I'm Fixin' To Do Something Dumber Than Hell, But I'm Going Anyway

by Rainier on Nov. 2, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We just came back from the Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch and Drowning Pool concert. The turnout was a bit smaller than anticipated, but with the SF Giants still in the running for the World Series championship, I guess a lot of people stayed home to watch the game on TV. (SF Giants won, btw.)

Either way, it was a good show. Surprisingly, Drowning Pool opened ahead of FFDP. The lineup order was fine by us, since we were mainly there to see them anyhow. While Godsmack is a little more subdued compared to the opening acts, their performance was top-notch with lots of video footage, lasers and other gizmos. The highlight of the evening was when the lead singer got on a second drumset. Jolly good show!
