Oh yeah that one too... somewhere after Under Pressure I believe? 32 Songs! 3 1/2 hours! Only guest besides Butch was somebody from DC. Bad Brains member if I'm not mistaken. All the band members from Scream were also in the crowd.

Opened with Winnebago!!!!

Dave also stated that he was going to play a song they used to close with.

I was up front and yelled "Exhausted?!"

He looked right at me with a grin "Yeeah".

That is a nice setlist, and I guess a hint of what to expect in the way of S/T being played on the 20th anniversary. What I expected really, just the songs they still like.

I remember thinking the same at the UK secret gigs in September. There was a considerable number of songs off S/T played much to the elation of all those in the crowd. Happy for all the lucky folks who got to appreciate

I am awake and recovering, my feet are killing me but SO glad we went. I decided I couldn't handle the "mosh pit" in front of the stage, as much as I really would've liked to have been closer to the band. But there was bona fide stage diving as well as crowd surfing at the show, and I'm a little too old for that at this point, haha. Instead I was right next to the sound board, in the raised bar section. Straight-on view over everyone's heads at stage height. Didn't snag a chair but the gal next to me was kind enough to let me stand right next to her. I hope she didn't regret that decision when I went crazy dancing on my favorite songs.

Cool thing about the stage diver? Security was going to throw him out, but Dave got them to bring him back in and give him a second chance. The guy did not try it again.

Dave also did the "walk to the bar" schtick again, but did not get up on top of the bar this time. Tons of people with their phones out filming him getting a Jaegermeister shot. He brought it to the stage, walked up to his mic, got off the stage into the crowd -- waving away a security guy in the process -- and it seemed like he shared the shot with the people in front. Pretty funny.

There were also a couple of guys right up front smoking pot. Toward the end of the show they started deliberately blowing it in Dave's face. Before the band quit for the night, Dave made some comments about "Cheech & Chong down here in front" and seemed genuinely annoyed by it.

Was anyone else unhappy with the quality of the sound? Maybe it was different up front, but from where I was it seemed like the drums were mixed too high -- the snare was *really* sharp -- and my husband observed the sound guy having trouble tweaking Dave's vocals and getting visibly frustrated by it. There were times when I couldn't hear Dave singing at all.

I like the Washington-specific tshirt I got, which included a bonus tag for a free download of the album. They also had poster-size prints of the show flyer. seanst98036, I hope you got one of those.

Still wish I had gotten a little closer to the band, but all in all it was a great experience!

Nice write up. Two points, however. There was no stage diving. Stage diving is when a fan gets on stage, turns around and makes a dive back into the audience. He just crowd surfed and was plopped on stage and led off by security, who intended to throw him out of the venue until Dave stepped in.

Second, Dave was not annoyed by the pot smoking. Dave had that guy moved to the front row BECAUSE he was smoking. I was right at the front and Dave most certainly wasn't annoyed.

The sound was very good right up front. No issues at all.

Hopey, that Washington Shirt is badass. I got one for myself as well. Then my brother in law stripped it from my shoulders as I was making my way up front and so I thought I had lost it for the night. Haha.

I ended up getting a 11x14 version of that flyer off the door when buying tickets the other day but that super sized version was tempting!

I agree the sound of the guitars had overpowered Dave's voice quite a bit and it really shows in some video clips I took. It's a little disappointing because that venue is usually associated with great sound. Maybe the mixing sounded a little better in back though? It probably didn't help that I was standing directly in front of those heavy set hanging speakers for the majority of the show too.

Yeah Sherman can get a little cocky. He was just "Shhhhing" all the haters though. I can understand the hate for him being similar to why I don't like Kaepernick or Jim Harbaugh. I don't quite understand the Pete Carroll hate though. Other than his college "cheating" days, he seems like one of the most likeable coaches in NFL.

Oh, and I had a BLAST! Tell Dave and gang thanks for rocking our faces off! Haha. This was definitely the best show out of the 8+ times I've seen them live and that is saying a lot. They never disappoint.

Pete Carrol's success is one of the signs of the apocalypse.

I normally don't like to do this at shows, but so much awesomeness was being put out on stage I couldn't resist. As soon as Dave confirmed Exhausted was the upcoming song they were going to play I whipped out my phone with excitememt. Then for some reason my recorder wouldn't work. Not sure why since I have about 13gb of free space on my phone. So all I got was the opening riff. I'm sure the band doesn't appreciate people recording their stuff anyways so it was probably for the best.

Edit: I didn't see any South African people in the crowd, but I do know comedian Jeff Ross was there!

I am a Bruin, so Stanford is hurting me right now, however I did like them when I was in high school. SC always has cheating scandals, he was so onboard. He also had his grad student girlfriend stay in the Malibu house the school let him have, so he could meet her there. When he got caught, he claimed she was doing research there for the football team. His wife pretended to buy it. Pure scum.
