NINJA! because NIN + JA = NINja! haa haa! Its been a while since I've gone to a concert, the last one was Weezer at MSG. And that was back in oct/nov. I'm getting old, back in the day I'd be going to concerts at least once a month or more, whatever band was playing in nyc I'd see them. It be standing room only, I'd be in the general admission area. I'd get my wristband on and run in. I'd get tossed around, kicked, elbowed, thrown around in the pit, and then come back out alive miraculously. My guy friends always wondered how I came out alive. course i'd be amazingly banged up, bruised, and sore, but hell I'd have an awesome time! Oh to be young again!
look a wristband. oh memories. jones beach was all hard up on knowing exactly where you sat. like wtf? they ripped my NINJA tix! Bastards! its like seriously, if ppl wanted to sneak in they would. being a dick about it won't exactly help.
yes I was right next to the water. See the boat? see the trucks? Load in must have been fun.
the venue, not totally full yet, but it will be.
check out the parcans!
yes that is Tom Morello from Rage against the machine. Really. He's in this band called Social club. From where I was sitting, I saw the lead singer walk by and Tom. Literally right by me, since I had the aisle seat. And that's where the ppl went to go backstage and such. I saw groupies galore walk by. Ugly ones, pretty ones, OLD ones, ones that dressed really bad, wannabe ones, and one ugly skank one, that pretty much banged everyone on the crew to get backstage, only to get rejected by the guy at the door. kinda funny. she dressed so skanky and trashy. The guy was like no u can't go backstage. and she was like i left my bag there! And the guy was like no! Then she stops and says she dropped her stepped on cigarette. It was just pathetic. Like cmon, everyone knows you're the trashy groupie that never gets backstage all the way, and you banged everyone on crew from the parking lot into the venue and got rejected to go backstage. Sad indeed.

JA on stage, aka janes addiction, and yes that is dave navarro!
JA rocking. I don't really know their stuff, but they were good live.
their colorful set
now its really dark.
It rained towards towards the end of their set before their encore. I was like damn. Rain. it rained pretty hard for a few min and then stopped for their encore. All in all an amazing show and an amazing set. Though I have nothing to really be mad at these days, I mean really mad at, I'm pretty happy. Its weird I know.
