Incredible band. Friend who worked a show they did at UCLA once said they were super nice people too (unlike some others, about whom he had less kind things to say).
I've only seen them once, in Chicago oddly enough, but it was super mesmerizing.

Oh man, they were incredible last night. Fourth time seeing them and by far the best (although I miss the intimacy of the ss coachella). Apparently i was having some serious o faces and spaz outs because Theresa said it sure looked like i was enjoying it. Next time I see them, I have to be tripping balls, no question.
"Undertow" was one of my all time greatest live moments between the sing along and all the surprises, especially Stella's extended drum bits.
I'll second the nighttime slot in a tent petition. Closing would be nice if it means they can play a little longer, because I'm greedy. Starting at like 1130 and then just going until curfew, for example.
Also, warheads can be pretty hardcore. I got in line at 5:40 because once I posted on craigslist that I would arrive early and hold a place in line in exchange for a ticket sale, the offers started pouring in. Figured I'd be the first one there, but people had been there all day, and most of the ones I talked to were also at the Pomona show.
I can't wait to hear the new album. The new stuff was some of the most impressive.
Man they were really great last night at el rey. It was my 5th time seeing them but it was great to finally see them play a full set. It's also kinda cool seeing the evolution of their new songs because when they first started playing them awhile ago I was really put off by them. But last night they sounded really dam good.
But man, fucking Stella. I would say she is one of the best drummers around right now male or female. She really adds a lot to those new songs.
And did anybody notice the girl to guy ratio last night. There were so many more girls it was kinda surprising.
