That was me. And I yelled "Better be short". But I like what you heard better.
The second band was so emo it hurt. It was terrible. They sucked hardcore. No crowd interaction and the singer couldn't hold a tune to save his life. Not to mention the drummer looked about ready to go into cardiac arrest any second.
As for the real reason I went to the show. Matt was excellent as always, but what really impressed me was the crowd. Kudos to keeping the drunken frat boys to a minimum.. and for giant.
2-3 minutes solid of "K-I-C-K-A-S-S" was fucking AWESOME. I'm sure they didn't intend to play that as an encore, but when an entire club is shouting for you to sing a song, you sing that song.
As a matter of fact, this was probably the best crowd I've seen in years.
Overall, great show.
I'd also like to thank the doorman, who sold us 3 more tickets after the show sold out. Which was lucky, since I drove to buffalo from toronto (and only missed the last tickets by 10 mins or so). Had me worried, but it all worked out in the end.
