    • 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!

      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”.

      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!”

    • …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.

      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.

    • 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.”

    • 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.

      @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.

    • @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.

    • 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.

    • @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.

    • 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.

    • @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.

    • @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.
