Wow, I really never get to this blog, do I?
Anyway. I just saw Rancid live. They were AMAZING. Played (almost) everything I wanted to hear, still hop around like they're 20, and of course, SOUNDED great.
The setlist went something like (not really in order):
Maxwell Murder (plus rad bass solo)
The 11th Hour
Black and Blue
Lock, Step and Gone
The Wars End
Journey to the End of the East Bay
Knowledge (Operation Ivy)
Otherside (which almost made me cry. haha. it makes me sad.)
And a few others from B Sides that I don't know. I'm sure I'm missing a few from other CDs as well. They played probably about 30 songs, so I KNOW I'm missing some.
They played for about an hour and a half. One of the opening bands I now love, (Big D and the Kids Table), and I missed the other (Bloodclot).
I went a little crazy at the merch booth, I bought a 4 vinyl record set (Lets Go, ...AOCTW, Life Wont Wait, Rancid), 3 shirts, a pin, 2 stickers, and the UK Tour 2006 book. Yeah, yeah, I know. But stuff was cheap as hell so I couldn't resist.
Anyway. If anyone gets the chance to go see Rancid while they're on tour, GO! They were great. (:
Edit: My god, I forgot Time Bomb. That was the encore. My dad said it would be Jimmy and Johnny, I said Time Bomb. Now he owes me $5.
