There was Irish band playing, and they were pretty good, but as the night wore on some other guys came to sit in and the energy level just shot up 10x. Started talking to one of them and turned out it was some of the Pogues. I think it was Spider we talked to.
So I bought some albums and have enjoyed them for years, so it was great to have them come play 15 minutes from the house.
The crowd seemed a little tame, but we were seated in the balcony. Down on the floor things looked very lively. The band sounded great, far exceeded my expectations. Required Shane report: He shuffled out from stage right - there was stool set up for him - he walked right past the stool and exited stage left - then he came back out and stood. He knocked the microphone stand early on (he'd do this a couple of times) but picked it up and put the mic back with no trouble. He pulled the same gag of walking across the the stage a couple of times. After a couple of songs, I guess it was apparent he wouldn't be needing his seat and it was pushed to the back.
Justin Townes Earle was quite good, by the way.
Terrific show. Worth every penny of the ticket price!

of the band that-
Moshing will occur at the front of the stage area
If you dont want to mosh you should probably vacate that area
There is no such thing a personal space in a mosh pit
