great footage of a lot of the bands. The first night we missed the Butthole Surfers. Kinda sucks cause I wanted to see them, but by the time we flew in, checked into the hotel, and grabbed a bite to eat, they had already played. All the shows were early ones. Ending no later than 10:30 or 11:00. Curfew for all the kiddies.
So as I mentioned before, I didn't get video of 7 Seconds, just audio. Got Kevin Seconds "acoustic" set though. (It was supposed to be acoustic, but no one had an acoustic guitar!) So I'll get that up later. Next night was No Empathy, Rights Of The Accused, & Naked Raygun. Showed up late so we missed No Empathy. Real bummer. Caught Rights Of The Accused, but only got first half on video. Some security jackass came around & made me stop recording. Even went as far as telling me to delete what I just recorded in front of him. So me not being a dumbass deleted another video in front of him. I at least got an audio recording of the rest of their show.
Then it was time for Raygun! Great show as always. They played a great set, about 23 songs in all. They even played 4 new songs! Or least ones I haven't heard before, so they should be new. My favorite new tune was Growing Away. (I think that's what it was called) Great classic sounding Raygun. So since I knew security was on the look out for me, I unfortunately couldn't record the whole show. I had to pick and choose songs to record. That really sucked. There's too many great songs! All in all I got about six of the 23 on video. Doesn't do justice I know, but what can ya do?! Again I at least got audio for the entire show so it wasn't a total loss. So here I got for you are two of the six videos & all 23 audio recordings. If you guys wanna see the other videos, let me know and I'll post those too. Stay tuned for more Riot Fest footage! Enjoy!
