    About one minute into their set, Jeff came flying into the crowd, and I caught a flying knee to the head. He also dove into the pit and actually got the pit to stop because he was rockin’ so goddamn hard. Winning!

    oh, also, THQ launched 10,000 balloons. A ton of them ended up in SF Bay. The city is PISSED.

    Haha, I don’t know if anyone who was there noticed a cop watching at the top of the stairs. I think he was about to lose his shit after he saw Greg hand off a beer to a kid in the crowd. This show really was the “best lunch evaar”.

    oh man, security caught a kid and his girlfriend smoking weed, and when he kicked them out the kid started bitching about how other people were gonna smoke weed, even tho no one else really did.

  • napalmthechild

    That’s hilarious. It must’ve happened real quick because I didn’t catch a whiff of any weed. I felt bad for the two guys giving presentations though (not the live 105 guys), it must’ve been really awkward because most people didn’t seem to give a shit about the game or what they were saying.

    Crowd: “DILLINGER!”

    Proving once again why this is the best band around.

    the kid comparing his combover to that guy’s combover was the snicker moment of the show. People tried so hard not to laugh…

  • http://livingwellisthebestwhat.blogspot.com Obi-Juan Valdez

    …and of course, the people who had no idea what the hell was going on. Oh my god, those were the people who were waving the flags they gave out, thinking it was nothing more than a game promotion. They’re also the ones who got the hell out of there once the pit broke out.

    I am filled with hateful jealousy.

  • PDXposeur

    I like my Dillinger with less crappy Rapcore and more 43% Burnt. Weak shit.

  • Surly

    ^^Are you on drugs?

  • napalmthechild

    You’re not kidding about those that had no idea what was going on. I had to tell a guy to close his umbrella because it was going to get “fucked up” and he looked at me all offended. It wasn’t me or my friend who was with me that was going to fuck it up, but it could’ve been The DEP themselves. Yea, that guy ended up walking to the back of the crowd as soon as DEP started.

  • Undertow101

    I hope to god they go this ape shit at the Deftones Tour.

  • http://livingwellisthebestwhat.blogspot.com Obi-Juan Valdez

    some lady asked me “are you familar with this band?” and I said, “yeah, the Dillinger Escape Plan. They’re fucking awesome.” As the band hit the stage, the last thing I said to her was “try not to get hurt.”

  • BurnAtlanta

    So sick. Wish I would have made the drive.

  • PDXposeur

    @Surly, Yes.

  • allichs

    badass, I wish I was there

  • ballsofmetal

    wish i was there too. I’d probally would have ended up naked and drunk lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    I wish the 43% Burnt crowd would go away. Yes, we know Calculating Infinity was great. Yes, we know you don’t like anything after it. I guess the irony is lost on the fans that claim they love how groundbreaking and original DEP is yet only wants to hear the same album over and over again.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    ^ that, I prefer new DEP, I’ll take Miss Machine, Ire Works, and Option Paralysis all day

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    @jay, I completely agree. I love the old stuff but I think they got much better after Greg joined.

  • adamonfire

    DEP’s biggest contribution to music was allowing Chris Pennie to warm-up for Coheed.

  • Kent Brockman

    @adamonfire
    Sometimes it’s hard for me to decide whether you are joking or are just a faggot.

  • dtlmetal

    @kent brockman – the latter.

    @american natemare – agreed. it definitely got more ecclectic and interesting after Greg joined. i personally wouldn’t want another calculating infinity. that record is soooo good, sure, but i think they said what needed to be said with that record. Greg’s vocals allow them to go in so many other directions as well as what they’ve done before which i think they still incorporate extremely well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    @Dtlmetal Thats the one thing I didn’t like about Dimitri. He really only had one way with his vocals.
    Cool story, I saw Gregs 3rd show which was Krazy Fest and literally 20 seconds into the set, he threw a mic stand into the river behind the stage and Bens guitar at/into the crowd. It was amazing.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    I saw them at the First Unitarian Church in Philly last year, it’s literally the basement of a church, it was so hot, It looked like the crowd was in the shower with their clothes on. Shit was insane. Dmitri is an important footnote to the beginning of DEP, but Greg is the face of the band and has been for like 5 times longer than Dmitri was. With all due repect to Dmitri, in terms of ability it’s Greg in a landslide.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    That church in Philly is awesome. I used to drive from Dayton, Ohio all the time for shows there. Usually Breaking Pangaea.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    @nate breaking pangaea, fuck yeah, I love how Fred Masch rips himself off using BP lyrics in his subsequent projects. He’s not sure if he wants to be THE GUY or not. The man in BP, joins TBS, battles Adam Lazarra for spotlight, leaves to do solo project, being the man again, now in Terrible Things with Andy Jackson and Josh Eppard. Seems to be walking a fine line between wanting to being in control and wanting to be famous. At least that’s what it seems to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    I’ve been friends with Fred for over a decade now and he pretty much just kinda loves making music. I was so glad when he left TBS because he was miserable. I’d kill for BP to play again.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    I think BP has a legit chance at at least more shows. As far as Fred, I wasn’t trying to put him down, I’m a huge fan of his, Cannon To A Whisper is an important album to me, loved his work in TBS, A Color Fred was ok, I like his new project a lot, think it has a chance to be big. One-Eighty By Summer is my favorite Fred moment by far, there is a video on youtube of that song “live”, I used that term loosely, because it seems like they spliced it together, that I watch everyday. It just seems that he’s not sure what he wants musically, that he’s not comfortable staying in one spot for too long. With you knowing him I’m dying to know what caused the Fred/TBS downfall, in interviews and stuff he seemed kind of condescending towards the other members, It seemed like being the elder-statesman of the group he got annoyed easily at the younger bands immaturity and maybe even their work ethic.

  • will

    this show looked badass! wish I was in San Fran for this.
    and for my two cents, I prefer the Greg years.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    Greg is going on a twitter rant about jared leto right now, funny as hell

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    @Jay basically it came down to the fact that everything he would bring to the table song wise was shot down and he was pretty much just a cog in the Adam machine. It was a decision between being miserable in a money making band or being happy creating what you want which I assume was especially hard when you have a wife and 3 kids at home.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    @nate I figured it was something like that, having Matt Fazzi in the band was perfect because he could kind of tell him his place in the band, only problem was they made their worst album. That’s why I’m curious to see how long John Nolan and Shaun Cooper last, while it gives them their most credible line-up since Fred left, there are expectations attached to this line-up, people want to hear John, and I’m not sure if Adam will give up the reigns for any extended period of time. I hope I’m wrong we’ll see.

  • http://www.facebook.com/built.to.grind American_Natemare

    @Jay. I just think everyone is going to expect another Tell All Your Friends when they’ll probably get more of the lasy TBS album with John Nolan.
