the boys were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. i would like to bow down and kiss James' feet because his guitar playing seriously made my night complete & was just breath taking. i heard people complaining about Andrew's voice the night before, but, he sounded perfect yesterday. I always die for his voice during Weekend Wars. *_* Just... they are a MUST SEE LIVE band. they play to perfection. 4th Dimensional Transition was soooo fucking great live! Don't get me started on Of Moons, Birds&Monsters. I fucking LOVE that song. It does something to you when you listen to it in MP3 form but that... live... oh my lord. Guitar solo is EXCELLENCE. AMAZING. WOW. ♥ ! They surprised me by playing Anything Could Happen. i don't know the original song, but, i have been listening to their cover ALL summer while i was away in Turkey. I seriously died when they played it. I also lost my pants when YO GABBA GABBA came on stage during Kids!!! ahahha it was SO AMAZING. I also never realized that i knew almost all of the lyrics to Siberian Breaks O.O aha. That song is amazing all in itself, but live? fantastic!!!! Someone's Missing was sooo amazing but supppper slow hahaha. I thought the show was so short, though :( they should have played every song haa. i was actually kind of really upset that they didnt do Pieces Of What. I know they did the night before. BUT AHH WELL! I was also hoping for an "Art Is Everywhere" performance after Yo Gabba Gabba was on the stage :'[

OKAY, now for my complaint. I HONESTLY didn't think it was as great as I expected because of the crowd. I shouldn't have done this, but, i was more confused and angry at the fans rather than enjoying myself. Andrew had to tell the whole damn venue to stand up when they came on. They didn't know half the songs, mainly Congratulations songs. I mean, I'm not going to sit here and say "DON'T COME! IT'S NOT AN ORACULAR SPECTACULAR TOUR. IT'S A CONGRATULATIONS TOUR" because that wouldn't make sense. If the public likes Oracular better than whatever, i get it. BUT AT LEAST SHOW SOME RESPECT FOR THE OTHER SONGS. From where I was ( Orch row U ) in the back.... people were DEAD. they just STOOD. no swaying. no singing. nothing. I felt so weird being the only fan who knew both albums & dancing. NO ONE ( where I was and where my eyes could see ) knew Siberian Breaks, Destrokk, Anything Could Happen ( omg. i thought maybe people even knew the original but the whole venue was dead and lost. ) People sat down for Siberian Breaks & when they thought it was over ( 3 times LOL ) they would stand and clap and then feel like a dumbass and sit back down XD ! Andrew apologized to the crowd for it being a slow song ( slow or long? im pretty sure he said slow. ) He shouldn't apologize. Thats one of the best songs EVER. &For some reason I thought there would be a great big harmony of everyone in the venue singing/shouting "WE LOVE YOU IN GLACIAL WAYYYYYS" during Destrokk.... nope. I was SO embarrassed to be the ONLY person singing/SCREAMING it. You could hear my voice above Andrew's because he was singing lightly at that point. I brushed it off and kept singing/shouting it. screw you, audience. OF COURSE the crowd SHAT their pants for Time To Pretend, Electric Feel & Kids.


PS; i totally SHAT my pants when the last song, Brian Eno, came on. Since they ended early & my dad was coming at 12 someone from the MGMT forum suggested i go meet them so i thought that would be better than doing nothing. waited&waited&waited. no luck, my dad came. oh well. i just wanted to say "Hi" and thank them and ask for them to play Boogie Down for the NJ show :X WHICH BY THE WAY IM SO FUCKING EXCITED! 2 MORE DAYS! I wont have to deal with a shit crowd & it will be ALL about the boys. It's a standing gig. *_* &i'm pretty sure there isn't an opening act ( PLEASE, GOD! LET THERE NOT BE AN OPENING ACT! I WOULD FUCKING LOVE TO HEAR METANOIA & SIBERIAN BREAKS ALL IN ONE ACT! )

ps; lose the headbands.


"But it's you who's being used" .... Congratulations to the boys on selling out BOTH nights. The crowd that didn't know half the songs paid $50+ to see them. amazing.
