wanted to go see them san luis, but no money.
definitely want to go see them this year, seeing as i've been asking for them be added for the past couple years.

I saw them at Warped Tour last year and they were really good.
I do however prefer thier earlier acoustic stuff. They dont play that anymore. And If they do, they play it on electric guitar... and its just not the same.
That being said, I still will probably check them out again.

ive been a fan of theirs for a while. i saw them on their last tour at the glass house and was kind of upset, not with their performance, but with the crowd. back in the day it was more about singing along with the guy next to you instead of trying to beat the shit out of him. the band commented on the jerks however and things kind of settled. still, im hoping they play more of their earlier stuff. searching for a former clarity was disapointing. im really hoping for the best witht their new album.

I saw Against Me!! for the first time last week and thought they were really good. They started their set by playing 45 minutes straight. One thing there is too much of in music today is boy bands that play their own instruments and try to act like a punk band. Against Me!! is more like an old school punk band which I think is great.

I saw them about a year ago in Pomona. Pretty rad show then; I'm sure coachella will be rad too.

I saw them last year and they were great.

I'm hoping they play a fair bit of Reinventing Axl Rose/As The Eternal Cowboy stuff though, cos I don't know the words to the newer songs. Though I'd imagine, what with a new album out soon, it'll be mostly Searching For A Former Clarity and new songs.

Ah well, I'm sure we'll get Pints Of Guinness and Sink Florida Sink, and it'll be fun either way.

I dunno, Against Me! got a lot of criticism from the newer albums and regardless of what anyone says they know which songs of theirs are the better ones and which ones the fans love most and I feel they're very passionate about putting on great shows for their audiences. I'm expecting Miami, From Her Lips to God's Ears, and/or Probems from Searching for a Former Clarity; maybe a 1 or 2 new songs, and the remaining 40 minutes will be off Axl Rose, as the Eternal Cowboy, and a dash of Don't Lose Touch.
