Honestly, if you're an extreme computer noob and cannot use a computer, for fuck's sake please do realize it's only so far we can help you out until you're just dragging tech support down with you. I understand that it's help desk's job to help you poke around your computer and whatever, but dammit when your beyond hopeless and are very aware that you are, yet still expect empathy beyond the 90th minute; I hope the next time you get on the phone with help desk you'll get some bastard of a prankster blaring the brown note down your ear. Either that or a fucking vuvuzela from hell.
I missed the Mastadon part of the show because some old lady couldn't understand the concept of when a prompt gives you an option on either 'Next' or 'Cancel' and it's the tech supports job to simply install a program, you don't necessarily have to hear the poor sucker on the other end of the line say, "Yes", just for you to go ahead and proceed with the installation. I NEEDED to hear 'Divinations' live. That guitar solo would raise the dead. And I bought a dead chicken for just so an occasion, only to be screwed over by Madam Noob I was telling you about. Sucks.
Whatever anyway, I got to the show after a 30 minute delay. Finally getting to sit in my chair I'm surprised that I meet a group of really cool people who. We all started talking simply because some lady lost her cell phone and we all witnessed the woman next us track the user down. In admiration of her sleuth skills, we all became fast friends.
Deftones take the stage. Never been to a Deftones concert and I was expecting for the roof to cave in from their being too damn awesome. No surprise, they were really good live, but I honestly not the best to listen to it seems in a gigantic arena like the Garden. I was hoping they played 'Cherry Waves' but no dice. Oh well, 'Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)' had the standard crowd going berserk along with 'Engine No. 9'.
Alice in Chains are the headliners - and for good damn reason. Every song they delivered was pure gold. Jerry Cantrell is absurdly good on that axe and Duvall really can bring it home with his vocal range. Honestly, I wasn't much of an AC fan. But Cantrell has is just too talented to ignore.
