Not that I want to get this thread off-topic, but I think you've got to remedy that situation sometime soon, bro. I mean, don't get me wrong - I hate waiting in line more than just about any other form of torture I can imagine, and having to do it with some of the biggest goofballs in society (i.e., the American general public) makes it even worse - plus, the weather was hot as balls. However, Cedar Point really is one of the premier thrill parks in the country - and for that matter, the entire world. That Dragster is an absolute mother fucker of a ride - I mean, it accelerates you to around 120 MPH in less than four fucking seconds . So are the Millennium, Maverick and Maxair (the "three M's", as I like to call them), and a bunch of other stuff, too. I can only force myself to go about once a year, but I always have a blast when I do (and now that I have kids, I think that number will probably be going up)

tl;dr: It's worth the pain, but mainly because it's one of the best coaster parks in the entire world.

I figured as much. I can't wait to see them live. They are one of the best new bands on the scene, IMO.

I'm pretty sure you're right - I just had to bust your chops. I'd be willing to bet they played a very similar set to what I heard last spring, probably with some extras thrown in because they had a longer set time. Last time, they played:

Omniscient
Machine
Negative Reversal
Below the Cusp
Lightning in His Hand
Chronosphere
The Sapphire Falcon
Red Tide
Five Daggers
Storm Shadow

...and I'm betting they may have thrown in some favorites such as "Thrown From Great Heights", "El Equis" and "Swords for Teeth" this time.

The set lengths do make it look that way, but I fully expected that SBL would be on first, because HOWL is on the entire tour, but SBL is only for selected dates.
