Sunday I got the opportunity to go to Epicenter 2010 to check out some live music, something I haven’t done in a while. The downside was that it was in Fontana, valley of the dirty people. And as everyone in Southern California knows, it was hot. Very hot.
The photos that look like they were taken from within 50 feet of the stage are courtesy of KROQ. The ones shot from a long distance are mine. Why? Because I’m old now and afraid some young kids will trample me, while I’m trying to figure out what shutter speed to use. Rock and roll isn’t what it used to be for me. The days of mosh pits are gone.
Bad Religion has been making awesome music for thirty years. That’s as long as I’ve been alive. He rhetorically asked what changed over the years in music, but I have an answer. You’re wearing a polo shirt, and you look like my high school principle! That’s what changed.
I’d heard that 30 Seconds to Mars sucks live. They do, but it’s not because they don’t hit their notes. It’s because Jared Leto is douche bag.
The guy had a blond mullet and kept trying to get the crowd to sing along, when clearly not enough people knew the words to his songs. I paid for a ticket. You, sing!
This was a nice follow up to Jared Leto. Rise Against killed. They are so good live. Epicenter was the last show before they head back into the studio to record a new album. I can’t wait.
I never realized that Tim has one brown eye and one blue eye.
Last but certainly not least was Blink 182, the soundtrack to my college years.
This was also their last show before heading into the studio to record new music. I will be so happy when they bump Phoenix, MGMT, and Linkin Park off the air.
