Thursday night I went to see foo fighters and rise against. I had been looking forward to it for months. I planned to take Friday off because the show was in Columbus ( 2 hour drive) and I wouldn't get home until real late so a 7 am start time wasn't happening. I left work early to make sure I would get there on time. Thanks to our piece of trash president that got ruined. It took me 2 hours to make a 10 minute drive thanks to grid lock from his visit. Once I got out of traffic I did about 90 the rest of the way. I got to the venue right when the lights cut out before rise against.

Rise Against
I had not seen them in about 5 years when they were on warped tour. I am a big fan so I was very excited. They played about 40 minutes. Spread the songs out over their entire catalogue pretty well except only one song off of siren songs of a counter culture. But that happened to be my favorite rise against song. Give it all. It was played second to last and I was excited and ready to run around but the crowd was pretty weak no movement just some bouncing every once in a while. They played everything great and I was happy with the set. I can't wait to see them headline a show.

Foo Fighters
Simply amazing. Everything they played was done perfect the stage was awesome looking the light show was spectacular the crowd sang louder than any other show I have ever been too and Dave worked the crowd really well. They played 2 hours and 45 minutes. Longest set I had ever seen. I cannot wait to see them again. Even if you just know of them from the radio and somewhat like them you should go see them they will not disappoint.

That's a great set. I was hoping for A Matter Of Time though. Either way that'll be a great time :party:
