So this was the 12th (?) time i've seen the ghost so lets wonder what opinion of the show i'm going to have.... good billy, in the back, i'm going to enjoy the show regardless of rashes or hernia's. So the opening band was called hitch I believe from holland. I may have gotten the name wrong as I.

good billy, in the back, i'm going to enjoy the show regardless of rashes or hernia's. So the opening band was called hitch I believe from holland. I may have gotten the name wrong as I am drunk, however for the $6 for the show, this show was worth every penny. Hitch was really good, ever since funeral oration, i've had a soft spot for the dutch punk rock. When the second song was instrumental, and the bassist looked like the stereotypical dutch rocker with wickedly long sideburns, I wanted to give him the horns.

Next was the volcom records band places to park.

So, anyway, next was EX-MODELS from new york. Entertaining, and a little more chaotic than the fare so far. I enjoyed the condescension to the audience, thumbs up.

The ghost played, and well scott, you missed them playing their OIL compilation song "they came to see you", as well as every song from the split with prosperity wallet, and a brand new song of which i dont know the name but rocked.

The two "ghost" girls as I'll call them, drop me a message cause we can coordinate hand gestures to the songs. Rock on.

The ghost were gabes house band this year, and dammit if they dont play a billion times next year.

Unfortunately, I couldnt stay to see the headliners engine down, though I've heard good things.

I disavow this review. Not that I didn't love the ghost, but just this review. wyzo 2011 is ashamed of this review, let it be known.

Engine Down is not boring, Engine Down is hypnotic. Rarely have bands evolved as much as they have.

yeah...i dont care if i was drunk, i was bored and wrote the review. if it made your quality of life less, than good, its really not going to stop traffic. I finally listened to some engine down and uh, they're boring. real boring.

I couldnt have stayed for them if i had wanted to so deal with it.

Most over rated band of the year? They're not even very popular and have very little real hype. Sure, they play at firside a lot, but people come don't they? You don't have to like them, but everything they have, they deserve. They're on tour 90% of the year and play to no one most of the time. What a pointless thing to complain about.

Fuck The Ghost. Seriously. Everyone needs to put their dicks back in their pants because The Ghost is the most over-ratted band of the year. I am so sick of having to see that piece of shit band open for other bands at the fireside because the lead singer works there. I feel awful handing that guy my money. What a joke.

Holy shit, this is the worst review ever. If your drunk reviews come out this bad, maybe you shouldn't write reviews while drunk. And goddamn, if you're going to miss the headliners, as least give us some details on the rest of the bands.

man, i cant beleive you didnt stay for engine down. while the ghost is damn good. engine down is not a band to be missed. one word for the reviewer -> LAME

way too many shows in the review section, they take up alot of space, and how much can you learn from sum 41 show review 46?

anyway, im going to check out engine down, I had to drive an hour and a half home so i had to leave early.

While I commend you on going to this show [and not even mentioning Places to Suck], the score above is for missing Engine Down.

I like the Ghost a lot, but I'd rather see Engine Down once than the Ghost ten times.
